Wondering What to Bring to Treatment?

Here is a list:

Laundry Facilities

Laundry facilities, detergent, an iron, and an ironing board are provided at no cost. All luggage and bags will be searched by staff upon arrival at the facility.

Bedding and Towels

Pillows, sheets, a comforter, and a towel will be provided. Should you choose to bring your own items for comfort reasons, the items must be in good taste and not show excessive wear.


All toiletries must be alcohol-free. You may bring such items as shampoo, conditioner, hair spray, mouth wash (alcohol-free only), and sunscreen. Any items containing alcohol (such as cologne) will be stored in the staff office and may be used with staff supervision.

Spending Money

Clients should bring no more than $400 cash initially. Small bills such as $10s and $20s are preferred. It is highly recommended that these funds be sent to the facility via check instead of sending cash.


Payment balance is due upon admission to the program. Credit card, check, and wire transfer are the acceptable payment types.


Certain program phases do not allow use of cell phones or laptops, but these items may be brought and stored in the staff office until use is permitted.
