Wellbriety at Sound Recovery
Royal Life Centers
Healing at Sound Recovery
Substance abuse treatment for Tribal members should be specialized to include a foundation of culture, tradition, and values. At the core of Native American culture is the concept that everything is spiritual. We work closely with our tribal guests to help reconnect their spirit to all things around them. At Sound Recovery, we believe that spiritual healing is as important to the recovery process as mental or physical healing.
Our commitment to providing loving care for those who seek our help has extended to reach tribal members who deserve a full opportunity to experience a life of sobriety built on their cultural beliefs and foundation of values. It is our goal and our honor to serve these men and women as they take on a new journey toward sobriety and beyond. We believe that our tribal guests deserve the pinnacle of care, and as such, we treat them as our own family. In fact, many tribal members go on to join the Royal Life family as staff members to help heal their brothers and sisters!
Wellbriety & White Bison
The Wellbriety Movement was formed as a way to fill the gap in Native American healthcare, providing culturally-based healing for current and future generations of Indigenous people.
As a center of excellence, White Bison offers training, tools, and resources that promote sustainable growth within Native American Communities.

Diagram of a stone Medicine WheelThis diagram depicts an Ojibwe Indian Stone Medicine Wheel. Each stone within the wheel symbolizes a specific aspect of life and the placement of that stone is emblematic of the interconnected nature of all things. The Medicine Wheel is based on Native American teachings relating to the seasons, directions, elements, colors, and the cycle of life. It speaks of the need for balance, harmony, and respect as bringers of happiness.

The Medicine Wheel and 12-step program is another certification that is focused on mending the pain that is present across tribal communities (violence, suicide, the impact of addiction, etc.). This helps to form a program geared specifically to model a 12-step approach that has a foundation in tribal culture.
This augmented 12-step program is based on teachings of the medicine wheel, the cycle of life, the Four Laws of Change, and ceremonial practice. This adds culture, tradition, and values into a 12-step approach. It has proven to be the missing piece for many tribal members who need more of a customized approach to a traditional 12-step program of recovery.

“Royal Life centers completely changed my life. I had lost all hope that a life in sobriety could be possible for a person who had struggled for so long to no avail. Royal gave me the chance to stay sober and figure out who I was and who I could be. The staff that was there were the most amazing and supportive group I have ever encountered and they believed in me when I could not believe in myself. I will forever be grateful for the Royal life community.”
