Talisay City Outpatient Rehab and Aftercare Program are constantly looking for ways to provide the best care possible for their community. Recently, they identified a need to increase the number of chairs so that they are able to accommodate more people and so that people can sit during sessions.
What is Talisay City Outpatient Rehabilitation Center?
Talisay City Outpatient Rehabilitation Center and Aftercare Program is a community-based treatment program for drug users or drug dependents who are seeking help with their drug problems. The program was initiated in 2012 by Dr Ray Cesar in Bautista.
Community-based rehabilitation is recommended by the Department of Health to local government units as a means to address the surge of drug users. Patients work through a 90-day program, they find a chair and a place to meet and talk, to track their progress and share valuable life experiences on their journey to recovery.
The mission is to infiltrate the dependants back into society.
The need for more chairs
As a rehabilitation centre, Talisay City Outpatient Rehabilitation Center strives to be the best at what they do. They are always looking for ways to improve the service that they provide to their patients.
As the centre has grown, many of their sessions have resulted in people standing for several hours. A need was identified, and WAOImpact came up with the idea to increase the number of chairs so that their patients can be more comfortable.
100 monoblock chairs were donated to be used for their daily recovery programs and therapy sessions. The donation was received by the City Mayor, the Hon. Mayor Gerald Anthony Samsam Gullas, who thanked Carl Castro, the representative of WAOConnect and WAOImpact for their generosity and for their support in the city’s outpatient rehabilitation program.
