Question WSP/ Why hasn't Ben seen a counselor?

I have to wonder why my husband who has been at Wasco since March hasn't been seen by his counselor? I called records and they told me who his counselor is, yet Ben told me in a letter, he doesn't know who his counselor is. Why is that? I got the information I needed from records, and who his counselor is. But I have to ask is it this slow in reception before he see's someone? As I said in other posts, he hurt his back in County Jail here in SLO county, they gave him medications to help, but he says in his letter he is still having issues with his back, and that makes me concerned. Does anyone know who else I can contact at Wasco about my husbands condition? Seems he got better care in the county jail then that of this reception at Wasco. Back pain is a no go for anyone. Any help with this would be much appreciated. Mary

I can't speak on Wasco, but I've seen many folks in CDC facilities sit in reception awaiting classification/housing for months on end. As best I can tell, there isn't a timeline they're required to abide by.

He should be able to send requests out to medical for his backpain. I won't make promises about him getting care, but the requests are important if for nothing else than documentation that he tried.

Hopefully someone familiar with Wasco can add to this.

Some guys stay there as long as 9 months-- the counselors are assigned alot of cases- my babe is in Waco going on a month doesn't need to see a counselor he is considered mainline because he is a layover was only suppose to be there 2 days now its a month- records will give you counselors. Name and ext. Youshould call and tellthem about his medical needs- pushthe issue- sometimes we can get info before the boys do

Wasco is the worst! They don't give AF about the inmates or their condition. My husband has been stuck in reception there since October �� he was classified at the end of November. I have spoke to his counselor several times and each time he gives me a different excuse. I don't understand why TF it's taking so long???Smh, I spoke to a few girls who said their man waited up to a year in Wasco.
