European Union Ambassador Franz Jessen has congratulated the local government of Tarlac led by Governor Susan Yap for the successful establishment of the first completely voluntary, confidential and evidence-based Drug Recovery Clinic.

Jessen visited on May 17 the EU-supported clinic in Tarlac.

“Drug addiction mostly affects people facing hardships, poor people and those living in difficult family situations. It could happen to everyone,” he said.

He said that under this project, patients can freely decide about getting a treatment that respects confidentiality.

Through good cooperation and under the leadership of the Department of Health (DOH), he said that the clinic has become an essential part of the Philippine drug de-addiction model.

“It’s approach is recovery in line with the principles and values of human dignity,” Jessen added.
