The West Indies islands are located in the western Atlantic Ocean, east of the Caribbean Sea and relatively close to South America. It takes only a few hours to fly from Miami to Antigua. From there, it’s a short airplane ride to Barbados. While Patients Beyond Borders generally places health considerations before vacations and leisure, it’s easy to let one’s guard down when thinking about these two destinations.
Picture miles of white sandy beaches, year-round mild temperatures, and balmy winds. The isolation and discretion offered by these two islands make Antigua and Barbados tailor-made for recovery and stress-free treatment. Thus, it’s no wonder people with substance abuse challenges seek help there in recovering from addictions, or that couples find the setting ideal for addressing stressful, emotionally charged fertility issues.
