Unfortunately, there is nothing that someone from the outside can do to effectuate anything regarding the treatment of an inmate. The prison/jail staff is acting in the best interest of the inmate in keeping them safe by placing them in isolation for continual observation.
Subject: Furloughs

Sorry to report that there is always going be a cost of some kind. Even if you visit, the cost of travel and the money you might spend on the vending machines cost money. The calls cost money, the emails cost money, a handwritten letter costs at least a $0.55 cent stamp. It's a hard truth but someone is getting paid somewhere.

You save $45 per month!!

If money is no object, you might consider $75/wk for commissary and phone. In the federal system, they can only spend $69/month on phone and $315 on commissary + whatever money the emails are. It can become quite expensive so be careful...
