Planned 'Recovery' School Aims To Help Students Battling Drug Addiction

High school students battling drug addiction are getting some support from some state lawmakers for a planned recovery school in the southeastern part of the state.

State Sen. John Keenan of Quincy said students don't always get the support they need after drug treatment.

"They are fortunate enough to get some treatment, they go into some programs and then when they're done, they go back to the same high school where they were, the same group of friends, and in a lot of cases, that's where the problem basically started," Keenan said.

Rockland, Raynham, Bridgewater and Brockton are being considered for the school, with a goal of opening sometime next year.

This program aired on March 14, 2011. The audio for this program is not available.
