The provincial government of Sarangani already acquired a three-hectare property in Alabel town for the site of the Regional Drug Treatment and Rehabilitation Center that will be built by the Duterte administration through a grant from the Chinese government.

According to Sarangani Governor Steve Chongbian Solon they already finalized the purchase of the lot worth P3.6 million located in Purok 4, Barangay Kawas in Alabel, following negotiations with the landowners.


Sarangani province pushed for the acquisition of the property after signing a memorandum of understanding last March wit the Department of Health (DOH) and the Chinese Embassy in Manila for the implementation of the P350-million project.

The Duterte admin had chosen Sarangani and Agusan del Sure as recipients of the project, which was cited as one of the outcomes of Pres. Rody Duterte's state visit to China last year.


Sarangani Provincial Health Officer Dr. Alvin Alejandro earlier said that they expect the project's preparatory works to start following the acquisition of the site. He also revealed that Chinese engineers from Tonji University already visited the area for ocular inspection.

The planned regional drug treatment and rehab center will have a capacity of 150 beds and will operate a recovery clinic. The drug rehab will be operated and managed by the DOH and will mainly cater drug dependents from Region 12.

Region 12 also known as SOCCKSARGEN, covers the provinces of South Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani and North Cotabato, and the cities of Gen. Santos, Koronadal, Tacurong, Kidapawan and Cotabato.
