This portal is meant to help Local Government Units and other organizations in the establishment of community-based treatment and rehabilitation network of services in their localities.

On September 19, 2015, the Dangerous Drugs Board passed Board Regulation No. 4, Series of 2016, entitled “OPLAN SAGIP – Guidelines on Voluntarily Surrender of Drug Users and Dependents and Monitoring Mechanism of Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Campaigns.” (Click here to view or download the Board Regulation) Apart from establishing clear guidelines in dealing with drug personalities who voluntarily submit themselves to authorities, the regulation also mandated Local Government Units (LGUs) through their Anti-Drug Abuse Councils (ADACs) to facilitate the establishment of community-based treatment and rehabilitation services and interventions to surrenderers found to be of low-risk or having mild substance use disorder. Based on statistics, this comprise at least 90% of drug users.
