SOCCSKSARGEN DATRC AND LGU STO. NIÑO SIT ON DISCUSSING HELP TO PWUDs IN THE MUNICIPALITY
As part of the LGU’s active and sincere efforts to strengthen its anti-drug abuse program, the Sto. Niño Team, following Mayor Solly F. Villalobos‘ authorization, visited the SOCCSKSARGEN Drug Abuse Treatment and Rehabilitation Center (DATRC), Brgy. Kawas, Alabel, Sarangani Province.
The team, which included PMAJ Richard Pabalinas, the OIC-Sto. Niño MPS, Municipal Health Officer Dr. Evelyn E. Diosana, OIC-MSWDO Hannah Grace L. Furio, RSW, Municipal Administrator Joffrey F. Frinal, MPA, and Staff of Mayor’s Office, sat with Dr. Imelda Quiñones, the DATRC’s Chief of Hospital, to discuss the proposed Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on treatment and rehabilitation program of the local government.
One of the agreement’s objectives is to close the treatment and rehabilitation access gap between LGU Sto. Niño and Persons Who Use Drugs (PWUDs) classified with moderate and sever substance use disorder (SUD), through LGU’s financial assistance and direct endorsement of the clients to DATRC.
