Unhappy In reception, when can he call? Should I visit?

Hi everyone,

I'm completely new to this. I've never had a loved one go to prison or experienced anything like this. But my current boyfriend is now in prison for two years and I'm lost. I knew he was in some trouble when I met him, but we weren't expecting this and it kind of just hit us both out of no where. When he was in the county jail he could call me multiple times a day and I got to visit him twice a week, but he's now been moved and it says online that he's in a corrections reception. I've been reading some things and it says he could be there for 30-90 days? Is that true?? Also, I haven't received a call since I last visited a week ago, Do anyone have any idea when I could hear from him next??? The visits at reception are only twice a month, but I don't know how to even figure the visiting out because I feel like I should talk to him first. I'm just worried and I feel like I don't know anything. Will he ever get to call in reception? Will he forget about me?

I can't answer for Ohio, but others familiar with Ohio policy/procedure will be along to help answer your specific questions.

Have you set your phone up for inmate calls and/or does he have money on his books for phone calls / writing materials?

You can already write to him...if you haven't done so, write him today!

Address the envelope:
His name & DOC #
Facility name
address
zip code

Yes, it must have a return address, no address label/sticker.

Here is a list of Ohio facilities + info:
