ILOILO CITY, Feb. 9 (PIA6) --- Over a thousand participants from various sectors in Iloilo City joined the 1stRehabinasyon Roadshow held Feb. 9 at Jubilee Hall here.
Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Assistant Secretary Ramon Cualoping III said the program Rehabinasyon operates under the auspices of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD) which was established by Executive Order No. 15, signed by President Rodrigo Duterte.
"Binuo po natin ang programa na ang tawag ay "Rehabinasyon"; Sa Rehabinasyon po ay tutulungan natin ang bayan, ang bawat isa sa atin, kasama po kayo, para maayos natin ang Pilipinas, matanggal natin ang druga sa Pilipinas," he said.
Rehabinasyon, a portmanteau of the words "rehabilitation" and "nation", is the Philippine government's all-encompassing campaign against illegal drugs.
"This aims to harmonize all the efforts of the government in terms of anti-illegal drug policies, enforcement, rehabilitation and justice," he said.
The ICAD, chaired by the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA), is composed of 42 member-agencies, each having a specific role in the fight against illegal drugs.
The committee is composed of four clusters namely enforcement, justice, rehabilitation and reintegration, and advocacy.
The Enforcement Cluster, through the help of other law enforcement agencies such as PDEA and the National Anti-Drug Task Force, performs anti-illegal drug operations including the conduct of investigations against persons involved in illegal drugs.
The Justice Cluster is responsible for the efficient execution of all drug cases and providing a sufficient number of attorneys to help protect individual rights of those who voluntarily surrendered and arrested during anti-illegal drug operations.
The Rehabilitation and Reintegration Cluster implements drug rehabilitation programs to ensure the reintegration of former drug dependents and other drug personalities as useful members of society.
The Advocacy Cluster conducts nationwide advocacy campaign for the government's anti-illegal drug policy and all implementing programs.
Meanwhile, the PCOO has the role of packaging and marketing this campaign into a cohesive and streamlined advocacy. (JSC/LTP/PIA6 Iloilo)
