Driven by a strong desire of making Pagbilao a drug-free, criminality-free community, Pagbilao officials embraced the grand municipal launching of the DILG-mandated program MASA MASID or “Mamamayang Ayaw Sa Anomalya, Mamamayang Ayaw Sa Iligal na Droga”, March 17, 2017 at the Pagbilao Covered Court.
MASA MASID is a community-based initiative aiming to heighten community involvement by mobilizing the support of local stakeholders, volunteers, civic organizations, faith-based organizations, and the private sectors in the fight against illegal drugs, anomaly and criminality.
The program’s implementation is based on Republic Act 9165 or Comprehensive Drugs Law of the Philippines, Article II Section 23 of 1987 Philippine Constitution, Section 3 Paragraph L of the Local Government Code of 1991, and President Rodrigo Duterte’s pronouncement to suppress criminality, corruption, and illegal drugs.
Specifically, it aims to: (1) Intensify the advocacy and education campaign in the community, (2) Mobilize the community in gathering information by installing a reporting mechanism on the illegal activities in the locality, (3) Mobilize support group and encourage sharing of available resources to hasten the implementation of the Community-Based Rehabilitation Program, and (4) Create an enabling environment to encourage collaboration among the community partners to effectively implement the Community-Based Rehabilitation Program.
MASA MASID will be implemented by the Municipal Technical Working Group (TWG) composing of the DILG through the Municipal Local Government Operations Office (MLGOO), Faith-Based Organizations, Civic Organizations, Liga ng mga Barangay, Local Philippine National Police, Municipal Anti-Drug Abuse Council, and Municipal Volunteer Desk Manager. The TWG will carry out the program through these strategies: (1) Demand Reduction through Advocacy and Education Campaigns, (2) Supply Reduction through Information Gathering and Reporting, and (3) Community-Based Rehabilitation Program.
In connection with MASA MASID implementation is the Community-Based Rehabilitation Program which has three (3) components namely: (1) Patients’ Care, (2) Family Care, and (3) Community Care. The Community-Based Rehabilitation Program: (1) Is geared towards the Holistic intervention for recovering drug patient with focus on the healing of the body and soul; (2) Covers psychological, neurological, spiritual and social dimensions; (3) Focuses not only on the healing of the patients but also care for their families and the whole community; (4) Will be facilitated by the Community Rehabilitation Network or CRN volunteers; (5) Has a duration of 48 days depending on the condition of the patient; (6) Prioritizes barangays with fifty (50) surrenderees or cluster of barangays.
