Drug-recovery businesses are moving to other parts of Florida as a crackdown in Palm Beach County leads to dozens of arrests, prosecutors say.

“What we’re seeing is a lot of these unscrupulous places are packing up and moving elsewhere, which may be good for Palm Beach County, but we’re all in this together,” said Palm Beach County State Attorney Dave Aronberg, who leads the county’s Sober Homes Task Force.

First lady Melania Trump will make her first visit to a drug treatment center on Tuesday.

Trump plans to visit Lily’s Place, an infant recovery center in Huntington, W.Va., that treats babies who have been exposed to addictive substances while their mother was pregnant.

“To help babies born addicted truly succeed, we must help their parents succeed,” Trump’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham told CNN.

“The statistic that 40 percent of babies born addicted to drugs are put into foster care is one that Mrs. Trump would like to see lowered, and Lily’s Place was created with that in mind,” Grisham said. “They recognize that parents who are working hard to overcome addiction will encounter barriers and need support.”
