An Evidence-based Model of Seamless Reentry for Reentering Individuals with Substance Abuse Needs

WHEN: August 29, 2012

This webinar presents an evidence-based model for reentering offenders with substance abuse needs. The model uses Motivational Interviewing and addresses the complexity of service needs, including housing, employment, AOD, mental health, and the challenges of navigating between criminal justice and mental health systems to achieve success.

Program data will be shared from a partnership between CDCR and Options Recovery Services in Berkeley, California over the past six years. Participants will hear firsthand from a successful reentering graduate who was trained as a peer mentor at Solano State prison to understand the challenges from a reentering person’s point of view.
