The Department of Health conducted a two-day orientation in Negros Oriental to address the growing concern over what to do with the rising number of drug users, who have surrendered to the police in the past two weeks.

The orientation on the community-based rehabilitation program aims to complement the efforts of President Rodrigo Duterte and Philippine National Police chief, Director General Ronald dela Rosa, to eradicate the illegal drugs problem in the country.

The two-day orientation, held in Dumaguete City Thursday and Friday last week, identified the steps or the processes a self-confessed drug user will follow after that person has surrendered to the police, Dr. Socrates Villamor, OIC chief, Local Health Support Division of the DOH-Negros Island Region, said. .
