President Rodrigo Duterte led Friday the inauguration of a P500-million drug rehabilitation facility in Malaybalay, Bukidnon.

Named as the Northern Mindanao Wellness and Reintegration Center (NMWRC), it is the largest treatment and rehabilitation facility for victims of illegal drugs in Mindanao, Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) said.

The NMWRC is a donation by the Friends of the Philippines Foundation to the national government.

The project was built on a five-hectare land donated by the local government of Malaybalay City.

The NMWRC can accommodate around 600 patients on a 6-month treatment cycle.
