DILG says 28,000 villages drug-free

THE DEPARTMENT of Interior and Local Government (DILG) has declared 28,000 villages free of illegal drugs after a year of its intensified campaign.

The agency arrested 95,790 drug users and seized P21 billion worth of illegal narcotics in 75,831 operations, Interior and Local Government Secretary Benjamin C. Abalos, Jr. said in a statement at the weekend.

He added that 177 police personnel were nabbed for drug-related crimes.

A community-based drug rehabilitation program in 1,534 local government units catered to more than 20,000 enrollees, he said. Seventy-four inpatient rehabilitation facilities served more than 31,000 drug users.

The DILG is working with the Labor department to provide work for people who have been rehabilitated, he added. — Chloe Mari A. Hufana
