As you prepare to begin your journey to addiction recovery, you may have a variety of questions. One of the most common questions we receive at our addiction treatment center is what to bring to inpatient treatment. The answer to this question is relatively simple. We have listed the items we ask all clients to bring when they first start our residential addiction treatment program. If you have any questions or need to begin the enrollment process, call Spokane Falls Recovery Center at 844.962.2775.

What to Bring to Inpatient Treatment

In order for the admissions process to go smoothly and quickly, we ask that our clients bring several general items. Some of these items are necessary for the admissions process, while other items are necessary for your stay at our treatment center. Please bring the following things when you come to enroll at our treatment center:

  • Driver’s license or another form of identification
  • Insurance cards, including a prescription drug card
  • Credit and/or debit card to pay for prescriptions.
  • A small amount of cash to purchase personal necessities ($50 to $100)

  • Nicotine gum or patches in unopened packaging
