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 methadone maintenance...

Who "told him this"? For instance, having a pacemaker would not prohibit you from going to federal prison, because they have medical facilities, but we are not sure about SRCCC, but we would doubt that he doesn't have to go in. If it is possible, this would depend on the severity of the crime, the possible danger to the community, and the length of the sentence.

The worse thing you can do is get sick in prison. Things don't happen at the speed they do on the outside. You can call the facility and inquire. We recommend using your most humble and polite version of yourself when you do. Making a bad impression by demanding things for your inmate will cause him more harm than good.

Yes, All of the ASPC facilities provide adequate dental care for all inmates. This is basic dental work, nothing that requires a specialist. For instance, in federal, the dentist would pull a bad tooth before trying to save it with a filling. I'm sure that is not the norm but this is what i witnessed.

Yes, they do in most facilities. The screening of the inmate during intake gives the staff an idea of who needs it and who doesn't. The ones that do, are designated to facilities with the programs they need.

You must call the facility and start with the unit team secretary. If that goes nowhere, ask for the counselor or the case manager. They will definitely help you get peace of mind.

We would suggest calling the facility and asking to speak with a lieutenant or counselor to "ask politely and respectfully" if they are aware of the medication your husband must remain on. Using a very humble tone, seek out your information and you will easily get there. Caution, don't "demand" anything, ask nicely, use please and thank you. They are human beings with feelings, they will want to help you.

Not necessarily. But if you are in contact with your inmate and haven't heard from them and suspect something, you should DEFINITELY call the facility and ask to speak to the counselor or unit team secretary. They will tell you if your inmate has become ill.

The prisons get a bad rap as it relates to care and compassion. They give the minimum requisite attention, mindful that it's not the top tier care, but it is realistic and humane considering it is paid for by the government. Comparing it to the food, which most inmates would complain about, has the nutritional value but lacks flavor. They are getting enough to sustain them but very little extras.
