Preparation: Make a list, get it done.
Understand what to bring, and what not to bring.
Clothing and shoes
We recommend clients to bring a few T-Shirts, Shorts, a pair of jeans, clothing to work out in if desired, a pair of flip-flops, and at least one pair of sneakers.
Cell phones & laptops
If clients bring their cell phones or laptops for travel, once they arrive it will be placed in our safe upon admission and then returned upon discharge.
We have a pool on campus and regularly go to the beach on weekends so a bathing suit is also highly recommended, as well as appropriate sunscreen and sunglasses if necessary. For women we prefer one-piece bathing suits.
Insurance & medication
Please also bring the original or copy of your insurance card/prescription card. If clients are on any medications bring them with you so we can get a full assessment.
Clients may also bring any toiletries they wish as long as none of the products contain Alcohol (such as Listerine, Rubbing Alcohol, Hand Sanitizers, etc. ). Please also bring any contacts and related products.
If clients wish to bring extra money to be kept in the safe for cigarettes/extra groceries it will be handed out upon request.
Clients may bring CD players, appropriate DVD’s, small radios, iPods (except for any device that accesses the Internet or has a camera, such as the iPad or iPod Touch) and books to help themselves relax during down time.
If clients need any phone numbers, they can access them with their counselors during their stay.
We employ a dress code to establish respect and professionalism while in treatment.
No clothing with inappropriate/offensive sayings, themes, or advertisement will be allowed. This includes but is not limited to alcohol, drugs, drug paraphernalia, firearms, or gang-related insignias. Any clothing advertising such will be confiscated and returned upon discharge.
Clothing should cover from the shoulders to the waist at all times. Clothing that exposes the midriff area while standing, sitting, or reaching is not acceptable. Clothing should cover from the neck or just-below-the-neck, with no low or revealing necklines.

The size of the shirts, blouses, or pants shall be appropriate to the client’s body size and shall not be unduly oversized or undersized.
