Since the start of Greece's economic turmoil, that rate of homeless drug addicts in Athens has doubled, as confirmed by the Therapy Center for Dependent Individuals (KETHEA).
44.4% of individuals studied were reported to be homeless; in comparison to last year's 35.2% rate and 2010's 24.5% figure. Regarding drug dependent cases that did live in homes, four in ten stated to analysis administrators that they live without water or electricity, as reported by Kathimerini.
60% of the KETHEA participants in the study did not regularly work, and 60% of female drug users claimed to have offered sex acts to support their dependencies. Almost all of the cases had health issues and no public medical care. 10% were HIV positive, while 40% stated that they didn't have health insurance, and 30% carried hepatitis. Many of the drug dependent cases have not been medically tested, resulting in a higher actual rate of undiagnosed diseases.
