For four months now, a volunteer based program has been running in a baranggay in Quezon City. It aims to support individuals and their families who wish to start fresh and confront and work on issues that led to their drug dependency and addiction. Another initiative is currently being proposed to help rehabilitate drug dependents by helping them gain access to sustainable livelihood projects like urban farming

We talk to Dr Marie Grace Gomez  and Maria Pilar Lorenzo from The University of the Philippines, both were participants of the recently held International Research Forum on the Philippines 2017,  organized by La Trobe University's Philippine Australia Study Centre and the  Filipino Australia Student Council (FASTCO)
