PREPAREDNESS, ACCEPTANCE, AND COMMITMENT AS PREDICTORS

This correlational study anchored on the Model of Community-based Treatment, and Seligman’s Positive Psychology utilized Multiple Regression Analysis to investigate the levels of preparedness, acceptance, and commitment of illicit drug surrenderers who voluntarily surrendered, enrolled, and graduated from the wellness program in a selected local government unit in Negros Occidental, Philippines and to see if these three domains are related and predictors of the efficacy of the program. The wellness program for drug surrenderers is the first step of Community Based Rehabilitation Program of the national government – a jump start to the rehabilitation of the surrenderers. Results showed that the levels of preparedness and acceptance of the respondents are “High”, whereas, their level of commitment is “Moderate”. Taken collectively, the respondents’ perceived efficacy of the wellness program is “Moderate”. There were no significant differences in the level of efficacy of the wellness program as perceived by the respondents in all aspects of their demographic profile. Respondents’ preparedness toward rehabilitation is significantly related to their perceived level of efficacy of the wellness program. Moreover, preparedness is the best predictor of efficacy. Acceptance and commitment domains are not related and predictors of efficacy of the wellness program.
