Tourists and Expats in Need of Addiction Help in Pattaya and Jomtien

Pattaya attracts around 8 million visitors a year with many of these tourists drawn to the city because of its reputation for being ‘sin city’. Despite the efforts of local authorities to rebrand Pattaya as a ‘family destination’, it is still the promise of an ‘adult playground’ that is so appealing to most visitors.

Alcohol and Drug Dangers in Pattaya

Even usually moderate drinkers will tend to go overboard during their time in Pattaya – with over 3000 bars in the city there is plenty of temptation. Binge drinking is never a good idea, but most visitors manage to avoid getting into too much trouble during their stay. The biggest risk is usually to functioning alcoholics and habitual heavy drinkers who can completely lose control during their stay in Pattaya. This is because the usual constraints on their behavior are absent (e.g. work commitments and the opinion of family and friends).

As well as alcohol, it is also possible for tourists and expats to fall into the trap of illegal drug abuse while staying in Pattaya. Yaba is a type of local methamphetamine that is particularly nasty and relatively easy to obtain for visitors who know the city well. The penalties for being caught with illegal drugs in Thailand are severe – 10 years in jail if caught in possession of yaba, heroin, or ecstasy and the possibility the death penalty if the amount is above 20 grams. Even if visitors manage to avoid prosecution while using illegal drugs, the risk of running into other dangers is high (e.g. local heroin can be purer than foreigners are used and overdose is common).
