Finding Health, Finding Hope


The Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction sent an e-mail to all of Ohio’s Jail Administrators encouraging them to adopt a policy that would enable family members to drop medications off to loved ones who are in jail to ensure continuity in care for inmates with chronic medical conditions, mental illness and/or addiction disorders.  NAMI Ohio took the lead on developing a sample policy because we believe that it has the potential to prevent some inmates from engaging in behavior that could endanger themselves or others and result in additional criminal charges.  If you think that such a policy would be useful in your respective communities, I urge you to contact your jail administrator(s) to urge them to adopt the model policy.  Please contact us at for policy forms and additional information.
