Please refer to the IDOC visitation page to find the most current information regarding visits.
Requests for general in-person legal visits between attorneys and Incarcerated Individuals must be made to the facility where the Incarcerated Individuals is housed. Attorney/Incarcerated Individuals visit requests are being scheduled and will continue as long as it is safe to do so on a facility-by-facility basis. Based on the conditions of each facility, they are subject to being postponed or rescheduled. A reliable alternative to an in-person attorney/Incarcerated Individuals visit is to schedule a confidential phone call. Incarcerated Individuals must have the attorney's phone number added to their approved telephone list. All calls are to be 'collect calls' unless the Incarcerated Individuals utilizes prepaid minutes.
*Visitation for offenders at the Reception Diagnostic Center (RDC) is limited to legal representatives and clergy only and is arranged on a case-by-case basis. Offenders are not allowed visits from friends and family while at RDC, however they may receive mail correspondence. Mail must be addressed to the offender, with his DOC number included, on the outside of the envelope, and sent to the facility’s address listed in the facility overview section.
- There are no volunteer opportunities available currently. We are always in need of volunteers at our neighboring facilities: Plainfield Correctional Facility and Heritage Trail Correctional Facility.

About Reception Diagnostic Center:
The Reception Diagnostic Center (RDC) is a maximum-security intake facility for adult males sentenced to the Indiana Department of Correction. All adult males are received at RDC, classified, and transferred to long-term facilities. The facility was completed in two phases in 1971 and 1993 and has a capacity of more than 600 incarcerated individuals. During intake, incarcerated individuals are seen by multiple divisions throughout DOC for assessments, including for their physical and emotional health, addiction recovery services, educational and work opportunities, and other needs, which help determine which of the state’s facilities best meet their needs.
