Valuables - The value of individual items that we hold for a client in contraband is not to exceed $500.00 (this will include CD players, no cash is allowed in contraband, etc.) Any items exceeding this amount will be kept in our administrative safe and arrangements will be made with the client’s family to pick them up. Please do not bring any expensive jewelry or any valuable items not necessary for treatment. Cash – Client Incidental Funds is an account that can be developed for a client to keep money on hand during his/her stay at LVRC. There is a maximum amount of $25 a client can have on his/her person at one time. Any additional monies will be deposited into the Client Incidental Fund. Each client will have a running ledger to balance all deposits and withdrawals made on this account. As a client progresses into longer lengths of stay, some items from the above contraband list may be allowed if the client is participating in his/her program and receives approval from his/her primary counselor. Additional Items - Any items that a client forgets to bring when admitted or additional items he/she needs may be dropped off by a loved one, only with prior approval and scheduling by the client’s primary counselor.
Directly following admission, LVRC staff will conduct a search of all clothing and bags belonging to the client. The client will be asked to remove all articles of clothing on his/her person and will be given a towel to wear while a staff member checks said items for contraband. LVRC staff will not touch the client or conduct a search of the client’s body. Clients with long hair will be asked to shake hair out; clients with wigs will be asked to remove them for inspection. LVRC reserves the right to search client rooms and clothing at any time during the course of admission. Full cooperation is imperative; searches help to ensure everyone’s safety.
