Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I bring in medication for an inmate?

No over the counter medications will be accepted into the facility.
Do inmates have to pay for medical treatment?
A $10.00 clinical fee will be assessed for each visit to see a member of the medical staff.
Prescription costs will be assessed to the inmates at the price set by the pharmacy from which it was ordered.
