Default Blackwater CI (FL Geo Group)-cut off meds

Our brother just called and it was cut short due to count, so we didn't get the whole story.

He has PTSD and depression. His antidepressants were cut off due to his missing 5 doses in a month. He stated that the people who distribute the meds are supposed to be in the dorm at 6 or 6:15. They do not announce over an intercom, rather they stand in a doorway and call it out. He said that they were there at 5:45 yesterday. He needs his meds. Anyone else been through this?

My DH (not an inmate) is on antidepressants and I know what a mess he is without them. I can't imagine being locked up and going without...

I've seen instances of medications being stopped for missing pill line. He should go on sick call and discuss it.

Updating....
His wife and mom both made contact with staff. He is being scheduled to visit with the psych staff. There was a slight issue with classification since he was part of the emergency temp move due to the hurricane damage.
