What to Expect

Congratulations on making the first step!

It is completely normal to feel a bit apprehensive and overwhelmed after making such an important decision. You made the first step, and we are honored to be here with you on your journey to healing and sobriety.

The next step is a phone call with our admissions team. We do have a lengthy list of questions for you, but each question is asked to ensure that we can provide you with the best possible level of care. If it is determined that we cannot meet your treatment needs, we will help you find a facility that can. We just ask that you be honest and patient during the admissions phone call. After that initial assessment, our admissions team will help you arrange transportation to our facility and go over what to expect once you arrive.

What To Bring

The first question most people have is "What can I bring with me?" Below is a list of recommended items, and a list of prohibited items. Please keep in mind that some items are allowed, but need to be kept in a locked safe. Below is a list of all of those items.

Do keep in mind that "Less is best," when packing for a stay with us. We don't recommend bringing excess luggage.

This list of items to bring will make your stay as convenient and comfortable as possible:

Do Not Bring

This is a list of prohibited items. Any item brought on this list may be destroyed, sent back to your mailing address, or locked in a safe until your discharge.

Items Will be Placed in a Safe: 

The following is a list of items that are typically kept in our safe. Electronics are not allowed until after the detox period.
You will be in touch with our admissions team from the moment you make that first call, until the moment you step into our center.

During the admission process, you can expect to answer some questions, provide a brief history, sign some paperwork, and meet with our medical team. We will then show you your bedroom, give you a tour of our facility, and let you rest. The detox process is typically seven days, however, the medical team may shorten or extend that process as necessary. Once you have completed your medical detox , you will move upstairs to a residential bedroom.
