HIV Rates Rise in S. Florida, Harbor Village Comments on Health News Florida's Recent Article

Between 2012 and 2014 HIV infection rates rose from five to seven percent in Florida, according to the Health News Florida on June 17th. Those untreated heroin use disorders share their needles and spread the infection. Florida does not have needle exchange programs to prevent the spread of dirty needles throughout the community. Ultimately Florida’s HIV infection rates have bolstered to 23 percent due to lack of sexual education, and decreased fear of contracting the disease among teens and adults alike, according to Health News Florida. As of today there are 100,000 people in Florida with the infection. Harbor Village specializes in addiction detox in Florida and helps those struggling with IV use disorders get the help they need before permanent physical and mental brain damage occurs.

The Miami-Dade county heroin detox center asserts Florida communities must be more open to discussing the intimate details of HIV infection as it relates to sexual activity and drug use. An associate comments, “It’s not enough to say ‘Just say no.’ Teenagers need tangible evidence to instill in their minds as to why they should form healthy habits and abstain from having unprotected sex, while also avoiding experimenting with harmful addictive substances. It’s not enough for them to be lectured to, they need to momentarily be brought into the world of drugs through the safetynet of education. We can no longer handle our teenagers with kid gloves and expect them to understand the gravity of the perils which await them if they allow themselves to be swept up in the drug world. Improving our sexual education models in South Florida is imperative, and merits the attention of state officials to quell rising HIV infections."
