Based on findings from this study in September of 170 families or 491 people, 97% of the populations of the city EDC suffer collateral damage borne by an addiction to alcohol.
 
A trigger that drains in its wake an alarming rate of unemployment around 50% and a dropout rate and absenteeism records in the city of Black River EDC.
 
The same report points to the precarious habitat. 8% of adults and 20% of children do not thereby have a bedroom and share the same room to sleep.
 
This lack of privacy causes of teenage pregnancy among girls who receive the brunt of 73% of them.
