General Mariano Alvarez Mayor Maricel Torres has inaugurated a new facility to help rehabilitate drug users and pushers in the town.
The town’s new In-Jail Drug Reformation Facility is located in the Municipal Jail in Barangay Aldiano Olaes.
It is part of the town’s Bukas Palad Program, an integrated and holistic effort to fight the illegal drug scourge.
Torres said the local government and other stakeholders would make sure that the identified pushers and users would be given the proper assistance.
The local government would implement the law against drug use while also helping rehabilitate the drug users and pushers, she said.
