What To Bring
Multiple studies have shown residential treatment is an effective form of treatment for mental health and substance use disorders. It allows patients to work on their problems in a stress-free environment without distractions or temptations. Additionally, staying in a residential program allows patients to share space in a supportive, caring environment with people going through the same challenges they are. Sovereign Health maintains multiple treatment houses and apartments in the suburban city of Chandler, Arizona. We strive to create a welcoming, calm environment for women who stay with us.
Treatment is a journey, and like any journey it’s important to prepare before you start. Although cell phone use is initially restricted and later strongly controlled for patient safety, there are many other items patients can bring with them to make their stay even more comfortable. Some of them, such as toiletries, are necessary; others, such as books and alarm clocks, can make the stay more enjoyable. Typically, most stays with Sovereign Health last between 30 and 90 days.
Additionally, patients are welcome – and encouraged – to stay in contact with their loved ones during their stay.
