Rehabilitation for the People of Royal Oak, Michigan
A suburb of Detroit with over 57,000 citizens, Royal Oak is the 27th largest municipality in Michigan. Established as a village in 1891, and a city in 1921, the name of the city originated during a surveying expedition. A large oak tree was found and it reminding the governor, Lewis Cass, of the Royal Oak King Charles II hid in to escape capture during a historic battle. Unfortunately, none of that history protects the city from the plague of drug addiction.
