:( Dave will leave on Monday morning at 5:00 for the Diagnostic Center. I have read on the ADC website that they usually stay a week. They let us have a contact visit today at Lonoke County. All of the people have been so nice to us there. I am very worried about how we will both be treated at the prison that he is assigned to......but.....I can take anything as long as I can see him every once in a while. I am planning on coming to the dinner to discuss telephone charges. I am very upset that we are having to pay so much more than those around us in order to talk with out loved ones!!!:angry: I am looking forward to meeting you guys! I have really learned a lot from this site!!!!

God bless you all and your families!

It can take at least up to a month before they are assigned a home base.

Yeah, it really just varies - no definite time. I think it took about 2 1/2 weeks for my fiance to get transferred to his unit.

Thanks, girls!! I really appreciate the info. In your opinion, what is the best unit to go to? Dave is thinking maybe Tucker or Cummins........what do you think?????

I'm not exactly sure what the "best" unit is - my fiance was at Cummins for a year and it was alright except for the fact that they have slim to none rehabilitative programs there. But visits were pretty good, and he did okay there.

Some don't leave if they have physical or mental issues.

My boyfriend went to Diagnostics this morning, and I called up there to see when he would get his parent assignment, and they told me 4 days. So I'm going to call again next week, and keep up with his status on VineLINK.
