            One of the main concern and agenda of the Duterte administration is to lessen, or
subside, if not totally eradicate the proliferation of illegal drugs that cause
menace in this country. The illegal drug addiction is not only a national
problem but also a multinational issue. Its rapid increase from being the cause
and effect of the problem is one of the major reasons of the unsteady and
sluggish progress of the nation. Rampant and widespread consumption of illegal
drugs and culprit acts associated to illegal drug addiction are some of the
serious problems face by the Philippine society. (Dulin, Guadamor 2017)

            The
Philippine government is doing their best to quell the worsening drug abuse
problem and its rapid increase in numbers in this country that is why the go it
really focused on terminating illegal drugs that can put the entire nation in
danger. To address the drug abuse problem, the Philippine government made a

            The
Comprehensive Dangerous Drug Act of 2002, or the Republic Act No. 9165, was
promoted by the Philippine Government to fortify citizen form the detrimental
effects of prohibited drugs. The Local Government Units has provided with
authority to form, legislate and execute programmes to guarantee a more
effective implementation of this act and in-order to control the escalation of

Campaign Program is combating anti the drug obsession or addiction amid entire
degrees of society. As long as there is cooperation from the public and tough
observing in the implementing the campaign this program will be successful. The
endeavors of the Drug Prevention Campaign usually focus on juveniles and
teenagers. The objective of the campaign is to expand the public’s realization
of the possible negative impact and repercussion of drug use. The emphasis is

problem in order to engender individual, group and the communities through
involvement in establishing social action programmes to lessen the perceived

the nature and extent of the problem, its underlying causes, and defining their
own roles in the resolution of the problem. It utilizes varied educational
methods and approaches which, hopefully, will positively influence knowledge,
attitudes and behaviour. (Author: Mrs. Aurora S. CUDAL)
