President Rodrigo Roa Duterte led the inauguration of the Northern Mindanao Wellness and Reintegration Center (NMWRC) in Malaybalay City, Bukidnon on August 3, 2018.

It was on March 25, 2017 when President Duterte visited the Province for the groundbreaking of the proposed rehabilitation center.

The five hundred (500) million worth facility was donated by Mr. Kitson Kho of the Friends of the Philippines Foundation and Kinming (Xiamen) Real Estate Co., Ltd. to the Government of the Philippines.

The NMWRC would combine the process of detoxification, rehabilitation, sports, and recreation; education and skills-training under one roof. Its goal is to turn drug abuse treatment from compulsory to voluntary. Standardization, humanization and modernization shall be the guiding principles of the center.

Drug abused patients would have a minimum of a six-month stay in the facility wherein they would be rehabilitated under the Therapeutic Community (TC) program of the NMWRC.
