La Union Rep. Sandra Eriguel on Sunday lauded the Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency for the establishment of a drug rehabilitation facility in Agoo to look after the welfare of the drug offenders.

“The new drug rehabilitation center is a testimony of the serious efforts of the local government to support the centerpiece program of our President [Rodrigo Duterte]. This is in cooperation among office of the provincial governor, Agoo Mayor Stefanie Agoo, Department of Health, PDEA and Congress,” she said.

The PDEA-Satellite office and reformation center would cater to the needs of drug offenders from La Union and the nearby province of Pangasinan.

“Drug offenders here are given livelihood skills training and various reformatory programs to prepare them to become renewed and productive citizens in their reintegration to the society,” Eriguel said.

The drug rehabilitation center is being run by the local government unit.

PDEA also opened a “Balay Silangan” satellite office in Agoo.
