ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA

What To Bring With You

Discovery Houses suggest you pack one months’ worth of clothing. We have on-site laundry facilities, so there’s no need to over-pack. Keep in mind the time of year you’ll be here, and the fact that you will be venturing indoors and outdoors every day. The average temperature in coastal Orange County is typically between 65-75 degrees, but because we are close to the ocean, temperatures can fluctuate quickly, so make sure to pack clothes for both warm and cool weather, as well as items to layer and take off over the course of the day.


For immediate help or answers to your questions, call 888-917-9516 now to speak confidentially with an admissions counselor.
