Muntinlupa City recognized for its effective programs against illegal drugs

In the progressive city of Muntinlupa, the local campaign against illegal drugs organized by the City Government’s Anti-Drug Abuse Council (ADAC) was recognized by the Department of the Interior and Local Government-National Capital Region (DILG-NCR), the Business Mirror reported. This is the latest recognition Muntinlupa City earned.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Business Mirror news report. Some parts in boldface…

WITH its relentless effort to keep away its constituents from illegal substance abuse that have nil effects not only to their health and well-being but to their socioeconomic status as well, the City of Muntinlupa has been recognized by the Department of the Interior and Local Government-National Capital Region (DILG-NCR) office for the effective implementation of its programs against illegal drugs.

The DILG-NCR rated the City’s Anti-Drug Abuse Council (ADAC) as “highly functional,” per the result of its recent audit of anti-drug abuse programs among key cities and towns in Metro Manila.

Additionally, it also gave a “functional” rating to Muntinlupa’s Peace and Order Council (POC) for effective implementation of policies and programs for security and order.

Congratulations, Muntinlupa City! Maraming salamat sa lahat ng bumubuo ng ating ADAC at Local POC [Thank you to the people behind our Anti-Drug Abuse Council and local Peace and Order Council], Mayor Rozzano Rufino Biazon said in response to the recent achievements of the local government unit (LGU).

The DILG-NCR audit ran from 2019 to 2021. It covered the implementation of anti-drug programs by LGUs, such as anti-drug interventions for persons who use drugs (PWUDs).

The overall state of PWUDs in Muntinlupa is overseen by the Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Office (DAPCO), which is part of the local ADAC and POC.

DAPCO, which is headed by PCol. Florocito Ragudo (ret.), implemented various programs, including the evaluation and certification of drug-free workplaces and residences and the effective reform and rehabilitation of PWUDs.
