You might be wondering what you can bring into treatment. We want you to feel as informed and prepared as possible and have put together this list of items with your safety, privacy, and well-being in mind. If you aren’t sure if you can bring in a certain item, you may call us to ask. All belongings will be searched upon admission.
Please bring your health insurance card (if applicable) and a driver’s license, government issues ID, passport, birth certificate, or your social security card.
Pack Clothing for the Proper Season
Pack enough season-appropriate clothes for at least 2 weeks. Please do not overpack. It’s a good idea to bring both indoor and outdoor clothing (as you will sometimes take part in outdoor activities). All facilities provide laundry capabilities, so you can wash your clothing as often as you wish.
• Casual clothes
• Socks (several pairs)
• A jacket, sweatshirt, or heavy sweater
• Sweats / workout clothes
• Walking shoes or tennis shoes
• Bathing suit (for beach activities)
• Job search clothes (if appropriate)
Bring Hygiene Items to Make You Comfortable
Having everything you use day to day in terms of hygiene will help you fall into a healthy rhythm. While they might not seem extremely important, having these comforts will make you as comfortable as possible and will help you integrate successfully into your living environment.
Personal hygiene articles:
• Bath soap
• Shampoo / Conditioner
• Toothpaste and toothbrush
Bring Healthy Comforts from Home
We all have those items that remind us of home. Whether it’s a book, picture, stuffed animal or anything in between, having these items reminds us of what we are leaving behind and what we can look forward to going back to. While we don’t recommend bringing every single memento or trinket that reminds you of past better times, having a few key items will help you make your environment feel home-y even faster. Other than sentimental items, there are important other items that would be a bummer to forget, especially with being gone for an extended period.
Other Important Items:
• Prescriptions for any approved medications (kept in original containers)
• Cell phone and charger
• Blow dryer, curling iron or flat iron
• Comb / brush
• Portable music player
• Cigarettes (or some money for cigarettes)
• Multivitamins (strictly one nationally recognized brand)
• Alarm clock
• Personal diary, books, address book, stationery
• Stamps and stationery (if you plan to write letters to loved ones)
What to Leave at Home
• Valuable (expensive jewelry, large amounts of cash, checkbooks)
• Vehicles and car keys
• Candles or incense
• Cameras or audio/video recording devices
• Revealing or provocative clothing (i.e. short shorts, low cut shirts, jeans with significant holes, skirts with high slits). These items are not permitted
