Jail listings in the Seattle-metropolitan region
Jails, or adult detention centers, contain people that has been either accused or convicted of a crime.
Having a friend or family member arrested or detained in jail can have a very emotional impact on your life. Dealing with possible financial and social adjustments, as well as the loss of their presence, can be a very stressful feat to manage. Do your best to try to keep a balance of staying in the moment and planning ahead.
- Staying in the moment will help you to focus only on the events of today, for example do you need to register for an upcoming visit. Nurture yourself and try to relax.
- Planning in advance for visitation and budget (if you are financially impacted) will help you to remain more in the moment of each day, knowing that you've addressed what is ahead. For example do you have to get time off of work or excuse a child from school. The visitation process can be cold and restrictive, but knowing the rules and avoiding surprises can make the visitation process more relaxing and positive.
