  • All money and valuables are available for withdrawal only between specified hours and by authorized personnel. 


  • In all cases, BBC is not responsible and will not be held financially liable for any damage, loss, or theft of Client belongings. The client assumes all associated risks and responsibilities.


  • All valuables will be returned to the client or his/her authorized designee upon discharge.


  • Upon admission, the Client Valuables form will be completed and signed by all appropriate individuals. This form will become a permanent part of the client record.


  • In the event a client's belongings are abandoned due to elopement and the client is discharged from the program, staff will secure client belongings on the discharge date.
