U.S. Virgin Islands Rehabs
In the beautiful Caribbean and only 112 miles from Puerto Rico floats the Virgin Islands. The island is an unincorporated territory of the United States consisting of 50 islands and cays. The archipelago has some of the most stunning waters and white beaches in the world. Its inlets and bays make the Virgin Islands a popular vacation destination for tourists around the world. Unfortunately, behind all the archipelagos beauty, it's locals are battling a severe drug crisis. Drug trafficking is a major problem in the U.S. territory. Due to the island's proximity to Puerto Rico and Miami, its ports are used to transport drugs into the United States. Experts believe that more than 100 grams of Cocaine per person travel through the island. The constant exposure to drug trafficking has left the Virgin Islands sick with high crime rates and addiction. Fortunately, there is hope. The archipelago has several addiction treatment centers prepared to help. Check out some local options.
