HOW SERIOUS IS DRUG & ALCOHOL ADDICTION IN PHILIPPINES?
Addiction takes lives. Like many other areas throughout Asia Philippines many individuals and their family members have been affected by addiction. Although alcohol has always been an issue drug abuse has risen substantially over the years and the most popular addictive drugs in Philippines are heroin, cocaine and crystal methamphetamine (also known as meth or ice)
WHERE TO FIND HELP FOR ADDICTION IN PHILIPPINES
Unlike Thailand and Bali Philippines is not home to many private drug addiction treatment centres therefore most of our Pilipino clients contact us for online counselling and support before or after attending an international drug or alcohol rehab.
WHERE TO FIND ALCOHOL OR DRUG REHAB IN PHILLIPINES
Manilla, Makati City, Quezon City and Angeles City have limited resources and our experience tells us that the chances of success in recovery from addiction is to attend either a remote treatment centre in the Philippines or better still an alternate rehab in other parts or the world particularly Asia which is often a lot more cost effective than America or Australia. More information regarding this can be found at our recommended rehabs page.
