ANTI-DRUG ABUSE COUNCIL (ADAC)

IMPLEMENTING GUIDELINES ON THE FUNCTIONALITY AND EFFECTIVENESS OF LOCAL ANTI-DRUG ABUSE COUNCILS

  • The use of illegal drugs is a serious threat to our health, well-being, and national security.
  • President Rodrigo Roa Duterte acknowledged its proliferation as a primary hindrance to the development of the community.
  • DILG and DDB to accelerate and cascade the campaign against illegal drugs.

Local Anti-Drug Abuse Councils(“ADACs”) have a critical role in the coordination and proper monitoring of drug-related incidents. This entails cohesion of policies for the inter-local government roles which can provide an enabling environment for functional and effective ADACs. This further requires structural consistency and a comprehensive monitoring and reporting system.
