Annotation: In the Philippines, a wide range of non-governmental organizations are involved in the prevention and reduction of drug abuse.
Abstract: Because of their commitment to and involvement in an avowed partnership with the government to promote care and quality of life for young people, non-governmental organizations are combating the problems of drug abuse. The Dangerous Drugs Board, the government's policy making and coordinating body, in cooperation with non-governmental organizations, has made drug abuse prevention programs more viable and relevant. The cooperation promoted resource sharing and generated a more balanced approach towards program planning and implementation. The unified government services and non-governmental organizations have adopted the models and strategies that are action oriented and intended to promote positive values and attitudes, self-development, creative productivity, and skills in young people. 19 references.
