Laundry: We provide washers, dryers and detergent for residential client use. Clients are responsible for washing their own clothes, linens and towels. Laundry baskets, an iron and an ironing board are provided.
Cars:Vehicles are not allowed while clients are at Skyland Trail South. When a client moves to Skyland Trail North and reaches Level 1, the treatment team will consider allowing access to a car. Permission to have a car at North is granted on a case-by-case basis. Please see the North Level System for restrictions about passengers.
Pets: No pets are permitted inside Skyland Trail facilities. Pets may visit in the residential gardens during visiting hours, but cannot be left unattended. A partnership with Happy Tails allows clients to interact with animals periodically through our LEAP program.
Smoking: All Skyland Trail facilities and vehicles are smoke-free. There is no smoking or tobacco use allowed inside buildings, including client residences and common areas. Each campus has a designated outdoor area for smoking and tobacco use.
Cash: Admissions staff will ask you about leaving an allowance for your loved one. Clients may choose to hold their own money or have it held in the Business Office, where they can access it during designated hours. Families typically leave no more than $20 per week.
Medications: Clients should bring a 7-day supply of medication with them on admission to a residential program. All medications must be in their original bottles or packaging. All client medications must be kept in the locked medication room in the staff office.
Please do not bring over-the-counter medications like aspirin and ibuprofen. These medications are available as needed from the nurse’s station. To ensure safety, clients are not permitted to have OTC medications in their rooms or possession.
Similarly, please do not bring any non-prescription supplements like vitamins or herbal or nutritional supplements. If these supplements are brought to the residence, they will be destroyed because we cannot verify their origin or safety. If you have a prescription from your doctor for a supplement to treat a known medical problem, please present your prescription and the supplement to the nurse at admission. Your supplement will be available as needed at the nurses’ station. To ensure safety, clients are not permitted to have supplements in their rooms or possession.
Families and clients will need to provide instructions to the admissions team on how you wish to pay for prescriptions, including providing a copy of any type of pharmacy card.
All clients, both self-pay and using insurance, are asked to establish an account with our preferred pharmacy:
