Farewell drug addiction, recovering drug dependents that are willing to change join “CADRE” or Camp based Drug Rehabilitation program.
To remove the negative vibes associated with drug addiction, drug dependents or now called reforming drug personalities to undergo treatment and rehabilitation went to Camp Gallego for CADRE a recovery and wellness program.
Reforming drug personalities (RDP) whether drug users or pushers, who surrendered under Operation Tokhang are screened, interviewed and reviewed if they are worthy for a change.
Reforming drug personalities will first be profiled by the DOH to determine who among them are experimental, occasional or heavy compulsive users and drug dependents. This will help authorities in determining the suitable treatment for each one during the program.
Hopefully, CADRE program will “destigmatize” drug addiction and lead to more understanding about the “recovering drug dependents,” here in Lanao del Norte.
