Well it turns out some of you know that Eric Clapton is a recovering heroin addict and alcoholic and he founded the Crossroads Centre in Antigua. His vision was to create a Treatment Centre like no other to create a combination of therapies and address addiction and recovery in a spiritually serene environment. Hence in Antigua the Crossroads Centre became a reality in 1998. The addicts receive the treatment at the lowest possible cost level, since the Centre is nonprofit. http://crossroadsantigua.org
So the why is: to help out the Centre's Financial well being.
