The increase in the number of drug surrenderers in the province of Surigao del Sur paved way for the planning and implementation of rehabilitating Person Who Uses Drugs (PWUDs). During the implementation of Project Double Barrel on July 2016, this province has a total of 9,541 drug dependents. The implementation of Facility Based Rehabilitation Program and Community Based Rehabilitation Program for Drug Surrenderers was being directed to us.
The province of Surigao del Sur lacks the facility for rehabilitating the PWUDs. SDSPPO with the support of the LGUs come-up with the idea of implementing rehabilitation program by means of community based rehabilitation program which intends to develop a total reformation of PWDUs through the SDS TESDA.
The PROJECT PAGLAUM (Pag Bag-o Alang Sa Lamdag Ug Malambuon Nga Kaugmaon) is a Skills Training Program for the PWUDs that aims to enhance their technical skills by undergoing the TESDA NC II Trainings, physical, moral and spiritual values of PWUDs to be rehabilitated and became empowered and responsible citizens.
This was attended by the selected PWUDs from all Municipalities and Cities in the entire province.
