What to Bring to Rehab


Bring to Rehab

A rehab program for drug or alcohol addiction is often the best way for people to overcome their substance use disorders. However, when people don’t know what to expect in a rehab program, they are less likely to reach out for the help they so desperately need and deserve. If you or someone you care about might benefit from addiction treatment but is unsure what to bring to rehab or what rehab is like, contacting a friendly team of addiction specialists and therapists is often to help. Lighthouse Recovery has an easy to follow rehab packing list to follow, so you know exactly what to bring to rehab.

At Lighthouse Recovery Institute, our team wants you or a loved one to ease any anxiety about entering into an addiction treatment program with us. As a result, we want you to know what to bring to rehab and what our programs are like before you enter our doors. Learn more when you contact our team today by filling out our online form or calling 866-308-2090.

What to Bring to Rehab

Once you’ve decided to enroll in an addiction treatment program at Lighthouse Recovery Institute, our helpful admissions specialists will walk you through the process. We strive to be completely transparent about what to expect and also what to bring to our rehab center in beautiful Boynton Beach, Florida. For the safety of our staff and other clients, it is important to know what to bring to rehab and what to leave at home

Some of the items that you can bring with you when you come to Lighthouse Recovery Institute include:

A list of names, addresses, and phone numbers of those you wish to contact during your treatment

A small amount of cash for store runs or vending machines

Also, you are responsible for bringing any personal hygiene items you might need. We ask that you please don’t bring any aerosol products, and everything must be alcohol-free.

Finally, we will remind you to bring any medication that is prescribed to you in a pill bottle with your name on it. Although we understand that people need to bring any necessary medication, but we are an addiction treatment center, so we have to be careful with which substances enter our doors.
