P7.2-M drug rehab center rises in Albay
LEGAZPI CITY — Civil works for the construction of a P7.2-million drug rehabilitation center in Ligao City in Albay province will start this month, Gov. Al Francis Bichara said recently.
Bichara said the site development plan for the project in Barangay Tula-Tula was ready for bidding.
The center is scheduled to operate by year-end.
Bichara said the two-story, dormitory type rehabilitation center would rise on a 1-hectare government lot and would be made from 40-foot aluminum containers.
He said the center could accommodate 150 patients with severe drug problems. —Mar S. Arguelles
