GIPAHILUNA na ni Gobernador Anthony del Rosario ang ‘kapsula’ timaan sa pagsugod sa konstruksyon sa Singko Milyones nga kantidad sa DavNor Balay Silangan bilding lakip na ang Lima ug tunga ka milyones nga Sheltered Education Workshop bilding alang sa mga Persons with Disabilities (SEW-PWD), Huwebes, Marso 29.  

Ang Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB) Regulation No. 2, Series 2018 sa Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) ilawom sa Office of the President nagbaod sa tanang Local Government Unit nga magtukod ug Balay Silangan alang sa misurender nga biktima sa illegal nga droga sa tumong nga mag-reporma kanila ngadto sa pagkahimong masinundanong miembro sa katilingban.

Based sa DDB Regulation nga gipagawas, actually mandated, the PDEA is tasked to supervise and the LGU to manage the facility including the trainings of the beneficiaries under the Dangerous Drugs Board, of course ang Republic Act 9165. . Required dili lang province including municipal level as long as makaya nila sa ilang budgetary capability. Atong gi-prioritize ang city ug province pero in the long run we’ll also include the different municipalities of Davao del Norte.

Once you violated the DDB regulations, you will be filed administratively and criminally under Section 62 of Republic Act 9165, there is an imprisonment and of course monetary fines. That’s why we really encourage all LGUs to help this program; bug-at, bug-at kay ang mo-file sa administrative ang DILG, ang mo-file sa criminal charges ang PDEA,” matod ni PDEA Agent Clodito Cañada nga nagbutyag sab nga ang IGaCoS ug LGU Davao del Norte pa lang ang dunay Bahay Silangan.        

PDEA Director General Aaron N. Aquino cited Dangerous Drugs Board (DDB) Regulation Number 2, Series of 2018 which laid the groundwork of “Balay Silangan”. The regulation was approved and adopted on January 24, 2018.

General interventions, like continuing education and health awareness, and psychological/spiritual/physical activities such as counseling, moral recovery, values formation, personal and life skills, among others, are provided under the program. Livelihood and skills training programs which include soap making, massage training, basic carpentry, welding, haircutting, etc., are likewise provided to give drug reformers employment opportunities. 

Aquino said that there are specific conditions for eligibility to the program that must be met by surrendering drug personalities. “They must not belong to the PDEA/PNP target list, wanted list and watch list, or has any other pending criminal case/s. Those who availed of the plea bargaining agreement and/or convicted under Section 15, Article II of RA 9165 that are required to undergo rehabilitation and those who served jail terms for violation of the anti-drug law,” Aquino pointed out.
