What to Bring to Addiction Treatment


If you are suffering from any form of addiction and you are in need of treatment, you can expect to overcome this disease at a professional treatment facility that provides comfort and safety.

Pursuing addiction treatment will be the best decision you can make for yourself, and entering rehab will help build a strong foundation for a successful recovery journey. You may be wondering how long your stay in rehab will be or what to pack beforehand. Each facility has their own set of guidelines when it comes to what they will provide and what you should bring to rehab. Our drug rehab in South Florida provides insight into what a patient should bring to addiction treatment, and how this time away from home will allow them to overcome any addiction that is present. Banyan Treatment Center provides customized addiction treatment programs in Pompano Beach, and we guide our patients through the entire process.

Pack the Essentials

When you first start to pack for rehab, you should begin with the essentials, such as small amounts of cash for vending machines, insurance cards, forms of identification, and credit cards. We suggest that you bring a notebook to journal in, as you will learn new techniques for expressing your emotions during therapy. Some rehab facilities will provide reading materials; however, you may want to bring some of your favorite books for when you have down time. You should also pack your prescription medications if you have any, as well as photos of your loved ones. These photos will bring you a sense of comfort and they will remind you why your sobriety is so important.

Pack Comfortable Clothing

Make sure you pack weather-appropriate clothing. We suggest that you bring layered options, such as sweaters and cardigans, if you are worried about being cold. You want to feel comfortable throughout the day, and you should also consider gym clothes if the facility you are attending offers outdoor activities and a gym.

What Not to Bring to Rehab

There are certain items that you should not bring with you to rehab. These items include valuables such as jewelry, electronics with Internet access, illegal drugs, and alcohol. Rehab is a time to focus solely on reaching sobriety, and items that can compromise this will not be allowed.


The recovery journey often begins with rehab, and anyone can successfully complete a program with the proper tools and attitude. If you are suffering from any addiction, help is just one phone call away. Contact Banyan Treatment Center at 888-280-4763 for more information about our treatment programs.
