    I have an inquiry. I was meeting today, 9/17/18 , work my counselor. We were discussing loneliness. She made a suggestion that I try contacting Vinland and see if there are any head injury support groups in Hutchinson, MN or the surrounding area. I sustained a TBI in 1991.
    Thank you,

    What can’t you bring for admission (phone , protein shakes, etc.)

    • Molly Gilbert December 5, 2018 Reply

      Hi Derek, you can bring a phone, but will have to hand it over to be locked up while you are here. It’s helpful if you need to obtain a tel # or address that you can gain monitored access while here. Protein powders aren’t allowed as well as any knives/weapons, illegal drugs or razors. If you do bring a razor, it would be locked up between uses. Bring your toiletries, & if you smoke, enough cigarettes to last a week – we go to a Holiday store on the weekends but no Target runs, etc., so bring what you need to be in treatment, not what you would need to move into a new appt. Just the bare minimums. Shoes/jacket/boots/gloves if you like to be out in nature, as we have 180 acres to explore. We have washers/dryers here so just a week’s worth of clothing should do. Bring an MP3 payer & your music if you like, but nothing so other clients can hear it – bring yr headphones. If you have a special pillow or blanket you like, bring that – whatever you need to feel comfortable. Otherwise call Admissions at 763. 479.2555 & they can detail more for you if needed.

    My grandson is going to be checking into your facility today or tomorrow. I want to know what is the best gift/support I can give to him this Christmas.

    • Molly Gilbert December 17, 2018 Reply

      Hi Alyson,

      Treats are always welcome that he can share with others. Games like chess, cards or checkers that he can play with others. Personal music, like an MP3 with headphones – but nothing that has a camera or phone attached to it. Otherwise the usual comforts of home are always nice: wool socks, hats, gloves/mittens, maybe a favorite, comfy blanket. Then you could really surprise and support him by going to AlAnon! Tip: Be sure to go at least 6 times to the same meeting before deciding whether you like it or not! ;^)

      Thanks for asking!
