What to Bring From Home

Comfortable Clothing

During your stay Insight to Recovery, your recovery is your top priority. We operate in a relaxed, casual atmosphere where you can heal your body along with your heart and mind. Be sure to pack exercise clothing, jeans and business casual wear because you will attend special events. Please bring clothing that is conducive to recovery (i.e., no alcohol or drug related slogans or pictures.)

Toiletries or Cosmetics

Make sure to bring your toothbrush, toothpaste, face wash, and any cosmetics that you would like to use. No mouthwash with alcohol

Health Information and Medications

Bring your health insurance card, and a copy of any health related information you need, so that the medical and financial details of your treatment can be taken care of in a streamlined manner. Also bring along any prescribed medications. Your addiction treatment team will perform diagnostic testing and assessment upon arrival. Your medical staff will then help guide you in your prescription needs as you approach recovery.

Pajamas and Slippers

Remember that sleep is an important part of the body’s healing process. Bring comfy pajamas, slippers, and a bathrobe to help promote relaxed sleep. If you are light- or sound-sensitive, you may also consider bringing a sleeping mask or earplugs to ensure deep and uninterrupted rest.

Bathing Suit

Insight to Recovery offers trips to the beach and swimming facilities that will require a bathing suit. Please do not bring thong bathing suits or other revealing swimwear.

Journal and Books

Bring a journal or notebook so that you can chronicle your thoughts and feelings during the recovery process. You may also want to bring books or magazines that you enjoy so that you can read in your free time. Please no books or media that promotes drug use.

Personal Devices, Cell Phones or Music Players

During the first level of care Day/Night (4-6 weeks) the Client will not be permitted to use these devices. Once stepped down to the second phase of treatment the clinical team will decided when the client will be permitted to use the above listed devices.


Sometimes, when we face the road to recovery, the little reminders of home can make a big difference. Consider bringing a few mementos, such as framed photographs, a special knick-knack, or other minor decorations that may help make your stay more comfortable and inspiring.
