Boston Deals With Drug Addicts

Boston is looking to address the  growing problem of drug addicts loitering at Massachusetts Avenue and  Melnea Cass Boulevard.  

The city moved many social services to the area  from Long Island a few years back.  

The result has been many homeless  drug addicts congregating in the neighborhood, which is often called the  Methadone Mile.  

City officials are planning to create a barracks like  tent behind an area shelter to help steer the homeless into treatment.
