Did you know this about homeless shelters in the USA?

Shelters are run by non-profit organizations, and are directly linked up to neighboring drug and alcohol treatment centers.  This is to ensure that when a homeless person comes in, and is also struggling with addiction the shelter can provide them with free options for treatment.

Homelessness and drug addiction

Many people are struggling with drug addiction and homelessness within Puerto Rico; trying to find help while being homeless is a challenge, because there are not an abundance of homeless shelters or free treatment programs that can help. Any money that is gotten while homeless goes to support the addiction, and this is where the cycle never truly ends. Without the proper help, addicts will continue to go on like this and the situation may become worse.

Here is a list of the different Shelters in Puerto Rico. The list can be incomplete. If you need any information or referral with addiction please do not hesitate to contact one of our counselors at 1-800-304-2219.
