Puerto Rico Rehabs
In the beautiful Caribbean rests the enchanting Virgin Islands. Officially known as the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the land is only 1,000 miles from Miami. People worldwide visit Puerto Rico to enjoy its tasty rum and 270 miles of breathtaking beaches. It is best known for its delicious food, fantastic music, and colorful parties. Unfortunately, though the island is considered a paradise, it has led to high drug abuse rates. Puerto Rico's current economic crisis has left its citizens battling a drug epidemic virtually alone. The island's approximately $74 billion public health debt has left it with little funds to support its residents. Experts estimate that over 8% of the population has a history of illicit drug use. Their biggest problem seems to be heroin. According to the Department of Justice, almost 20% of drug charges in the commonwealth are for heroin. Puerto Rico's drug crisis is disheartening, but there is hope. Fortunately, there are still several addiction treatment centers ready to help the island's citizens. Check out some local options.
