Columbia Correctional Institution


The Columbia Correctional Institution can be found in Lake City, Florida. There are roughly 1,430 male adult inmates housed at this level V facility. Their custody levels range from minimum-, medium, and closed custody. In this facility, jailed individuals have the opportunity to participate in a volunteer literacy program, acquire their General Education Development (GED) diploma or certificate, and attend academic classes for adult basic education. At this time, there are no PRIDE assignments or community service positions available at this location.

In spite of the fact that this facility does not provide any treatment programs for substance abuse, it does make it possible for convicts to participate in Alcoholics Anonymous meetings and a smoking cessation program known as Fresh Start. In addition, this facility does not prohibit inmates from attending religious services. It is possible to participate in religious services as well as religious education classes.

Everyone who wants to visit an inmate can do so, but first, they have to fill out an application to be a visitor, and then that application has to be granted. This is a process that might take a month to finish. The institution is open for visits on Saturdays and Sundays from 9 am to 3 pm.
