At the press con of a new film starred by Ara Mina titled 'Adik,' which centers about the drug users, the actress broke down and became emotional as the film made her remember a friend she just visited from a rehabilitation last week.

Though she did not identify, Mina shared that her 'close friend' is also battling drug addition for years that's why she really hated pushers. She also recalled how they convinced him to get help. 

"Kaya galit ako sa mga pusher kasi sinira nila iyong pamilya nitong tao na ito at marami pang pamilya," Ara Mina said, and added that she also pays for her friend's rehab fee. 

The actress said that her friend had relapsed into his crippling addiction after three years of trying to recover, he ended up again in a rehabilitation. 

"Kinausap ko sa phone bago damputin iyong asawa niya [at] naririnig ko iyon, 'Saan mo ako dadalhin?' Naka-blindfold kasi siya para hindi niya alam kung saan siya dadalhin." She recalled.

Mina then apologized for crying during the press conference and said  "Sana talaga maubos na ang mga pusher. Sorry umiyak ako. Pag-pray ninyo na lang kung sino ang sinasabi ko."
