Drug rehab programme attracts 500 applicants on first day
As many as 500 drug addicts applied for the drug-rehabilitation programme when it was launched yesterday, Public Health Minister Wittaya Buranasiri said, adding that the goal was to have at least 400,000 drug addicts join the programme voluntarily by next year.
Presiding over the launch of programme, Wittaya said the drug problem in Thailand had become more severe, threatening people's security of life and property. Approximately 1.3 million drug users were identified this year alone, which is six times higher than the international standard. He said that up to 60 per cent of the drug problem was concentrated in Bangkok and its vicinity, which is why the government is making this part of the national agenda and will uphold the principle that drug abusers were patients in need of rehabilitation.
Wittaya said the ministry has prepared drug rehabilitation centres at 928 community and district hospitals, adding that the first day of the campaign yesterday attracted 500 applicants, which far exceeded the target of 300 applicants. Read more...
