What You Should Bring to Drug Rehab

If you are preparing for a stay at our drug rehab facility, it’s important to know what items are appropriate to bring. Here is a quick list outlining what to bring for your stay with us.

  • Clothing and Shoes: Bring 1-2 weeks’ worth of comfortable clothes and shoes, limiting your luggage to a maximum of two suitcases. On-site laundry facilities and supplies are available for patient use at the treatment facility.
  • Alcohol-Free Toiletries: Toiletries such as shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, shaving articles, hairdryer, etc. should be alcohol-free.
  • Photo ID and Insurance Card: Bring a valid photo ID, such as a driver’s license, passport, or work ID, as well as your medical insurance card.
  • Medication List: Bring a list of your medications, including dosages, and any known medication allergies, as well as any food or drink allergies.
  • Writing Materials: Bring your own writing materials or use those provided. Taking notes can help you retain important information and can be a relaxing activity.
  • Possible Extras: You may want to bring personal items like family photos, journaling materials, books, or spiritual/religious items to enhance your comfort and well-being during your stay. We want to ensure your safety and comfort at all times.

What Not to Bring to Drug Rehab

Patients should avoid bringing any items that may be harmful to themselves or others in a residential treatment program, or that may disrupt the therapeutic environment. This includes illegal drugs, alcohol, weapons, pornographic materials, and any electronics that can access the internet or make phone calls. Additionally, items that may be triggers for substance use or that could distract from recovery efforts, such as excess cash or valuable jewelry, should be left at home.

Checking In at The Recovery Team

Upon arrival at The Recovery Team facility, you’ll check in your bags and complete the necessary paperwork. A staff member will then review your belongings to ensure that you have only brought appropriate items for your treatment. Any items that are deemed inappropriate will be either sent home with a family member or stored until your discharge if no family is present at the time of your arrival.
