Rehabs near Christiansted
The United States Virgin Islands offer American tourists a tropical experience without traveling outside of the states. Christiansted, the largest town of St. Croix, struggles with the high rates of substance abuse and drug trafficking. Some parts of the population suffer from drug abuse and injecting drugs into their bodies with needles. Furthermore, the sharing of dirty needles does not only contribute to higher drug abuse numbers, it contributes to increases in Hepatitis A and HIV/AIDS. Such health risks have plagued some of the island who use needles, with HIV numbers rising in such populations. Alcohol abuse tends to be more common in some male populations in Christiansted, as crack use occurs more in some female populations. Fortunately, there is help as individuals can choose to travel to find the treatment needed to recover.
