The Philippines has a number of drug rehabilitation centres that cater for both national and foreign clients. The centres offer treatments that go beyond simple detoxification to address the other issues involved with dependency. In this way they hope to help the addict rehabilitate into society and refrain from dependent behaviours.

Serenity at the Quarry

Serenity at the Quarry is a drug and alcohol rehabilitation and treatment centre five hours north of Manila in the mountainous setting of Baguio City. The centre caters for international clients and the treatment is conducted in English unless specified otherwise. The facility operates according to the 12-step process favoured by Alcoholics Anonymous. The rehabilitation team is led by Junjun Abella, a licensed counsellor with the Professional Regulatory Commission of the Philippines.
