Heroin addicts from Puerto Rico are being sent to Chicago - sometimes with one-way tickets from police there, or from government authorities. The men are told they’re coming for high-end treatment. The places they end up are often rundown, unlicensed residences with no treatment - and many addicts leave. Reporter Adriana Cardona Maguigad brought us this story on This American Life. Theodora Binion is acting director of the Illinois Department of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse and joins us to talk. Also, jazz sounds from Makaya McCraven. (Flickr/Ricymar Photography)
