7.5-hectare rehab center to rise in Capas

Capas, Tarlac – Tarlac province will soon have its own rehabilitation center for patients seeking treatment from illegal drug addiction.

Mayor Reynaldo Catacutan revealed the proposed 7.5-hectare Capas Drug Reformatory Center (CDRC) will be the first and only reformatory center in the province.

Apart from the buildings, the CDRC will include a hectare of both rice land and fish farm that will be supplied with fingerlings and seeds from the Department of Agriculture for the consumption and livelihood of the drug surrenderees.

“The Capas Drug Reformatory Center is the only reformatory center in the province of Tarlac and in the Region. Hopefully, it will be the first reformatory center built during the Duterte administration wherein surrenderees will pay no fees and will undergo only two months of treatment. Patients spend around P120,000 in six-months treatment in rehab centers,” said Catacutan.

Recently, The Municipal Anti-Drug Abuse Council (MADAC) and grass-root counterpart BADACs also expressed their plans in eradicating dangerous drugs and recognized Barangay Maruglo for being the first barangay declared as drug-free. Catacutan granted the said villae a P 200,000 project for their efforts in eradicating illegal drugs.

Catacutan said he will invite Duterte at the groundbreaking ceremony of the rehabilitation center slated on October 7, 2016.

Meanwhile, the MADAC will conduct a symposium dubbed “A Religious Concert for Drug Surrenderees” at the Dominican College of Tarlac next month.

The Capas government sought the help of stakeholders in the construction of the rehabilitation center during a meeting at the Capas Municipal Hall.

Companies such as the Pilmico Animal Nutrition Corp., Kalangitan Land Fill, Dominican College of Tarlac, D’Luxe Bags Philippines, RH Farm and Brookside, Golden Bulacan, Red Dragon, Capas Agri-Top, Green Riverland Farm Inc., Northrich Farm, and others committed to sponsor the construction of the Security Check Post and Entrance Road, PNP Outpost, Ecumenical Chapel, Male and Female Dormitory, Mess Hall, Recreation Area with Basketball Volleyball courts, and Tech School.

“The CDRC appears to be an ambitious project but will come to realization with kind donations of sponsors and the support of 3rd district Cong. Noel Villanueva, 2nd district Cong. Victor Yap, and the Province of Tarlac,” said Catacutan.
