What Should I Bring and NOT Bring to Treatment

We strongly encourage prior to packing for Cumberland Heights, you take a moment to review the following list of items that will and will not be allowed during your stay here. Tennessee weather includes all four seasons. This will play a part in determining a patient’s needs while here.

If any prohibited items are brought on campus, our security team will document and securely store away for the duration of the patients stay.

Generally $10 – $20 in spending money per week is sufficient for your incidentals. Wallets can be stored in the safe in Patient Finance but we are not able to accommodate purses.
