I was pleased to celebrate the opening of the Woburn Community Corrections Center this week. The new facility is criminal justice reform in action--no longer will community corrections offices only be available to clients at the time of probation, but they will now have access to them at the time of their arraignment. This means we are getting people the treatment they need to get back on their feet much faster. This new model and facility serve to reduce recidivism, foster reintegration, and address the escalating opioid epidemic.
