Rehab is an imperative step on the road to recovery, without the help of a residential treatment
facility in California, one will face a variety of challenges. Physical and mental withdrawals are
very difficult to overcome, thankfully you can receive help within our program.
We’re so happy you have decided to take action and better your life by entering an addiction
treatment center. Treatment is a time in which the body repairs itself and overcomes
withdrawals. With the help of proper medication, nutrition, and sleep, those struggling with
substance abuse issues will experience minimal discomfort. At Circle of Hope, we pride
ourselves on offering the highest level of care available at a treatment center in California. This
allows our clients to be comfortable throughout their stay at our treatment center, which will
greatly help improve their chance of achieving long-term recovery.

Packing for Treatment

Most people will be in our treatment center anywhere from 30 to 90 days, so you want to make
sure you have at least a few different outfits to choose from.
Some clothing items you may want to bring with you:

  • Shoes, shirts, pants, shorts, socks
  • Undergarments
  • Light Jacket/coat
  • Robe
  • Slippers
  • Pajamas
  • Hats
  • Belts
  • Swimsuit

Please, DO NOT bring shirts that have pictures of alcohol or drugs on them, as this can trigger
patients. We offer laundry services at Circle of Hope, so you don’t have to over-pack.

Staying at an alcohol or drug abuse treatment center, you are going to be on a much stricter
schedule than the one you are probably used to. You won’t be able to just “run out” to grab
something at a moment’s notice. Therefore, it is important that you arrive with everything you
might need for an overnight stay.

Some personal care items you may want to bring with you:

  • Toothbrush/ toothpaste
  • Shampoo/ conditioner
  • Face wash
  • Body wash
  • Hairbrush
  • Lotion/ moisturizer
  • Deodorant
  • Feminine hygiene products

Please Be Sure to Not Bring Any Personal Care Items Containing Alcohol
Though you will have a stricter schedule throughout the drug rehab program, you will also have
plenty of down time. This means you will have time to really reflect upon your life present,
past, and future. It helps to have a journal on hand to record how things are going, how you are
feeling or simply to record your goals and dreams. Also, if you are a reader, books and
magazines are also permitted as long as they don’t promote drug paraphernalia or substance

  • Alarm clock
  • Books or magazines
  • Personal journal

If needed, you should bring money with you to purchase nicotine products or prescription co-
pays. We will keep your money in your file or personal locker while in our program so that you
do not have to concern yourself with purchasing items or medication, we take care of
everything for you. If you typically do not carry cash, you can bring your credit or debit card
with you and we will add it to your file. If you forget, a loved one can always place some type of
payment on file for you.
You’ll need your insurance card and government-issued ID, this just makes the intake process a
bit easier. Please also bring any medicines your doctor prescribed to you that you take on a
regular basis. We don’t want you to go without these important medications for any period of
time. Of course, leave any hazardous items, narcotic drugs of any kind, and alcohol at home. If
these items are brought in, they will be confiscated and disposed of.

Other items that may be helpful during your stay:

  • Family photos or sentimental items
  • Notebooks or journals
  • Books or magazines
  • Sketch books, coloring books, or activity books like crossword puzzles

If you have any questions about what you should or should not bring to our rehab center,
please just contact our toll-free line. One of our staff members is always standing by ready to
answer any questions you might have. Whether you are about to enter our treatment center or
looking to see if we are a good match for you, we can help. Calls are always free of charge and
totally confidential.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It

  • I'm from the suburbs of Chicago and have been in quite a few treatment centers. Circle of Hope is hands down the best and most comfortable rehab I have ever been in. Not to mention how caring and helpful all the staff are. The door to my counselors office was always open when ever you needed to talk. Everyone genuinely cares there and that’s what made it a special place for me. My four boys are going to get back their Sober and clean Dad back thanks to the help from Circle of Hope.

  • Circle of hope changed my life!! Great food, great staff, wonderful place! Awesome to get to know the amazing clients and see that i was not alone in my recovery. I made friends for life in the short time i got to spend there. Not a better facility anywhere in my opinion!!The team of employees, from the Technicians all the way up to the Owner, all have a patient first mentality.

  • Going to treatment at circle of hope was one of the best programs Ive participated in, they helped me get my life back. They have amazing staff and over all good natured people. They focus on all aspects of counseling , case management, meetings, different types of therapy, including trauma, one on one counseling. This is coming from someone who has been traumatized and neglected. They helped me get to the root of the problem. Which most times can feel very uncomfortable but they provide groups that you participate in and communicate to other addicts and hear their life stories. They really are an organization of team working to help heal the conflicted minds of us addicts that we faced everyday. I would highly recommend this treatment program to anyone suffering from substance abuse or mental health.
