120 drug users to enroll in Alternative Learning System

A TOTAL of 120 out of the 303 drug surrenderers in San Enrique, Negros Occidental will enroll in the Alternative Learning System (ALS) program of the Department of Education (DepEd).

Senior Inspector Rey Molas, chief of San Enrique Municipal Police Station, said the 120 drug surrenderers are those who were not able to complete their secondary education.

The municipal police station launched on Tuesday the Eskwela Masid Project witnessed by officials led by Mayor Jilson Tubillara and Ma. Lina Sanogal, action officer of Provincial Anti-Drug Abuse Council.

Molas said the program is aimed to provide free education to the drug surrenderers based on their capabilities.

They will undergo profiling and other assessments before enrolling, he added.

The program is part of the town’s drug rehabilitation program and also a preparation for the localization and replication of the Capitol’s wellness camp for moderate drug users, Molas further said.
