Below is a list of items that are acceptable and those that are not appropriate to bring to residential treatment.

  • Casual attire, modest bathing suit, workout clothing

  • Approved prescription medication (will be locked in office)
  • Insurance card and sufficient money to cover cost of medications

The above lists identify items that are approved to bring to treatment and those which are prohibited. However, these lists may be partial depending on which facility you or your loved one attends. Prior to intake, our admissions staff provides clients with a more detailed list of important items to bring, as well as a list of items that are prohibited from facility grounds.
