What To Expect
Things you should know, before you go
We make sure that our treatment programs will be able to really work their way in helping the individual reach optimum mental wellness as well as stay sober and addiction-free for the rest of their lives.
While we provide treatment services that are unlike hospital-based inpatient services where many of the individual’s freedoms may not be guaranteed, we do enforce some rules and certain policies that value the rights of everyone in our treatment facilities as well as make sure that individuals stay focused on their treatment goals. We make sure that there are no distractions that can significantly undermine the individual’s healing progress. As such, while our rules may appear like a curtailment of some of the individual freedoms, they are actually guarantees that help the individual stay the course on the road to recovery and regain full control of their life. We want your treatment program to be as safe and effective as possible.
There are items that individuals will be allowed to bring such as clothing which should be just enough to last about 7 to 10 days. All Sprout Health Group treatment facilities already provide self-service laundry services with free supply of detergent to help individuals do their laundry. This also means they don’t have to bring their entire wardrobes to the treatment facility. What they will need to bring however, are all essential things that they will need in their day-to-day lives. Reading materials are strongly encouraged except pornographic and violent ones. Portable music devices with earphones are encouraged as long as they do not have communications and/or data transmission capability. Personal hygiene products are allowed except for items that contain alcohol as well as other intoxicating substances. Electric razors are allowed but not scissors or tweezers.
You are also allowed to bring your prescription medications and/or health supplements. You are only allowed to bring enough supply to last the entire duration of your treatment. If you have to bring over-the-counter medications, make sure that you have a valid doctor’s order or a valid medical condition for it.
Other materials that are not allowed are drugs, alcohol, clothing and other items that depict drugs and alcohol, electronic devices with communications and data transmission devices including mobile phones, laptops, cameras, video recording devices, and highly valuable items like jewelry.
Review of Items
During the pre-admissions phase, our intake members will advise our clients that all items brought to the Sprout Health Group treatment facility will be reviewed and an inventory made prior to check-in. This also holds true to items or packages sent by family members or friends to clients in the treatment facility. We employ thorough and comprehensive searches and reviews in order to make sure that the client will not get distracted in his treatment. All items that families may wish to send clients can do so by sending them to the clinical suite of theSprout Health Group treatment facility where their loved ones are staying for their treatment.
We strongly advise our clients to use their credit or debit cards during our once-a-week shopping trips. Understand however, that there is a budget ceiling of $30 during these trips. Individuals who don’t want to bring their cards can bring cash instead. However, the amount should not exceed the $30 weekly limit. This means if the individual is in a 30-day program then the individual should bring with them not more than $120 for the entire duration of their treatment. Families of clients are encouraged to send refillable gift cards instead of cash or even debit cards.
Sprout Health Group understands the need to communicate with family and friends even co-workers. As such, while smartphones and mobile phones are not allowed, individuals will be granted email access but only during business hours. Phone access is also made available to the individual upon their arrival at the treatment facility as well as during the entire course of their treatment but only during business hours and at the therapeutic or clinical suite. During the first week of the client’s treatment, a primary therapist will serve as the communications conduit or liaison between the client and their loved ones.
