Recovery High Schools and the Drug War
In the United States, "recovery high schools" are beginning to emerge. Treatment clinics as these are mostly short term are thought to be inadequate for drug abuse rehabilitation. Thus, high schools can provide a longer period and a much more personal environment to address drug abuse among adolescents. These schools of course help not only in avoiding relapse but also in providing basic education.

There is no escape that rehabilitation requires resources. Recognizing that drug use and abuse is not just a criminal problem but also a health issue requires us to take rehabilitation seriously. The Philippines needs resources to address its drug problem in a much more humane fashion. Helping the Philippines should not stop at merely criticizing the Duterte administration in its current actions against the drug problem of the nation.
