What to Bring to Enterhealth Ranch

While participating in the Enterhealth Ranch residential treatment program, we want our clients to be comfortable. To that end, we put together this list of what to bring – and what not to bring.

All bedding, towels, pillows, writing materials, and alarm clocks will be provided. But you should bring clothes for approximately 7-14 days. There is a laundry room available, or clients may choose to send clothes out for dry cleaning services. All laundry supplies (detergent, stain remover, starch, iron, and ironing board) will be provided.

Pack toiletries, a personal blanket (if desired), a small amount of cash or credit cards, any sentimental items, photos, comfortable clothes, tennis shoes, and a sweater or jacket depending upon the season. During summer, guests can take advantage of the outdoor swimming pool – ladies are encouraged to bring one-piece bathing suits; gentlemen may bring swim trunks.

Telephone Policy

Residential treatment at Enterhealth Ranch does include specified times for open telephone use each morning and evening through generalized access. We understand that clients may have business, legal and family issues to deal with outside of their addiction treatment and recovery. Our clinical team will work with you to best accommodate any communication issues.
