An Overview on Bartlett Recovery Centers
In July 2012, the village board of Bartlett, Illinois enacted an ordinance that tightened controls on video gambling, which will soon be available throughout the state. Significantly, this ordinance was made part of the regulations governing liquor control. It will require establishments serving alcohol to pay a $25 fee for every video gambling terminal in addition to having valid liquor and gambling terminal licenses from the state as well as the village.
Alcohol consumption impairs judgment; compulsive gambling is among the most serious non-chemical addictions in the US, affecting between 2 and 5 percent of the population. In fact, almost any behavior can become an addiction if it controls a person’s life.
Whether an addiction is chemical or behavioral however, help and treatment options are available in Bartlett and throughout the US.
Items to Take to Treatment
Once you have chosen a treatment facility and are planning to undergo a residential program, you will need to either speak to the admissions office or consult the facility’s website to find out what you should bring with you. In general, you should have:
- You insurance card
- Toiletries (razor, toothpaste and toothbrush, etc.)
- Any prescription medications you routinely take (along with the prescription)
Your counselor and the doctor on staff may have you bring other items as well.
What Not to Bring
Generally, there are things that patients are not allowed to bring to a rehab center. These include anything containing alcohol, including mouthwash, cough medicine, and even cologne. In addition, most places do not allow laptops, cell phones or other electronics; contact with outside friends and family is usually limited so the patient can focus on recovery.
