Packing for Recovery Treatment

Preparing For Recovery Treatment At ACTN

Thank you for choosing Addiction Campuses of Tennessee as your place for recovery. We are super excited about what your future holds and can’t wait to meet you!

What kind of clothes to bring?
Students entering the Lodge program should pack about as much clothing as if you were going away for two weeks. We provide you with a washer and dryer to do laundry that you will access to every week. You will need clothes to play in (ie. shorts, swim trunks, tennis shoes etc), clothes to work in (ie. work shoes, pants and old shirts), clothes to attend services and outings in (ie. nice jeans or slacks, button-up shirts, nice shoes), as well as sleeping and lounging type clothes (ie. pajamas, slippers, flip-flops etc). Please limit your belongings to two suitcases or bags. Remember, Spring 2 Life is a Christian organization, so any clothing that represents sex, drugs, alcohol, violence or gang affiliation will not be allowed.
