The inmates housed at FL DOC - Bridges of Lake City located at 1099 NW Dot Gln in Lake City, FL are placed according to their custody level (determined by a number of factors including the past criminal history and the length of their sentence). There are ample educational and vocational training programs for all inmates, especially ones that show a willingness to learn new things that will prepare them for a better life when they are released. The mission is to promote and prepare the offender to leave in better shape than when they arrived, giving them the best chance to never come back and thus lower the state's recidivism rate.

The Lake City Bridge Community Release Center has program beds for 152 male community release from a FL DOC prison under the direction of Willie Dixon.

Program Description

The Lake City Bridge Community Release Center gives male inmates an opportunity to get their lives back on track. The foundation of the program is the Therapeutic Community Concepts, which are essential to maintaining a drug-free lifestyle in social contexts. With clinical supervision ,this peer-led, peer-driven environment encourages the men to become active participants in their recovery.

The men in the Community Release program men are gainfully employed during the day and may choose to participate in education, vocation and substance abuse treatment courses on days off or at night after work. Community Release inmates are required to pay subsistence for room and board which saves taxpayers money. Inmates also make court-ordered payments, send money home for family support and are required to set money aside for savings upon their release.

Our substance abuse treatment and value-added services teach problem solving, critical thinking, conflict resolution and recovery maintenance skills. The program offerings at each facility vary to best meet the needs of the persons served.
