How Common Is Drug and Alcohol Abuse In Puerto Rico?
Unfortunately, the addiction crisis in Puerto Rico is in a critical state. Experts estimate that in 2013, close to 60,000 people on this island misused substances on a regular basis. They may have injected the substances into their veins, abusing substances such as fentanyl and heroin.
Furthermore, because of its ideal geographical location in proximity to the United States, Puerto Rico is often a transfer point that drug cartels use to transport both ingoing and outgoing goods.
Sadly, as a result, heroin, fentanyl, and tranquilizer addiction are on the rise. Moreover, because of the large number of people who inject these substances, Puerto Rico has an extremely high rate of HIV and AIDS. Close to 40% of those infected with these diseases may have contracted them because of intravenous drug use.
There are incredibly high rates of drug addiction on this beautiful island, but there is still help at hand. When those from Puerto Rico seek treatment at BoardPrep Recovery Center, they find lasting help and support from experts in addressing these challenging conditions. If you’re struggling with drugs or alcohol, please contact our treatment center today at 866.796.4720.
