Seminar focuses on drug treatment

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – There are many people in our state battling drug addiction, but not all of them know what kind of help is available to them.

That’s why Experience Wellness Centers offered a seminar Wednesday night to educate the public on what’s available.

Experience Wellness Centers and Crossroads Agency provides addiction treatment services. Experts say there are medications that prevent you from craving drugs without suffering withdrawl but even that is just a start.

“To me, the medication alone is a band-aid. Until you can get at the source of the problem and develop plans to go forward and treat the addiction, I think it’s like putting a band aid on it,” said George Collins, with the Experience Wellness Center.

Addicts in recovery were on hand at the event to talk about their experiences.
