Addiction is a tireless foe. It causes so many problems in Massachusetts and across our country and generates so many sad headlines, it’s all too tempting to throw up our hands in despair. But we don’t have to. Because there is reason for hope.
We’re seeing innovative programs with new approaches that are bringing renewed optimism to a growing number of people in the Bay State. The Innovations Now initiative recognizes innovators and leaders across different sectors addressing addiction--prevention, treatment, recovery, child welfare, criminal justice, law enforcement and health professionals-the leaders who are creating solutions and driving change.
