4R Home shelter program for drug users, pushers launched

The Duterte Cabinet Spouses Association launched 4R Home, a shelter program for drug users and pushers who want to mend their lives for good, on November 30, Andres Bonifacio Day, at Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

In partnership with the Metro Manila Mayor's Spouses Foundation Inc. (MMMSFI), the Cabinet Spouses Association, led by its president Mrs. Jocelyn Sueno, wife of DILG Secretary Ismael Sueno, established a free formation house designed on addressing the reformation and treatment of drug users who voluntarily surrendered.

The 4R Home project aims to "Reform, Recharge, Re-integrate, and Re-educate" wayward drug dependents who want to return to the folds of law. It is under the Office of the President with the assistance from local government units and non-government agencies.

Drug surrenderers will be required to stay in the formation house until they are ready to be re-integrated to the society. It is a continuous formation program which will provide shelter, clinical counseling with spiritual upliftment, physical activities, and skills training.

The formation house comes with complete amenities, like a dormitory, dining hall, kitchen, entertainment and social hall, clinic and counseling room, chapel, basketball court, computer room, and special livelihood areas, to implement a more holistic approach in treating and rehabilitating patients.

Joining the turnover ceremony is Metro Manila Mayor's Spouses Foundation President Mrs. Janet Olivarez, wife of Paranaque Mayor Edwin Olivarez.
