Royal Pines rests on 75 acres in the tranquil countryside of Hayden, Alabama. The quiet, secluded environment provides a peaceful retreat from the distractions and influences of everyday life. This strategic location plays an integral role in helping clients focus on restoring their lives and building a future story with the help of certified counselors. They guide clients through recovery and life restoration programs focused on physical, mental, relational, vocational and spiritual health.
The welcoming, lodge-style facility is home to up to 45 clients and provides classroom space, counseling offices, and our learning center where clients engage in educational training and job readiness. The chapel is filled multiple times per week as it hosts weekly Celebrate Recovery nights, program graduations, worship services, and special programs. Beautiful exterior seating areas allow clients ample space to appreciate the quiet and beauty of the surroundings.
When the program-specific emphasis is done for the day, clients have access to numerous activities that help improve physical conditioning and forge lasting friendships. The weight training area is always popular and ping-pong, air hockey and the pool table are favorites in the indoor recreation room. Basketball, softball, volleyball, horseshoes and corn hole are mainstays scattered around the exterior landscape.
Royal Pines is a valuable part of the Jimmie Hale Mission and provides an immersive environment where men are equipped with the Godly tools and training they need to overcome the underlying causes of their struggles such as trauma, substance abuse, and mental instability and restore hope and build a solid foundation for a better tomorrow.
