Default Getting out of IPP?

My husband is in the IPP (Inmate Placement Program) in a county jail right now. It wasn't so bad at first, he had things to do to keep busy and we figured he'd be out soon so the long distance was okay for then too.

His parole hearing in April said 8 more years. So, now the county he's at won't let him do anything. All their programs are for those with 3 years or less. I can't take 8 years of this type of visiting either... 3 hours driving for one hour together? And it's supposed to be a barrier visit... but we got lucky and got one contact one approved Then someone noticed he wasn't supposed to have them, again only because of the 3 year thing. No other reason for the restriction.

Anyway, any ideas on how to get him back to Draper or Gunnision? He'd prefer Gunnison because he wants to do the Strive program, but Draper will work too.

Right now he's trying to get transfered for mental health - which really is an issue when he can't do anything. He has major anxiety problems and sometimes depression as well. When he is busy it's not really a concern for him - but they won't let him do anything because he has more than 3 years left.

The physician's assistant that saw him told him if he wanted mental health access they'd stick him in a cell naked and drug him till he felt better, then just put him right back where he is now. Then told him to think about it and he'd ask next week if he still felt like he needed mental health access. The doc also refused to renew his anti-anxiety/anti-depression medication he had been on for 3 years before he stopped taking it last year.
