Background: FCI Marianna and its satellite camp were opened in 1988. It is a Sex Offender Management Program (SOMP) facility. In 2012, several dozen correctional officers filed lawsuits against FCI Marianna’s UNICOR facility seeking compensation for illnesses and resulting quality-of-life losses they say they suffered from exposure to toxic dust generated in the process of recycling computers, which have components containing lead, cadmium, beryllium, mercury, and possibly other toxic substances.
Housing: Inmates are housed in two-person cells. Inmates at the camp are housed in dormitories, which are divided into two-person cubicles.
Health Services: FCI Marianna provides medical sick call, emergency medical care, physical examinations, immunizations, dental care, and medication through the pharmacy (over-the-counter medications are available through the commissary). Mammograms, MRIs, and CT scans are performed at facilities in the local community. Emergency medical care is available 24 hours a day.
Psychology Services: FCI Marianna offers intake screenings, crisis intervention and individual and group counseling. Anger management and a Non-Residential Sex Offender Treatment Program (SOTP-NR) are also available. At the camp the STAGES Program is available for inmates with serious mental illness and personality disorders.

Commissary: Inmates can spend up to $360.00 per month in the commissary on their designated weekly shopping day. Over-the-counter (OTC) medications, telephone credits, and postage stamps do not count against the monthly spending limit. Funds are retained by the institution in a trust fund account, from which the inmate may withdraw money for personal spending in the institution commissary, family support, or other approved purposes. Accumulated institutional earnings and monies sent from outside are given to the inmate upon release or may be mailed home.
