Do you honestly think its 80 GRAND a year? Well you're wrong!

The average cost in VA is 29-32k a year..

80k LOL!

As for the diversion centers its less, try to research before you comment and then use spell check...

Is this not a site where people who need info and want to share info go to? I only wonder why there are a few who come in here only to give opinions that make them seem as though they arent going through what the rest of us may be or have. Yes, our loved ones got into trouble and had to go to these facilities, but it doesnt make them any less of a loved one to us. Sure, some of you don't care and that's fine. Some of us though are trying to get information that is important to us and we really do not appreciate smart A remarks no matter how cute you think you're being. Good for you for not ever getting into any trouble- we are all very proud of you, however we do not care about your narrow minded opinions! Thank you though for wasting your time by posting comments no one needs or wants and for wasting our (my) time for having to read very unhelpful and useless information. If you do have information-because you seem to know it all, please do post all of it pertaining to these questions so we can all have that valuable info! Thanks :) have a great day!!

Its funny how people post ignorance. Ive been to white post and so you know its not for kids. You make it sound like juvenille detention. Adult males age 18 to whatever. Hell there were 60 year old men there. As far as helping you... its all in the mind set of the individual. In theory it was a good program, in action it probably could have been executed better. Its a prison road camp setting razor wire and all. It actually use to be a prison. For the people who are concerned with it doing any good... the combination of 6 months in the diversion center followed by a 30 day rehab center then followed by 18 months of after care ive turned my life around completely. People do change its just about how much they want to change.

How does visitation work for a spouse? Do you get more visits and are they contact visits? My hubby will be going there for the 5-6 months program straight from jail which he will have done alittle over 5months there.

I believe the visits are held on Sundays. One group of men (going by the last name alphabet) will have visits on the 1st and 3rd Sundays and the other group will have 2nd and 4th. I know the first group has visits at 1 p.m. on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month.

Thanks Kathy!
So im guessing from what u are saying..they only get 2 visits a month? Right now i can see him 1 day a week where he is now. And i was hoping u could tell me..does that mean since we are not married yet..and im not considered family,..i will still be able to visit? And do u happen to know if there is any contact? Hugs or hand holding or anything? And also phone calls..can they make phone calls daily? I really want to thank u for your help! Im just having a very tough time finding out any information about where he will be going.
Thanks again!

for people that want to know about the visits and phone calls and stuff. i just got out of there 3 months ago and here is some things that may help.

You can visit 2 times per month (but only after theyve been there at least a month). Depending on their last name ull visit either 1st and 3rd sunday of the month or 2nd and 4th. You can hug the person but u cant sit there and hold hands. Visits are up to 2 hours. As far as phone calls, they have access to the phones from like 11am to 9-10pm most days, but have to have money on the phone account pre-paid.
I dont understand why there isnt an official site for this place. There should be. At first i hated it, but it went by pretty quick. After the persons been there about 2-3 months it starts to fly by, so tell em to be strong. The worst part of that place was the food... absolutely disgusting, barely edible. So they let u get out 80 dollars every 2 weeks and then in the pods they have all these soda and candy machines, which people MUST use cuz thats the only real food in the building. So they make a fortune that way. When i was in there people had to borrow money and take out loans just to eat. it was crazy. Anyways hopefully this helps, also if u have a relative there, tell them to lay low! its EXTREMELY easy to get kicked out of there. I saw people get kicked out for losing a job, or gettin in a fight, havin an mp3 player and all kinds of shit.
why be so hateful

Honestly eveyone has made mistakes in their life. Any one of you who says I have never done anything wrong is #1 lying and #2 just not gotten caught. I would look at it this way. At least the people who agree to go into this program and trying to better their life. Yes they may have broken the law they may have made a mistake but they are trying to learn a better way of life to get out of the lifestyle that they were living that led them down the path they were on. There is no reason to be hateful. The person who asked this question wanted simply to know if it is a program that will help their family member to get their life on track.

my son was just transferred there, i honestly do not know anything about your facility. I just want my son to be treated fairly, some places are prejudice, some are trashy, some are respectful, and polite as can be provided the circumstances. Everyday is not a great day,but no day should be a bad day. Helping and not hendering, encouraging,and not putting down. Just a few thoughts. Also how long do they normally stay in these locations?

My son has been in and out of institutions since he was 16. He is now 28. I have been to every program, family therapy program out there trying to help him to be a better human being and I pray continually for him to become a better person. He has been given a chance with this diversion program to work, learn discipline, develop a work ethic and I pray this is the answer.
He has never worked more than 2 weeks at a time without going back to his criminal ways. I think he has become institutionalized and has no way of knowing how to navigate the world outside of an institution. I am praying this time he will succeed and learn the lessons he needs to finally succeed outside of prison. I love him but do not ever excuse his behavior.

My boyfriend is there. He said it's not all that nice of a place. He sleeps in a room with a lot of bunks in it. There are like 60 men in that room. He says their bathroom doesn't even have walls or doors separating the stalls and the showers are the same way and located directly across from the toilets. I'm not saying that they need a hotel or anything, but they should at least give them semi private rooms and bathrooms that offer some privacy. They charge them rent for it. Once he starts working, they will take out $450 for rent. He was unclear about if the $450 was for the whole five months or just each month. It can't cost that much to house and feed these men if they are all sleeping in one room.

LMAO!!! You can't live anywhere for $450 a month with food included.
Another case of I know that person and they deserve special treatment.
So sick of people thinking they dont have to earn things.

Been there for a year.. You will learn discipline and puntuality, it's hard but you will benefit from it, and you get work release after the detention program so you can send plenty money home to help out. If you have to do time, this is the place to do it cause your are actually bettering yourself to be a standup citizen in society no just sitting around rotten not giving back.. Plus we clean the highway and did work at state parks.
Thanks my son is either their or will be their on sunday I just wanted to know he is going to a ok place. And will be ok. so thanks I think your kind of comment is what people are looking for. I sure hope to hear from him soon.. THANK YOU I FEEL A LETTLE BETTER NOW.
