A regional drug rehabilitation center is currently being discussed among health officials, and Dominica’s new Health Minister Julius Timothy said the nature isle could be the ideal location.
Timothy told a press conference in the Ministry of Health that it is the right of every individual to take control of their health and many or the problems being placed upon government would be reduced.
“Drug abuse is a personal thing. Once you get into the drug abuse, society has to help you get out of it,” he said.
Timothy said solving the problems of drug abuse on the island needs a collaborative approach.
