WORCESTER — The adult Buyer Diversion Treatment Alternative program, focused on opioid addiction recovery, celebrated its first four graduates Friday morning at the Everyday Miracles Peer Recovery Center on Pleasant Street.
The program, a partnership between the recovery center, Worcester Police Department and District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr.’s office, offers people facing arrest for drug use a chance to avoid jail and work on their recovery with counselors at the Everyday Miracles program.
“This is our first graduation,” Mr. Early said. “What happens here, when we get someone who is in a situation where they are about to get arrested for heroin possession or opioids possession, we give them an option.”
