At the Special Prison of Ayutthaya, inmates take part in a body building contest. The sixty participants are all drug offenders who have taken part in a special body building rehabilitation program that aims to help the former addicts become stronger, both mentally and physically. This is the first time that a prison authority in Thailand has implemented such a rehabilitation program in its prisons for offenders arrested on drug charges. Without such a program, many of the prisoners would face great pressure to return to their old habits once released back into the community.
