The committee also referred the request for financial assistance of NODRF to the City Health Office and also inquired whether NODRF has provided treatment and rehabilitation to drug dependents in the City. The City Health Officer in his letter dated November 4, 2008, informed the committee that the City Health Office had referred 1-2 patients per year for rehabilitation at NODRF but the parents of these patients paid the prescribed fees as required by the Center. There was no admission of the patients for rehabilitation free of charge. It was also informed that the parents of these patients preferred to have their children rehabilitated at the PNP Drug Rehabilitation Center in Lahug, Cebu City or to the DOH Rehabilitation Center in Argao, Cebu since these are government owned and accredited facilities. It was informed further that indigent drug dependent patients are usually referred to the DOH Rehabilitation Center in Argao, Cebu wherein a very minimal fee is only required or no expenses at all. The parents only shoulder the transportation in going back and forth. The committee noted that in CY 2006 the City had extended financial assistance to NODRF sans having been accredited with the City Government. More so, the grant of financial assistance has been disbursed mainly for honoraria and professional fees. However, in line with the thrust of the Provincial Government to make Negros Occidental drug-free, all local government heads in the province have made pledges to provide financial assistance to NODRF which shall be utilized in the operation and maintenance of the Negros Occidental Drug Rehabilitation Center by which the City government of San Carlos has pledged to support P50,000.00. B. RECOMMENDATIONS/CONCLUSIONS: The committee MOVES to approve the request of the City Mayor and to grant financial assistance of P50,000.00 only. ---------------------RESOLUTION NO.
