Nueva Ecija 3rd District Rep. Rosanna Vergara said the opening of the first ever mega Drug Abuse Treatment and Rehabilitation Center (DATRC) in Fort Magsaysay, Palayan City highlights President Rodrigo Duterte determination to eliminate the illegal drugs trade but also his sincerity on ridding the country of this deadly menace.

The lady politiko, in a statement Tuesday, November 29, said the opening of the DATRC shows the Chief Executive is hell-bent on doing the things he said.

When fully operational, the DATRC could accommodate up to 10,000 drug dependents.

“It only proves to me that he’s a man who walks the talk. Sinabi niya, gagawin niya,” Vergara said.

The Nueva Ecija solon also expressed hope that the availability of a huge facility like mega DATRC will stop the extra judicial killings that has been assailed by some quarters.

“Like what he said, it’s a war, so there are casualties. But I hope now that the existence of a facility like this, all these senseless violence will end,” she added.

Vergara also expressed appreciation on the location being inside the military camp.
