Adolescent Treatment Packing List
What to Bring & What to Leave at Home
Of all the steps in the recovery process, packing for adolescent treatment can be one of the most overwhelming and heartbreaking. Putting items in a suitcase carries a heavy load of emotional weight. Whether it’s your child’s first time away from home — and your first time preparing them to leave under these circumstances — or another attempt at recovery for your family, packing is one of the last things that you can do to start your child’s journey off right. At Stonewater Adolescent Recovery Center, we do everything we can to ensure that your adolescent feels welcomed, safe, and at home from the moment that they arrive at our residential adolescent treatment campus in Oxford, MS. Here are some tips on how you can help prepare them for their experience.
