What to Bring

At Turning Point, it is our goal to create an environment of hope and to prepare you to be successful in your recovery journey. To do so, we put together a convenient list of things that you can and can’t bring to Turning Point. We want to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible.

Patients who are accepted for admission to Turning Point should bring:

  • Four or five changes of comfortable and season-appropriate clothing (laundry facilities are available for patients to use)
  • Toiletries and personal hygiene items
  • Cash or debit card to purchase snacks, cigarettes, etc. as needed.

What Should I Not Bring?

  • Electronic devices, cameras, tape recorders, etc.
  • Weapons or items with sharp edges (including pocket knives, scissors, razor blades)
  • Clothing that is revealing (halter tops, tight-fitting clothing) or has drug or alcohol-related messages
  • Aerosol cans (e.g., hairspray, deodorant, dry shampoo, etc.)
  • Glass containers (e.g., makeup, skincare products, etc.)
