Packing for your stay in treatment can be overwhelming. Knowing what you should bring to treatment beforehand will be less stressful. There are some things you should bring to treatment and others that are not permitted.
When packing for your stay with Cypress Lakes Lodge, you should bring no more than one suitcase and one small carry-on sized bag. Staff checks each person and anything that is deemed inappropriate will be kept secure until your departure from the facility.
What you should bring to treatment:
- A list of personal contacts with phone numbers. Bring a list of your contacts and phone numbers so you can keep in touch with your loved ones or employer.
- Clothes. Bring several days’ worth of comfortable clothes, including a lightweight jacket or sweatshirt, shorts, tee shirts, and swimsuit. Clients have access to a washer and dryer.

- Toiletries. Bring a toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, hairbrush, shampoo, conditioner, and hair dryer if you use one. Do not bring mouthwash or anything else containing alcohol.
- Medication. If you use prescription medication, bring it with you. However, you will be required to keep it with personnel at the facility during your stay. Bring the medication in its original container.
- Hobby interests. Knitting materials, books with appropriate content and journals are some of the things that will keep you occupied during downtime.
