A mother and a sister of alleged drug addict went to the popular show Raffy Tulfo in Action to ask for help. The brother always ask them for money and if they would not give him, he take anything in the house to sell and make money out of it or he would shout and break things. The mother could not take it anymore. All they want is that he should be out of the house for them to have peace.
Upon questioning, Mr. Tulfo learned that he drug addict was an overseas Filipino worker who used to work in Dubai. He was not like that before. When he learned about his wife having a relationship with another man, he got depressed. In coping with depression, he turned to drugs, thinking that it would help him feel better. His family has coordinated with the Barangay Anti-Drug Abuse Center to put him into a rehabilitation facility be he often refuse to do so.
To settle things, the complainants were assisted by police officers. When they entered his room they found shabu paraphernalia and a leather belt tied on the beam, indicative that he was already planning to hang himself.
The chief of police even offered him to stay at the police precinct if he doesn’t have anywhere to go.
After two days, he want back to her mother and sisters house as a new person. The mother said he is now getting along with the family very well and totally turned his back on his vices.
