Default Region 2 work release centers

Hi, does anyone have (had) a loved one in Lake City work release center or any other region 2 WRC? Just looking for some input on experiences your loved one has had there. Thanks!

My husband did a bunch of time at the Reality House center in Daytona but that is rehab/work release. We had a pretty decent experience there, but the only way to do work release there is to do the rehab program first.

Do they have to be at community custody level for the rehab like they they have to for WR?

You have to be community custody level just like with work release to go to the rehab programs at places like Reality House and Bridges (they have several around the state) but the rules are not the same as work release once you get there. There's no furloughs in rehab, you can't leave the facility unescorted, etc. However, the living conditions are a lot better and some rules are like work release - you can handle cash, use pay phones for your phone calls with no more phone list, etc. All in all, better places to be than a main unit even if you don't get furloughs. Plus you get treatment for any substance abuse issue that you have.
