What to Bring to Treatment


  • Appropriate attire is essential. Please bring clothes you are comfortable wearing to attend groups. Clients typically wear jeans and casual clothing throughout the day. Group rooms are often cold so please bring a sweater or jacket.
  • Group exercise is incorporated into treatment. Please bring appropriate clothing to wear to exercise. Tank tops are not permitted during exercise. Running shoes are recommended.
  • Clothing that depicts alcohol, drugs, sex, or violence will not be allowed. We want to be respectful of everyone’s recovery so tank tops, leggings, and shorts short in length will not be permitted.
  • Undergarments and clothing to sleep in are required for both men and women.
  • Clients farther along in the program have the option to attend religious services off our campus. If you plan on doing so, please bring clothing you are comfortable wearing to these services.

Personal Hygiene Products

  • Please bring your own personal hygiene products including but not limited to: shampoo, body wash, conditioner, deodorant, etc.
  • Please bring your own toothbrush and toothpaste
  • Please be cognizant that nothing can contain alcohol in the first five ingredients. This typically pertains to mouthwash, cologne/perfume, and men’s after shave.
  • You may bring a razor for shaving.
  • You may bring make- up, hair styling products, and hair styling tools.
  • Please do not bring men’s clippers, aerosol hairspray, or hair dye.

Additional Items

  • Musical Instruments are allowed.
  • Portable Radios, CD Players, and MP3 Players are allowed. Please bring headphones. Your MP3 player can’t have the ability to connect to the internet or take pictures. We encourage an iPod Shuffle.
  • Any and all medication you are taking in appropriately labeled prescription bottles. Medications need to be current. Please bring in any over the counter medications in new, unsealed containers. Over the counters will be approved at the discretion of the nurse on duty.
  • Clients need a small amount of money, typically around $60, for things such as laundry, vending machines, and books. There is an ATM on campus if necessary.

What to Leave at Home

  • Laptops and tablets
  • Cell Phones (The exception would be if you are traveling to come to treatment.)
  • Playing cards, games
  • Reading materials unrelated to recovery
  • Over-the-counter medications

We encourage clients to have loved ones bring them to treatment; having a car on campus can often be a hindrance. If you do have a car on campus, we reserve the right to search the vehicle upon arrival at Santé and upon return any time the vehicle leaves campus. As clients progress through the program, they may gain privileges to leave campus with other clients in personal vehicles.

If you have additional questions about what to bring please ask the intake department. We’re available 24 hours a day and are here to help every step of the way so please don’t hesitate to call.
