There are many alternatives for inmates with personal problems who desire to correct them. These options include participation in the Drug Abuse Program, Alcoholic Anonymous, Self-Image groups and other voluntary groups. In addition, professional staff is available as resources who are trained in the various social science fields. Inmate participation in these activities will be encouraged upon staff’s assessment of inmate needs, but participation in such activities is voluntary. Staff of each unit is available for informal counseling sessions as well as formal group counseling activities.
At FCI Tallahassee, we encourage you to be tobacco free. However, we recognize that some inmates arriving at this facility who are accustomed to smoking or using chewing tobacco may experience difficulty with the abrupt discontinuation of these products. The Psychology Department offers a Smoking Cessation Program which emphasizes healthy living, exercise and stress management. For more information, please submit a cop-out to Psychology.
