What to Bring You’re excited and ready for rehab — there’s just one step left. Packing! While you can usually buy any basic supplies you forget, it’s still best, and most comforting, to make sure you have what you need from home. So, what should you bring, and what should you leave behind? Our approved, and suggested, items to bring include comfortable, everyday clothes. You may also want to bring workout clothes or appropriate swimwear. For women, this means a one-piece swimsuit that covers your midsection. Men, please no Speedos! Don’t forget your sunglasses, sunscreen or sunhat as well.

You should bring any approved prescription or over-the-counter medications. These have to be appropriately labeled with your name, the name of the medication and dosage instructions. They’ll also be handed over to staff on arrival. Our great team of physicians and counselors will make sure you get what you need, when you need it!

You can bring an iPod as long as it doesn’t have a camera or Internet capability. We also recommend bringing an alarm clock.

Have Questions About What to Bring?

The Michael’s House treatment team reserves the right to prohibit, on an individual basis, items that have a strong potential of interfering with recovery. All personal items will be subject to search by agency staff at admission, randomly and after off-campus outings. That is to say, we want you to be healthy, safe and comfortable! If you have any questions about what to bring or what will be provided, just give us a call! We’re here to answer your questions about treatment, admissions and more.
