Routine work assignments are available to prisoners. Available programs consist of Michigan sex offender programming (MSOP), Thinking for a Change (T4C), Violence Prevention programming (VPP), Batterer Intervention program (Bridges), and Phase II substance abuse programming.

Prisoners are provided on-site routine medical, dental and Outpatient Mental Health care. Serious problems are treated at the department's Duane L. Waters Health Care in Jackson and emergencies are referred to a local hospital.


Security
The facility is surrounded by three fences with rolls of razor wire on the side and top of the outside fence. The fence area is also monitored by a series of electronic devices and the perimeter is patrolled by armed staff. Security was further enhanced in 1997 by the addition of two gun towers.
