While President Rodrigo Duterte has vowed to intensify the government’s drive against illegal drugs and even promising a bloody campaign to rid the country of drug traffickers and users, former addicts have shown that there is hope and life after a bout with substance abuse.

Recently, a200 former drug addicts gathered in Naga City in Camarines Sur province to raise awareness about their plight and struggle to recovery.

The summit, said to be the first to be held in the country, coincided with the celebration of the IDADAIT (International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking).


It was sponsored by the DDB (Dangerous Drugs Board), the PDEA (Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency) and the DOH (Department of Health), in partnership with the city government and the Center for Christian Recovery.

To former addicts, who had been rehabilitated but continue to struggle to keep themselves sober, sharing their life’s journey without drugs is a way to avoid relapse, according to a summit participant, who has found his calling in assisting the recovery of users like himself.
