Options is a healing arts journal, published by Chain Gang Apothecary. The mission of the publication is to promote a healing arts culture within American prisons. Through mail and phone correspondence, we aim to publish perspectives from both inside and outside prison to expand prisoners’ access to truly healing foods and food culture. In line with this mission, we also work to persuade prison management to embrace the ethos and economics of wellness by accommodating prisoners’ efforts to heal themselves.

We send new issues of “Options” out, free of charge, to all subscribers. Subscribe on behalf of a prisoner you know, or for yourself. If you are able, please consider donating in order to keep this project going, and to offset printing and shipping costs.
