What to Bring to Rehab

When you make the all-important decision to seek addiction treatment, various thoughts might go through your mind. If you’ve opted for a residential treatment center, your initial concern might be what you can bring with you. Figuring out what you can bring to a specific treatment center depends on the treatment center you’ve chosen and what its policies are regarding personal effects.

Summit Detox provides a list of items you can bring with you to the rehab facility so you can effectively prepare for your time in our detox center in Boynton Beach, FL. Our goal is successful recovery, which means we try to ensure you bring the items that’ll ensure your comfort during your stay.

Acceptable Items to Bring to Rehab

Before you arrive at Summit, our admissions department will provide you with a detailed list of what to bring with you for your stay. Our admissions process is meant to help you prepare for your stay without additional stress. Specific items that appear on this list include:

  • Your personal ID and insurance information (including the actual insurance cards for quick check-in)
  • Comfortable clothes
  • Personal beauty and wellness items
  • Prescription medications (in the original pharmacy bottle)
  • Books or magazines
  • Tobacco products (including cigarettes and chewing tobacco)
  • Only UNOPENED, DISPOSABLE vapes are allowed (any open cartridges, juices, etc., will be confiscated)
  • Emergency numbers for family members

In all cases, we strive to make you feel comfortable and at home throughout the detox process. As a general rule, we encourage you to bring reading materials and other items that help you relax between sessions and activities. The cornerstone of our treatment plan is wellness, and your personal effects are an important part of that approach.

Specific Clothing Items to Pack for Detox and Rehab

As you focus on recovery, being comfortable is imperative to your success. As such, choose clothing that not only makes you feel good but also allows you to fully participate in the various aspects of your treatment center of choice. Ideal clothing options include:

  • Comfortable footwear, preferably tennis shoes for physical activity and flip-flops to wear around the rehab facility and in the shower
  • T-shirts, which are ideal for lounging, sitting through therapy sessions, and engaging in physical activity
  • Shorts if you’re attending a treatment center in a warm locale like Florida
  • Socks to keep your feet warm as treatment centers tend to be cool
  • A bathing suit for water-based activities
  • A hooded sweatshirt or jacket to keep you warm if the temperature in the facility gets too cool
  • Undergarments to keep you clean and comfortable under your clothing
  • Pajamas to sleep in at night

The goal is comfort over style when it comes to clothing to pack for inpatient treatment. Prioritize options that will feel good on your body, since the detox component of most rehab facilities can be uncomfortable.

Personal Hygiene Products Ideal for Detox and Rehab

Most treatment facilities require your personal products to be alcohol-free. Bring enough of your chosen products to last the entirety of your stay, if possible. These include:

  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Feminine products
  • Deodorant
  • Lotion and sunscreen
  • Shaving products
  • A comb/brush

Some rehab centers will have vending machines with any items you might have neglected to bring.

Prepare for Rehab to Ease Anxiety

The more you prepare for your time in substance abuse treatment, the more likely it is that you’ll be less anxious about the process. Sometimes, small things like wearing your wedding ring in treatment or being assured access to the over-the counter-medications you’re accustomed to having can make the difference in successfully completing inpatient detox.

Many treatment centers will work with you to make the check-in process as seamless as possible where your personal effects are concerned.
