30 drug users surrender in Naga City

NAGA CITY, July 4, 2016 (Bicol Standard) - At least 30 individuals who identified themselves as drug users surrendered to Mayor John Bongat at the City Hall this afternoon.

With their faces covered, they revealed they are from Barangay Penafrancia, this city.

A majority of them are women, the eldest among whom is 60 years old.

Bongat said the responsibility for their rehabilitation would have to be divided between the city government and the drug users.

He said the city has a budget for the rehabilitation. However, said budget is inadequate, so they are encouraging the private sector to assist in the rehabilitation.

The local chief executive said the drug users will be monitored by the police so they will not return to using the illegal substance.
