Thanks for sharing your info - just an FYI - when my son was at the halfway house (not Land Manor) there were some items which were not permitted.

Personal toiletries had to be alcohol free, ie., mouthwash, colognes, lotions, etc..

Personal medications not permitted. He wasn't even permitted the roll of tums. Allergy meds not allowed but the allergy drops were. When he got a horrible flu/cold bug I had to get permission to bring in meds and sign off at the main desk. He had to go there and sign for each dosage.

He could not have a personal manicure set OR the finger nail clippers.

He could have an alarm clock but not a radio alarm until after the orientee phase. Seems silly, I know.

Also, they do benefit from having either a phone card or a couple rolls of quarters so they can make calls the first couple of weeks.

Again, it's not the same halfway house but just FYI.

yeah. all items must alcohol free(except Spray Cologne,they told me i could send it).forget about finding a lotion though.just look or ask. u can find all alco free items.they are used to people needing "special" items.the nail clippers would be kept in the office with his name on it.i added a few more items(adult wipes,alarm clock,petroleum jelly,nose trimmer,qtips,mouthwash) and removed some as well(hand sanitizer,lotion,aftershave lotion,teeth cleaning tools,meds).another thing i did was search staffing agencies and places to eat that were within walking distance.it only takes 20min to walk a mile.most of all the places for him will be less than 2 miles.then i get a gift card for several of the resturants.i dont think that the HWH knows that you can reload these cards.ONLINE.so even if it says its a $10 gift card you can put more on it.you can track these cards as well. the prepaid visa i got him sends me text each morning with the balance..i will know when he needs something and when he is ok.thats perfect seeng as how we are so far apart.and there is a limit on cash.they dont like the guys to have cash.no more than $20.this is the great one,3 of the staffing agencies also have branches in our home town. so his info will be on file and can just be faxed over so he will already have a head start when he gets home.its all finaly coming together!ok so here is the revised list.
