Personal Belongings and Valuables
Patients are encouraged to bring enough clothes for three days. Shoes should be slip-on or Velcro closure whenever possible. Clothing that has offensive words, pictures or themes as well as hats and sunglasses are prohibited.
Because valuable items can be lost or stolen, Lasting Hope Recovery Center encourages patients not to wear or keep valuable jewelry in their possession. There is no need to bring more than $5 to the center as there is little that can be purchased and there is no charge for local phone calls.
Cell phones and laptops are prohibited. A doctor's order is required for use of an I-pod or radio. Paper and a writing instrument will be provided upon request. To preserve the confidentiality of all our patients, no cameras, camera enabled cell phones or voice recording devices are allowed on the units.
There are two patient phones on each unit where calls may be made and received throughout the day.
