Yes, they can receive a family photo. No, they cannot receive a Hallmark card... BUT, the prisons DO accept Greeting Cards from InmateAid that are delivered on a jail-approved postcard. Choose from 100s.

Jails do not offer access to methadone and buprenorphine, instead, they require inmates to go through forced withdrawal. Although rare, there are jails and prisons around the country that offer methadone and buprenorphine. The state of Rhode Island has offered both medications to inmates since 2016. For inmates that have opioid use disorder (OUD) there is evidence that suggests that methadone maintenance treatment (MMT) during incarceration can reduce inmates’ risks of overdose and other short-term adverse outcomes after release, but few jails and prisons offer it.  Prisoners who received

I was incarcerated at FCI Miami Camp (from 2006 through 2011) and I can attest first-hand that the staff there was very helpful.
