Does anyone know about medical holds?
« on: September 16, 2015, 08:46:59 AM »
My L/O has been approved to go to an ATC except he has a medical hold. Not sure if it is for refusing meds he does not need or what. Has anyone dealt with this? He is not sure what to do.Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thank you

I would tell him to put in a request to speak to his counselor. Depending on the medication and what it's for I would then tell him to put in a request for Healthcare or to speak to the psychologist

Thanks. He has to go to HCU every day to turn it down and psychologist is on a video call from California or somewhere.

 Was he on medication before he went in?  They usually won't approve them to ATC if they have medical issues.

Adult Transition Centers, which is work release i'm pretty sure.

Good to know they don't often release those with medical issues to work release. I know my man was hoping for this, but with his medical stuff I highly doubt it will happen.

They told him he did not have to go to health care refuse it any more, then came a few days later  and told him hold has been lifted! Hope he can go to ATC now!
