Font Size

INDIVIDUALS in the Davao Region who have themselves in for drug rehabilitation will soon get help from the Yakap Bayan Framework Intervention whose P57.3-million financial assistance will help them start livelihood activities and capacity building, said Dahlia S. Padillo of the Department of Social Welfare and Development. Ms. Padillo said the DSWD will also extend technical assistance to local government units for their rehabilitation programs. She cited further a “case management system for social workers handling recovering drug dependents.” Ronaldo a. Rivera, technical adviser of the City Anti-Drug Abuse Council, said for his part, “We teach them to lead a lifestyle that would make it difficult for them to go back or use drugs again.” — Carmelito Q.
