Reception and Medical Center Florida

Reception and Medical Center

The Reception and Medical Center is located in Lake Butler Florida, part of Union county.  This facility is responsible for both the medical treatment of offenders and the initial classification and processing of offenders.  The facility is actually comprised of two separate buildings, known as the Main unit, and the West unit.  The Main unit can house about 1,500 adult male inmates while the West unit can house approximately 1,150 adult male inmates.  The Main unit is considered a level VI facility and the West unit is a level IV facility.

Both units offer inmates adult basic education courses and a chance for inmates to earn their GED.  Vocational and substance abuse treatment programs offered are scarce, as many of the inmates are just processed through or stay here temporarily.  All inmates who are at the institution for initial classification and processing are given a substance abuse assessment where it will then be determined if they require any treatment.
