Pineda: Maximize mega rehab center via referral system
Local governments must institutionalize a continuous referral system for the Mega Drug Abuse Treatment and Rehabilitation Center (MDATRC) in Fort Magsaysay, Nueva Ecija.
Pampanga Governor Lilia Pineda suggested this during a drug consultative meeting last May 26 attended by health workers, hospital officials, and other organizations.
The Pampanga politiko said more drug surrenderees will be able to undergo through the reformation program through the referral system.
The MDATRC has a 10,000 bed capacity but it only houses 300 patients.
Forty of the 300 patients are from Pampanga.
