Things to Bring

We are excited for your commitment!

We are thrilled that you have decided to receive treatment at Valley Recovery Center. Our entire team is committed to providing with support and care throughout the recovery process. We will provide you with the resources and tools necessary for living a life without drugs and alcohol. There are a few things you will need to bring for your stay here at Valley Recovery Center.

You will need a couple types of clothing for the different activities you will participate in, specifically casual wear and exercise clothes. You will also need comfortable pajamas, particularly during the detoxification process. Bedding and linens will be provided for you.

You should also bring your identification, insurance information, and any medications you’ve been prescribed. Over the counter medicine that is not still sealed will be promptly destroyed. You should bring all of the toiletries you will need, but keep in mind they must be alcohol free. Fragrances are an exception to that, but they will be stored in the staff office. Some electronics are permitted, including cell phones (with limitations) and mp3 players and other music devices. Music devices are allowed provided they cannot connect to the internet and can only be heard with headphones

You should carefully consider what you want to bring, because everything needs to fit in just a couple of bags. Also, do not bring any contraband into our facility. This includes drugs, alcohol, weapons, cameras, aerosol, matches, butane lighters, computers, televisions, dvd players, and unauthorized medications
