||Our organization was established in 1994 by concerned citizens in answer to the growing problem of drug addiction. Our primary objective then was to construct a Rehabilitation Center for the province and nearby areas. Funding was a big problem and it was only in 1999 that we were able to source funds and so on February 20, 2000 the Nueva Ecija Rehabilitation, Training and Research Center was finally blessed and opened to the public. Our mission statement is:
Vision: To see a reduction in number of drugs and substance abusers in Nueva Ecija by 50% for the next five years and with progressive reduction in succeeding years to eventually attain a drug-free province.
Mission : Help people on drugs find new meaning and purpose in life ; support families of drug dependents in their efforts to rehabilitate their family member on drugs; disseminate relevant and responsible information on drug abuse.
Goal : To reduce and finally eliminate drug use and abuse in the province.
To date we have admitted more than two hundred patients in the Center.
