Springfield drug court to expand with $2 million federal grant
The Springfield Drug Court in partnership with BHN and UMass Medical School helps those struggling with substance use sustain long-term recovery and stay out of the criminal justice system through a new grant-funded program called MISSION-Springfield.
BHN Recovery Coach Michelle Jackson credits the program for round-the-clock support that helped her maintain sobriety after over 20 years of substance use.
“I am just beyond grateful. I feel like I owe my life to them. Through the drug court, I got a therapist. I got a job while I was in the program. I got a recovery coach. Then I became a recovery coach.”
