Date: September 1995



The San Juan Star's four-part series examines Hogar Crea, Inc., the non-profit giant that dominates Puerto Rico's drug rehabilitation field. Crea, run with a tight grip by founder Juan Jose Garcia Rios, raises millions of dollars from the public each year, but has little accountability for those funds. With more than 6,000 recovering drug addicts as foot soldiers, Crea packs potent politcal muscle--an asset it has used to its own benefit. (September 1995)
