The Dangerous Drugs Board is now on its final stretch of training the last batch of outsourced enumerators in preparation for the 2023 National Household Survey on the Patterns and Trends of Drug Abuse in the Philippines.
The main objective of the 2023 National Household Survey on the Patterns and Trends of Drug Abuse is to determine the magnitude of the drug problem nationwide and estimate the number of lifetime and current drug users in the Philippines. It also aims to define the demographic
characteristics of lifetime and current drug users; measure awareness of the respondents to the anti-drug programs and services provided by the government at the barangay level; and provide
recommendations to counter the drug problem at the national level.
