Bridges of Hope, in partnership with the local government unit of Bagong Lipunan ng Crame in Quezon City, has conducted a seminar on drug addiction and treatment last July 28, 2017. Led by Bridges of Hope Senior Program Director, Guillermo “Gimo” Gomez, BH shared a seminar on addiction, its causes, symptoms, and pharmacology, among many other related topics.
This seminar was a primer for a local government-sponsored 30-day community-based rehab program to address the growing number of addicts in the area. Initiated by Senior Barangay Social Worker Ms Tabamo, along with Brgy Captain Jose Antonio Talamayan, the program aims to use Bridges of Hope’s brand of addiction treatment and rehabilitation to help the Bagong Lipunan community. The area has many surrenderees who are drug dependents, as part of President Rodrigo Duterte’s campaign against drugs and drug addiction.
The seminar, which was led by Gimo Gomez, was graced by all Bagong Lipunan local government officials, as well as the Sangguinang Kabataan.
Meanwhile, the program will officially start later this year.
Bridges of Hope has partnered with many local governments all over the country in order to provide more affordable community-based rehab treatment programs for those who can’t afford private rehab treatment.
