SANTIAGO CITY, Isabela — A 300-bed capacity building, used as school building of Isabela State University – Santiago City campus, is undergoing renovation since city executives plan to use it as a rehabilitation center.
The building is located at Balintocatoc, several kilometers away from the city proper.
Mayor Jospeh Tan, earlier, said that with the relentless anti-illegal drugs operations of the police there are users who want to undergo rehabilitation to live a normal life.
He said the two-storey building is suitable for drug rehabilitation since it can accommodate a number of people, who will be safeguarded through, among others, a perimeter fence.
He said the City Health Office will oversee the operations of the rehabilitation center, which is set to formally open at the end of this month. PNA/northboundasia.com
