While in jail

King County offers medical and behavioral health services for adults in jail. People in custody have access to many other programs and services as well. Our goal is to support personal, educational, and vocational development opportunities which help prepare individuals for a return to the community. Other activities include religious services, drug and alcohol counseling, recreation, and more. Specific programs are subject to change based on the availability of volunteers and contractors.

Health services

Adults in jail receive medical and behavioral health treatment through Jail Health Services, a division of Public Health — Seattle & King County. If you have concerns about a person's health or medications while they are in custody, contact Jail Health at:

You must provide the following information:

  • The person's name
  • The person's booking number
  • Your contact information
  • What your concern is

To find a booking number for an adult in jail, please use the Subject Lookup Tool.

Release planning is available for people who need to connect with behavioral health or medical services when they leave jail.

After release

The Department of Community and Human Services (DCHS) offers programs, services, and resources to help adults returning to the community after leaving detention. These include:

  • Veteran services
  • Mental and behavioral health
  • Substance Abuse
  • Housing and homelessness
  • Developmental disability supports
  • Legal aid 

DCHS offers Diversion and Reentry Services to help people with behavioral health issues avoid jail and hospital visits.
