Sarah Robertson for the Daily Hampshire Gazette writes:

"Thanks to an anonymous donor, the Northampton Recovery Center, a peer-driven support group for drug abuse victims run by the Northwestern district attorney’s office, moved to a new site Monday and will soon expand its services and hours of operation.

After operating out of Edwards Church for the last 18 months, the Recovery Center now has its own space at 2 Gleason Plaza."
