Default Riverbend Facility?

Well I have been up all night not knowing where my man is at? He called and told me that he is being transferred but didn't know where. I kept looking up on the GDOC but we all know they don't update it in real time. So, this morning I called them. Hes at Riverbend Facility. Does anyone know of this prison? Is it a state prison? What kind of facility is it? Thanks for any information.

Thanks. My man says its alot better than the state prison he was in. He says they treat them so much better. Only thing he complain about is the prices for their store are much higher but since hes fed three times a day and quality is better he doesnt eat as much out of their store. But hoping this is hes last prison to go to. I will be visiting this summer sometime.

That is good news to hear, I did get to speak with my son counselor yesterday and she said for sure he will phone me today. Not sure how faraway it is for me to drive coming from valdosta, ga but I will make the drive regardless. How many different prisons has your man been in, I hope my son stay there until he come home. Thanks for that information on riverbend.

It makes no sense to me either. I think they don't want them getting comfortable or in a routine to be honest. Tyreen has been at each prison 9 months to a year at each one.

Hi Tyreens wifey, just checking in on you. How are you? I know you are hanging in there. Have you spoken with hubby, I hope so and how is he coping? I just recieved papers to fill out for visit with son, I sure do miss him and want to see him so bad. I just want this nightmare to go away. Take care of yourself and we will talk soon.

Hi Tyreens_wifey and Mydearestson, how are you ladies doing? I hope all is well with you as well as your hubby and you son. Well I thought I was out here alone. My fiancee was transferred to Riverbend at the end of last year. He likes it some days and others he does not. It depends who is on staff. I have to agree with him on some issues. There are some officers there that have a heart and realize that they are in there for a reason but they are still human beings then there's some that think because they have a little bit of authority over them they can talk to them and treat them any kind of way. My fiancee said the food definitely is much better than the other prison he was at. The officers even eat in the dining hall with them. They eat the same food as them. The visitation is pretty good. I just hate having to take off my shoes and built so most of the time I just make sure I wear something that doesn't require me to wear it. Its almost like the want to strip search us before we can visit. The other prison he was at I only had to take my pockets out and go thru the metal detector. This prison seems to be more secured...I have to tell you though, the best day to go to visitation is Saturday because the food runs out fast. You wouldn't think it would because the prices are so high, but anything to feed my man and to see him happy for a few hours at least. If you can get there early that would be great because it fills up fast, and the visitation room isn't very big at all. The earlier you get there the faster your process will be, but the later you get there it seems like the officers slow down and take forever. Well I hope I've given you both a little enlightenment of the facility as a whole. God bless both of you as well as your husband and your son. I will pray for you both as well as them. Hope to talk with you soon and maybe we can share what we learn about the facility as a whole together.

MRS504, Thank you so much for thinking of us, it gives me great relief to know others care. I just sent out papers today at riverbend for approval for visitation. I cannot wait to see my son, I miss him so much he is my baby boy. I do have concerns with him he was born with tumors on his tongue and require surgery to remove them they always comes back. He has been going through surgery since the age of 6months old. The last time I saw him they were coming back and that was several months Back before he was shipped off. How are you doing? It sound as if riverbend may be a better facility than others I have heard of, nice to know food is much better their. Do you know how long it take to get approval once they recieve paperwork? I hope not long but understand how the system work at there own pace. Take care and God bless you and will keep you in my prayer's.

All I know is that it is a private facility and there doesn't seem to be good control by the guards. SInce my son has been there a man had boilling water thrown on him, several stabbings and last week a murder. Open dorm. You can send a package through the access website throuigh tomorrow at 4:00.

I heard about the death of inmate and it scares the living hell out of me plus an open dorm how troublesome is that. I pray for my son each and every day to keep him well.

Hi Mrs504, hope all is well with you, I hear a lot of crazy things are going on at riverbend, killing, stabbing amongst other violent acts. Rumor said they shut it down just rumors not sure if true or not. I do know my son never get letters I have sent him and it drives me crazy knowing I sent letters yet they do not give to him. I hate all this prison crap it really stresses me out. I still get angry at times and have to pull my self together. Hang in there my new friend.

Can you tell me about the visitation? What days is it? How long are the visits? Are they contact visits? Do you stay in one room the whole time? Please any and every bit of info would help me.

My husband is in Riverbend and the visit rotato monthly. Like is your person has visit in Nov on Sundays he will have visit in Dec on Sat and so on. My husband don't like it he said its very unstaff and its hard for new people to get work detail or in any classes because the classes are so full and its not enough techers. The food is good and they feed the inmate well, but store is higher and this is a private prison.
