The 3-day conference under the topic of "community-based substance use intervention" provided an opportunity for the participants to exchange knowledge and experiences on drugs. The conference was also aimed at educating the Thai officials about drug epidemic and prevention. It provided guidelines of how to prevent drugs from abusing Thai youths by using the community itself.
About 350 Thai and foreign officials and academics from around the world attended the conference.
As Thailand is to enter the ASEAN Community which is to be realized in 2015, drugs can be spread and transferred easily in and out the country. Therefore, both Thailand and foreign countries need to work together to eradicate the problem as it is a threat to all nations.
