35 Navoteños graduated from the 'Bidahan' program

MANILA, Philippnes- About 35 Navoteños who used to use illegal drugs are now facing rehabilitation after graduating from Bidahan, a community-based treatment and rehabilitation program of the city of Navotas.

Bidahan includes a six-month Community-Based Drug Rehabilitation Program (CBDRP) and an additional six months for aftercare.

The participants go through weekly psychoeducation lectures, counseling sessions, group therapy sessions, relapse prevention sessions and life skills training while they also undergo random drug testing to ensure compliance with the said program.

Navotas City Mayor John Rey Tiangco thanked the courage of those who participated and accepted that they lost their way and eventually changed.

“Bidahan is just the first step in the long road of healing and recovery,” ani Tiangco.

“The challenge now is keeping them drug-free. We are hopeful that with the care and support of their family and loved ones, they will be able to lead better lives as productive members of society,” dagdag ng alkalde

Bidahan recorded 721 graduates from 2016-2019 of which 285 PWUDs graduated under the CBDRP in 2017 and 82 completed the aftercare program from 2018. R.A Marquez
