REFORMED DRUG PERSONALITIES
LINGAYEN— The Pangasinan Reformation Center (PRC), in San Vicente, Burgos town, was officially launched on April 10 with the completion of the training of the first batch of drug personalities under community-based rehabilitation programs (CBRP) or drug treatment.
Twenty-eight drug personalities from Burgos town who surrendered and completed the CBRP completed the four-day integrated reformation program of the provincial government that ended on April 13.
Executive Assistant IV Ramon Morden, on behalf of Governor Amado I. Espino, III, told the reformed drug personalities that the provincial administration built the PRC to become a training ground to help better the lives of Pangasinenses.
“Take advantage of this good opportunity given to you,” Morden told the reformed drug personalities.
Meanwhile, PRC officer-in-charge Eugenie Guiang said the reformation facility of Pangasinan — the first-of-its-kind in the country — clarified that the facility is not intended only for reformed drug personalities but to anyone who would like to better his life.
“The PRC is a multi-purpose facility which seeks to help promote the general welfare of Pangasinenses by bringing them closer to social services, which include livelihood undertakings they could engage in,” Guiang, also chief of Dasol Community Hospital, said.
Even after the four-day reformation training, the trainees’ activities will continue to be monitored.
Also present during the first day of reformation training were Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Officer Rhodyn Luchinvar Oro, head of PRC’s training directorate, and Carlo Resureccion, Provincial Anti-Drug Abuse Council liaison officer. (PIO/MGNO)
