A Better Today

While Your
Loved One is in Rehab

Things You Can do While Your Loved One is in Substance Abuse Treatment

One thing you can do for your loved one that is in treatment is write them a letter as well as inviting others to do the same, including family & friends who they have lost touch with over the course of their addiction. You can send them a nice card and let them know that you are thinking about them.

You may even include a few photographs for them to have during their time in treatment so that they may decorate their room and make it more at home. This is especially a good option for those who are traveling out of state for treatment, or if you are unable to travel.

Sometimes, feelings and emotions are hard to communicate over the phone or in person. Maybe you want to tell your loved one how much you value them and how much you don’t want to lose them to their addiction. Always keep communication with your loved one who is in treatment positive and uplifting.

A Gift Card Can Go a Long Way in Rehab

A Better Today is a cashless environment. We understand that in early treatment, having access to money can be a trigger and cause problems. We do supply groceries for our clients, but we also allow our clients weekly and monthly scheduled visits to convenience stores and grocery stores.

You can show your support by purchasing your loved one a Visa or Mastercard gift card through A Better Today’s gift card service.

This can make sure that your loved one has the funds needed to purchase things such as hygiene items, clothing, or other necessities. If your loved one has his or her own credit or debit card, you can bring it with them upon admission and it will be secured and pulled from the front office only when a trip to the store is requested.

Sending Care Packages: Clothing & Other Items

You can also send them a package with clothes, shoes, or other items that they will need during their time in treatment. Many times, in the haste of making sure your loved one gets to treatment, some important things can be forgotten to pack.

Feel free to send your loved one care packages. You can include clothing (dress code appropriate). For example, if winter is approaching, it may be good to send your loved one some sweaters and jackets.

Other things you can send them books, devotionals, or magazines that will give your loved one something to read in their free time. You can even send them flowers! Our clients are overjoyed when they receive these types of care packages from family. Getting things in the mail like magazines can certainly help pass the time. Sometimes, it’s the little things that count.

If you are unsure if something you want to send is allowed, feel free to reach out and contact us!
