During the 2nd Quarterly Meeting of City Anti- Drug Abuse Council (CADAC) held last June 9, 2021 at the Ceremonial Hall, San Pedro City Hall, CADAC Chair Mayor Lourdes S. Cataquiz emphasized that, here in our City, drug dependents are being taken care of and rehabilitated. She said that, “Kahit tayo ay nasa pandemic ay tuloy pa rin ang ating gawain na maging parte ng solusyon dito sa mga illegal drugs. In our own little way, layunin natin na maalagaan ang mga anak natin dito sa San Pedro na naliligaw ng landas. Ang drugs ay naging ‘Social Disease’ o sakit na ng ating lipunan. Kung kaya sa aking last term ay pagsusumikapan kong magkaroon ng Drug Rehabilitation Area at ‘Balay Silangan’ doon sa mga nabiling lupa ng City Government na maaliwalas at mahangin para sa kanila.”
Included in the agenda were the following:
Re- validation of twenty (20) drug cleared Barangays to be rolled out by Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency (PDEA) Provincial Office,
Updates on CADAC 2021 Activities (PNP- LGU),
Updates concerning on- going 2020 ADAC- FMS performance audit of DILG,
