Reaffirming his campaign to end the drug-related incidence in the country, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte led the inauguration of the Moscati Meadows Residential Treatment Facility (MMRTF) in Laur, Nueva Ecija.
In his speech, the President acknowledged the role of the new treatment facility in bringing back the lives of the drug dependents to normalcy. He also reiterated the ill effects of drug abuse, citing that aside from deteriorating the mind and body, it also destroys the lives and families of the drug abusers.
“By complementing traditional rehabilitation treatment with non-medical treatment methods such as group and individual therapy sessions, meditation, and horticulture and farm animal therapy, you will not just provide holistic care to the patients, but will also empower them to become effective drug and alcohol counselors to their peers who suffer the same predicament,” President Duterte said.
“By reforming drug dependents, we do not only effectively combat this scourge, but also give our kababayans a chance to start productive lives anew with their families and loved ones,” he added.
With a professional team of specialists in world-class drug and alcohol addiction treatment manning the one-hectare facility, the MMRTF offers various treatment methods used in the United States of America (USA) to provide a six-month holistic rehabilitation program for its patients who are victims of drug and alcohol addiction in the country.
