What Can I Bring With Me Into Rehab?
- A list of names, addresses and phone numbers of those you wish to have involved in your treatment (loved ones, healthcare professionals, sponsors, etc.). It is important to bring in any medical contacts you have been seeing before coming in.
- Jewelry/Watches. Everything is on a schedule so a way to keep track of time will be useful. Nothing with Internet capabilities will be allowed, so no Apple watches etc. Things like your wedding ring, or any other valuables that you can live without, we would suggest leaving at home. We are not responsible for anything that is lost, damaged, or stolen. If a wedding ring is something important for you to wear, consider wearing a less meaningful ring on that finger.
- Your current prescription medication in the original pharmacy bottle with the information label intact. Any liquid medications must be new and sealed. You should also bring a list of all your medications and dosages.
- A small amount of cash ($50 to $100 in smaller bills for store runs, vending machines, etc.)
- Your credit card or debit card to pay for treatment medications.
- Your insurance cards and a form of identification (driver’s license, passport, etc.).
- A notebook or journal.
- Stamps and envelopes if you wish to mail letters.
- Pictures of your loved ones to keep in your room or wallet. We do allow you to hang up some photos with blue sticky tack. Please bring some blue sticky tack if you want to hang them on the walls.
- Reading materials. We will screen these for content. TIP: bring paperback books as they’re easier to carry around than hardcovers.
- You may bring a small mp3 player or IPod. This CANNOT have internet capabilities on it.
What Clothing You Should Bring
We have a very strict dress code, so be aware of any restrictions while you’re packing. If you’re unsure about how to pack for the weather, pack layering options, like T-shirts, sweaters, cardigans and jackets. Keep in mind; space in your room may be limited, so try not to over-pack.
You will have access to a laundry machine at the center, so a week’s worth of clothing should be enough. Be sure to pack clothes that are easy to wash and do not require special care, such as dry cleaning.

If I Bring Something Prohibited, Will I Get it Back Later?
If you arrive at your center and realize you’ve packed something prohibited, don’t worry! If you are traveling with a loved one, they can take it back home for you. If not, we will inventory and lock it up until you leave the center.
However, if it is something that is not legal or something we feel like we should keep, we will discard it.
