What to Bring to Rehab

what to bring to drug rehab

Deciding to seek treatment for your addiction will be the best decision you can make for yourself.

During addiction treatment, you can expect to focus solely on healing and recovering from your active addiction and you won’t have to deal with outside factors influencing your recovery journey. Rehab can seem intimidating for anyone, and you must trust that this process will completely change your life for the better. When it comes to preparing for rehab, you may be wondering what you can and cannot bring for your stay. Banyan Treatment Center provides customized addiction treatment in Philadelphia and we explain what you should bring for a typical stay in drug rehab.

When you start to pack for rehab, remember that most addiction treatment facilities allow you to bring only the necessities. These include clothing for the amount of time you will be staying for and toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, and deodorant. You will most likely participate in outdoor activities and exercises, so we suggest that you pack running shoes and the appropriate clothing. In order to determine your length of stay, you will receive an initial medical assessment. This evaluation will be used to create a customized treatment plan, which includes the level of care that is needed to best treat your addiction.

You will need a credit/debit card, personal ID, cash, and insurance card. We also suggest that you bring a notebook or diary for you to journal and write down your thoughts. This can be a very cathartic experience for you during this time. You will also get the opportunity to write letters to your loved ones.

What to Not Bring to Rehab

You should not bring any valuable items, such as jewelry and large amounts of cash. Most treatment centers also prohibit electronic devices, so you should keep any iPads, laptops, and tablets at home. Rehab is a time to disconnect from reality and focus on the healing process.

Drug rehab will be extremely worth it in the end, as you have the opportunity to improve your health and well being during this time. If you are suffering from substance abuse and you need help taking that initial step towards recovery, contact Banyan Treatment Center at 888-280-4763 today.
