Is There a Checklist for Recovery?

Most of the residential treatment facilities offer top notch accommodations, with rooms that are semi-private, or shared.

There are various styles of addiction treatment, and many different types of drug rehab centers in Utah, therefore, there are a variety of philosophies about what a patient should bring with them to treatment. Some facilities prefer new patients to bring their personal effects and clothing that will last the term of the planned treatment. Other programs take a minimal approach and request that the individual bring next to nothing. There are programs that focus on a more experiential recovery strategy that might have a special set of items for the patients to bring, in order to properly make it through the program. In the most modern case, a high quality and well-established recovery facility for drug and alcohol treatment may suggest the option to pack well but pack light.

Most of the residential treatment facilities offer top notch accommodations, with rooms that are semi-private, or shared. The concept of a “shared room” might seem like it is contrary to the desire for deeply personal introspection through recovery; however, the simple fact that isolation can significantly impact an addict through recovery, particularly during the emotional and stressful periods of treatment for drug abuse or alcohol addiction, companionship is more essential than the need for space. The shared room situation allows individuals in treatment to take advantage of the need for a meaningful friendship and connection so that they can achieve sobriety together.

As a result, there is little storage space, and bringing an entire closet of clothes to treatment will be challenging to manage. Dressing appropriately while at treatment, such as wearing clothing that covers the stomach and doesn’t expose the thighs, pants that fit properly, and shirts that keep the upper arms covered will be the most proper. The patients will find themselves feeling that they fit in well with their fellow recovering addicts and can avoid any further social challenges beyond the ones that necessarily come with meeting new people in a new, and at times stressful, environment.

Since there are prescription services available through most elite treatment facilities, there is no need to stockpile medications for recovery. The medical staff at the facility will work with each individual and their insurance provider to make certain that prescriptions are filled as needed. The sober lifestyle required in treatment extends beyond each addict avoiding their drug of personal choice and becomes a community responsibility; therefore, those items that may present a problem are stored securely during the patient’s stay.
