At the United Recovery Project, we believe that attire sends a strong message about attitude. As such, we have designed our dress code to promote respect, professionalism, discipline, and dignity. Our clientele and staff attires should never be a source of disruption to treatment.
The only purpose of the dress code is to promote success during treatment and it is not intended to be punitive whatsoever.
Clients should avoid clothing with printed graphics. Any clothing with inappropriate or offensive images, statements, or themes is not permitted. For instance, clothing that advertises drugs or violence is prohibited.
Size and Fit of Clothing
Clothes should be appropriately sized, meaning, you should avoid oversized baggy and undersized tight clothing.
Furthermore, shorts should not be overly short. As a rule of thumb, shorts must reach either past a finger length from one’s hips or past the mid-thigh, whichever is longer.
See-through clothing, especially if it makes undergarments visible, is not permitted. Furthermore, sleepwear, such as pajamas, is not to be worn outside of the bedroom.
In general, clothing should always be covering the area from the shoulders to the waist.
When indoors, clients are not permitted to wear headgear such as hats, sunglasses or other headwear. On a similar note, clients are not permitted to wear hoodies over their heads while indoors.
Footwear must always be worn. When clients are partaking in physical exercise, they must wear a pair of sneakers. Clients are not permitted to participate in physical exercise with flip-flops or barefoot. The only exceptions to this rule are when clients are playing volleyball, yoga, or while in pool areas.
Pool Area Exceptions
All clients and staff members are to wear shirts and footwear unless in the pool area, in which case, clients may take off shirts and footwear.
