What to Bring:

As you or your loved one enters this part of recovery we treat you like the adult you are.  In sober living you will have more responsibilities and more personal freedom than a treatment facility.  With that, there are still items you may and may not have.  Please view below to see what you should bring to Connections Recovery.


  • Personal toiletries
  • Reading material
  • Insurance card
  • Drivers license
  • Auto Insurance Card
  • Picture ID


CRR’s dress code is casual and in good taste.  Please be mindful of the message you want to portray about yourself via your clothing.  Excessively revealing clothing is not allowed, nor are clothing or accessories associated or indicating drug or alcohol use.  Shorts, tank-tops, dresses and tight clothing should be worn with care.  If in doubt, check it out.  Staff at CRR is always available and we reserve the right to ask you to alter your clothing if we find it questionable.  We understand the clothing and style are a matter of personal expression and we hope to work with each resident to help her be and dress as her most healthy self. 

Nashville is in a temperate climate zone.  We experience all four seasons and spring and fall can have extreme differences in temperature.  Layers are encouraged.

Clothing for different roles are encouraged.  (professional, casual, athletic, relaxing)

Clothing that depicts alcohol, drugs, tobacco, sex, and violence or is otherwise deemed inappropriate by staff is not permitted.

Articles deemed inappropriate will be kept secure until your departure.  

What to leave at home:

Upon checking in, our staff will examine you and check your belongings.
