The dress code was established to promote a sense of responsibility and positive self-image in our patients. We believe that when you improve your appearance, you feel better about yourself and are more confident.
When preparing for inpatient treatment, please keep in mind that there are certain items not allowed on site. The following items are considered contraband and must be kept in storage or sent home with family/friends:
For health, infection control and safety reasons body piercing is strictly forbidden at Cedar Ridge.
No body piercing is allowed at Cedar Ridge. All patients must remove existing piercing during the admission process. Cedar Ridge does allow the use of approved plastic “spacers” to keep piercing holes from closing. Patients are not allowed to use spacers that have metal in them, or “substitute” spacers that do not represent the original intent of the spacers. It is the sole responsibility of the patient and his or her family to produce the certified and approved spacers. Spacers can be purchased at most piercing studios. The policy exists for the safety of all patients and their peers related to the potential of impulsive, unsafe behaviors with sharp metal objects.
No jewelry is allowed at Cedar Ridge. All patients must remove all existing jewelry including rings, bracelets (of any kind), watches, necklaces, etc. Patients are to remove all jewelry during the admission process and return the jewelry to family members to be taken home; Cedar Ridge is not responsible for jewelry brought into the facility.
