Lingayen MADAC takes custody of drug pushers, users

REHABILITATION BEGINS

THE 311 drug personalities from the town’s 32 barangays that surrendered to the Lingayen Police Station are already undergoing rehabilitation under the custody of the Lingayen Municipal Anti-Drug Abuse Council (MADAC).

However, P/Superintendent Jackson Seguin, Lingayen chief of police said, the town’s police station will continue to monitor the activities of the drug users and pushers under the MADAC’s watch.

Seguin said the turnover was made to help revitalize the council by making it initiate a rehabilitation program using its funds.

Meanwhile, he said 15 barangays have already been declared drug-free and the status of the remaining 17 Barangays is still under validation to determine if they will be recommended soon to be drug-cleared.

Atty. Sunshine Robles-Cosme, town administrator and legal officer, said the Lingayen government is committed to support for the rehabilitation of the surrendered drug personalities until they are removed from the police drug watch list.

She said the rehabilitation efforts have shown improvements on the mindset of the surrendered drug users and pushers and the municipal government is set to move on to the next phase of providing livelihood activities. (Nora Dominguez)
