Physical and Personal Property Searches

To maintain the safety of our clients and staff, RRCOOC may search new admissions and existing clients for items prohibited by the program. Rooms are inspected at random and when there is suspicion of contraband. Refusing a search or room inspection may result in a referral to another treatment setting. Items that are banned from RRCOOC include:

  • Controlled Substances
  • Alcohol
  • Vaporizers (as we cannot differentiate nicotine from cannabis liquids)
  • Weapons
  • Drug paraphernalia
  • Pornography

If an item is not on the what to bring list, it will not be allowed.

RRCOOC will provide Tobacco Limited Services using a harm reduction approach. This will allow eligible clients to have limited ability to smoke cigarettes utilizing scheduled nicotine dosing administrations (NDAs). These NDAs will be part of a standardized cigarette tapering protocol.

Thank you for choosing RRCOOC as the place to start again. We look forward to encouraging and guiding you in your early days of recovery. If you have additional questions or concerns about your stay here, please reach out to our admissions department at (845) 209-3505.
