How to Pack for Rehab

The items you’ll need to bring with you can be broken down into the following categories:

Clothing
Most rehab facilities have a strict dress code. Be sure to research this before you start packing to ensure all your clothes fit the bill.

Toiletries
Make sure you have enough toiletries to last you the length of your stay. Be sure to avoid bringing any toiletries that contain alcohol, such as mouthwash.

Additional Items
You don’t need to bring a lot of outside items to rehab with you, other than clothes and toiletries. You may need the following items at some point during your stay, though:

Contact information for loved ones you want to visit you or whom you want to be involved in your treatment
Any prescription medications you need, with their label still intact
Some cash ($50-$100 or less) to handle any purchases you want to make
Copies of your insurance card and ID
A journal
Stamps and envelopes for mailing letters

What Not to Bring
In addition to knowing what to bring, it’s important to know what not to bring as well. The following are some items you’re going to want to leave at home:

Outside food or drinks
Pornographic material
Electronic cigarettes
Unapproved medications
Weapons
Inappropriate clothing
Cleaning supplies
Electronics
Candles or incenses
