Medications – LVRC requests that clients bring in all prescribed medications they are currently taking. These medications need to be in their original labeled bottles. This will help ensure that required medications are continued. Please do not pack medications in your luggage – bag them separately so that LVRC staff can review your medications during the assessment process.

- We will not dispense any over-the-counter medication that is opened or has been used prior to admission.
- Any over-the counter medications will require a written order from the medical staff.
