As part of National Recovery Month (September), Options Recovery Services invites you to a special screening of The Return (Peabody finalist; Tribeca Film Festival Selection; Best Bay Area Documentary, SF International Film Festival, 2016). Q&A with Bilal Chatman, the star of The Return to follow the screening.

The Return examines the aftermath of Prop. 36 — the 2012 voter initiative which amended California’s “Three Strikes” law, one of the harshest criminal sentencing policies in the U.S. Through the eyes of those on the front lines — prisoners suddenly freed, families turned upside down, reentry providers helping navigate complex transitions, and attorneys and judges wrestling with an untested law — this award winning documentary asks the question: At a moment of reckoning on mass incarceration, what can California’s experiment teach the nation? Every person, and every nation, deserves a second chance.

Options Recovery Services provides year-long substance abuse disorder and mental health treatment to over 1,000 clients each year, regardless of their ability to pay. Through its Offender Mentor Certification Program, Options played a lead role in developing and implementing California’s first in-custody counselor training program. Options helps candidates re-enter the community by arranging post-release assistance including housing and connecting graduates with internships.
