City eyes sites for drug rehab

The city government is eyeing possible sites for some 700 city drug-yielders who gave up the vice and the province close to 10,000 drug-surenderees who are all up for drug rehabilitation otherwise they will go back to their old vices.

This developed as the police headquarters all over the province reported as of Thursday som 9,717 self-confessed drug users and pushers and should reach about 10,000 over the weekend.

This was learned from PS/Supt Nestor Tiempo, new provincial PNP director who has been moving through the towns and cities of the province monitoring the performances of his station commanders.

City police chief PS/ Supt Jovy Atanacio also briefed all city councilors last Thursday as to the way Dumaguete is responding relatively slower in pace.

He said most of the users and pushers are sporting a wait-and-see attitude.

Most barangay captains, the police and stakeholders here agree that Dumaguete city has a potential of 5000 drug users and pushers combined.

The police is also giving them all the chances until such time that the next wave will be enforced.


Here is the town-bytown report of the police on the self-yielding of drug users and pushers province wide:
