I am astonished that Florida isn't on the map for part of the top counties affected by elicit drug use. I work in Cape Coral and he have many patients that have infections for drugs, a lot of unemployed and homeless. and working people uninsured but because they cannot be trusted to not use they must stay inpatient their whole treatment time and many go AMA repeatedly.
