Mr. Prasut Hombantheng, the Prachuap City District Chief, led the opening ceremony of the Sustainable Community Therapy Project, aligning with the government’s urgent policy to address drug-related challenges. Among the dignitaries present were Pol. Col. Phaithun Promkhian, superintendent of Muang Prachuap Police Station, Pol. Lt. Col.

Pol. Col. Phaithun Promkhian emphasized the government’s prioritization of addressing the drug crisis due to its detrimental effects on both individuals and the nation’s socio-economic fabric. Recognizing the urgency, a multidisciplinary approach involving law enforcement, public health, and other stakeholders was adopted to establish a Sustainable Community Treatment Project. This initiative aims to identify and assist individuals aged 12 to 65 struggling with drug addiction, beginning with a comprehensive survey and outreach efforts.

“In tackling drug addiction, early intervention is paramount,” stated Pol. Col.

As the ceremony concluded, the collaborative commitment to combatting drug-related challenges resonated, underscoring the collective determination to safeguard community well-being and foster a drug-free environment.
