Centro Journal Coverage of Drug Addict "Exportation"

Many people this week read or heard the shocking story of Puerto Rican drug addicts who are sent from the island to unofficial “rehab” facilities in Chicago. Sadly, this has been happening for some time, and an article describing and analyzing the practice was featured in the Fall 2012 issue of CENTRO: Journal of the Center for Puerto Rican Studies.

As always, the CENTRO Journal strives to be at the cutting edge of Puerto Rican Studies, and this is the latest example of the academic research published in the journal’s relevance to ongoing events in the lives of Puerto Ricans. Researchers can find Torruella’s article and others via several academic databases. Back issues and subscriptions are available in the Centro Store
