Base Camp Packing List

Packing Disclaimer

Our drug and alcohol addiction treatment centers are located in the Greater Denver area in Colorado. Colorado experiences all the seasons, sometimes all in the same week. The staff at Red Rock Recovery Center highly recommend packing accordingly when preparing to come to treatment. It can be difficult knowing what to take to rehab and what you should leave behind. Clients will also participate in outdoor activities as well as going to the gym. It is advised that the client brings approximately 2 weeks’ worth of clothes when packing for rehab. This is limited to one large suitcase and one cary-on size suitcase worth of belongings. The following is a list of items we suggest you bring. Below we outline what to bring to rehab so you can be fully prepared.

What Should I Pack?

  1. Enough appropriate and comfortable clothing for  5-7 days. We have laundry facilities available so no need to overpack.
