Burgos rehab facility set to admit paroled drug convicts

MANGALDAN–The rehabilitation services of Pangasinan Provincial Reformation Center (PPRC) in Burgos town is being offered by the provincial government to convicted drug pushers on parole apart from the reformed drug personalities that surrendered in the province.

This was disclosed by retired Colonel Rhodhyn Luchinvar Oro, Provincial Risk Reduction and Management Officer (PDRRMO), who represented Gov. Amado Espino III during the awarding of certification by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) recognizing Mangaldan as drug-free municipality on Nov. 26.

Oro said the provincial government will partner with the Department of Justice, the mother agency of the Bureau of Parole, for a program that will provide drug convicts from Pangasinan on parole an after-care program centering on spiritual, moral and values formation as well as livelihood training.

Located in Barangay San Vicente, Burgos, the PPRC caters basically to the drug surrenderers who have expressed willingness to reform, Oro said.

The establishment of PPRC was initiated by Gov. Amado Espino III to provide spiritual, moral and values formation and skills training on different livelihood projects to the drug surrenders.

Oro said Gov. Espino is extending the services of the PPRC to the 200 reformed drug surrenders of Mangaldan who have completed the community-based drug rehab program.
