Abuse of illegal drugs in children can be stopped by listening – PDEA Cordillera

Nov 18, 2017

BAGUIO CITY – The Philippine Drugs Enforcement Agency-Cordillera (PDEA-CAR) is stressing the importance of listening to prevent the use and abuse of illegal drugs among children.
In the observance of the Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Week this year, PDEA continues to find better ways to prevent the youth from the abuse of illegal drugs. PDEA who now leads the war against illegal drugs is embarking on parents to become a responsible father and mother by listening to their children.
This year, the Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Week is observed from November 13 to 19 with the theme “Makinig muna, ang pakikinig sa mga bata at kabataan ay daan upang tulungan silang lumaki na malusog at ligtas”.
PDEA-CAR information officer Attorney Joseph Calulut said, “Iba na ang pag-iisip ng mga kabataan ngayon. Kaya tayong mga magulang ay kailangang maglaan ng tamang attention at panahon sa ating mga anak para makinig. Baka sakaling mailayo natin sila sa illegal na droga.”
“Gone are the days when children still respect their parents and submit to them,” he added.
He said that in their campaign against illegal drugs in the region, they were able to arrest eleven minor offenders. Two of them are females.
“Some of these minors said that they were neglected by their parents and was influenced by their peers. Some of them said they were homeless and no one had ever bothered to look after them,” the officer said.
To stop these situations, the agency continues to conduct Information and Education Campaign (IEC) in the communities.
Partnering with the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG), Department of Social Welfare and Development Office (DSWD), Department of Education (Dep-Ed), Municipal and Barangay Drug Abuse Council (MDAC/BDAC), and now parents, PDEA is hopeful that they can prevent the abuse of illegal drugs especially among the children.
Pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 124, dated November 26, 2001, the Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Week is being observed every November each year. It aims to promote public awareness against the bad effects of illegal drugs and to encourage public cooperation in the government’s anti-drug campaign. DIONISIO DENNIS JR. / ABN
