LINGAYEN— The Pangasinan Reformation Center (PRC) built and managed by the provincial government in Burgos town has already helped in the rehabilitation of 138 drug users/pushers since it became operational in April 10 last year.
PRC’s OIC-Administrator Dr. Eugenie Guiang said the reformed drug personalities from six localities in the province completed a four-day Integrated Reformation Program (IRP) separately.
“The IRP is enriched with spiritual and moral counselling, personality development and leadership enhancement trainings, coupled with training on entrepreneurship and livelihood,”. Guiang said.
The PRC, under the leadership of Governor Amado Espino III, according to training director Rhodyn Luchinvar Oro, has produced IRP graduates from Burgos (29), Dasol (30), Lingayen and Binmaley (18), Binmaley (21), Mabini (20), and Alaminos City (20).
The PRC also accommodated 34 Sangguniang Kabataan leaders from Pozorrubio, and 36 out-of-school youth from Anda. The two youth groups were provided training on community development.
Gov. Espino, inspired by the positive responses from the graduates and their families to the services provided by the PRC, wants to expand the center’s facilities.
Oro cited the donation of the Cabiles family led by matriarch Belen, and her son, Aldrin, of another one hectare lot intended for the expansion in addition to the two-hectare lot previously donated by the family for the PRC.
The Philippine National Police, as a development partner of the PRC, has vowed to continue its support to the IRP. (PIO/MGNO).
