Searching for Leominster Rehabilitation Services
On July 14th 2012, Massachusetts state police set up a “sobriety checkpoint” along Route 12 in the city of Leominster. Over the course of the evening, a total of six drivers were arrested and charged with OUI (operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs).
It is important for those with substance abuse problems to understand that they are a threat not only to themselves, but to others as well. Undergoing recovery treatment in Leominster can save lives.
Items to Take to Treatment Clinics
The director or admissions office of your residential treatment program will give you a list of what you will need to bring; this information is also available at the clinic’s website in most cases. A standard list includes:
- Seven to 10 days’ worth of clothing
- Any tobacco products you may use
- Books and magazines (subject to program director’s approval)
- Grooming and hygiene items
- Prescription medications
- A personal item that brings you comfort (photos of family, or a memento from home)
What Not to Take
Drug and alcohol treatment centers have rules about what patients cannot bring. In most cases, you will not be allowed to have a cell phone or a laptop (you may be allowed limited Internet access). Colognes, aftershave lotion and mouthwash that contain alcohol are also prohibited. In addition, you should be aware that most clinics have a dress code: revealing, provocative or worn-out clothing is usually not allowed.
