A New York state senate panel is recommending more be done to recruit and train health care professionals who work with recovering addicts.

That's one of 11 recommendations included in a report issued Wednesday by the senate's task force on heroin and opioid addiction.

Other suggestions include more monitoring of opioid prescriptions and alternative pain medication such as medical marijuana.
