Most people don’t know what to expect from treatment, especially if they’ve never had the experience beforehand. And, that’s perfectly fine! We want to make sure all people who come to us for help are comfortable. We also want to make sure everyone is prepared to focus on their recovery. So, to help, provided is a list of things to bring to Willow’s sober living facilities. Additionally, we’ve provided lists which provide examples of both acceptable and unacceptable attire at any of our facilities.
What to Bring to The Lilly Pad or Asheville Sober Living Housing
First and foremost, we want to make sure residents are aware that Willow housing facilities are not permanent residential facilities. And, there is limited space to store personal belongings. If, in fact, too many belongings are brought to a housing residence, they must be shipped back to the individual’s home address. So, keep in mind that packing light will help to reduce the chance of not being able to store your belongings.
Secondly, if you’ll be attending school or work while enrolled in the program, you’ll need to bring a work uniform and/or appropriate attire to meet the needs of these obligations. Besides work or school clothes, you’ll only need to pack a few outfits. But, be sure you’re packing appropriately for the current season. Remember, there will be outings during your time at The Willow Place. So, be sure to pack at least a few long-sleeved shirts, pants, a hat, and sunscreen to prepare for the outdoors.
