Sheriff Wants More Treatment Opportunities

Hampden County Sheriff Nick Cocchi is  pursuing a new treatment option for drug addicts.  

Cocchi is pursuing  partnerships and funding to be able to order involuntary civil  commitments for drug abusers.  

Most of the facilities that accept civil  commitments are in the eastern part of Massachusetts. 

 Cocchi says the  state would have to approve funding for a new commitment center in  Hampden County.
