“These law enforcement organizations have valuable experience in providing treatment to individuals looking to get back on their feet and work beyond their addiction,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “We look forward to seeing them sustain the progress they are making in their communities, providing a powerful positive impact to those in need of recovery services.”
