This research was aimed to explore patterns and factors of drug epidemic among workers in small firms and to transfer research findings to practitioners in the prevention of and solutions to drug problems in small firms. Knowledge from the research would facilitate guidelines to prevent, solve and conduct the surveillance, in a sustainable manner, of the mentioned problem. The targeted group in this research included firms of less than 50 workers located in areas of severe drug epidemic, namely Bangkok and its surroundings (Central Region), Chiangmai (Northern Region), Khon Kean (Northeastern Region) and Song Kla (Southern Region). These firms were categorized into four types, namely fishery, transportation, construction and manufacturing.
The research spent six months, using qualitative techniques through in-depth interview and observation. Totally, there were 127 people involved. Among 100 people purposively sampled, 50 were owners of each type of firms while the other 50 represented rehab workers who used to work for these firms. Key informants numbered 27, including directors, social workers, psychologists, nurses, occupational therapists, carers or friends or relatives of rehab workers and community leaders.
