Abstract


Background: Teenage people should be sensible to the drugs consumption. This attitude often is related with personal and social problems. This is a multi-social problem present for the Public health, education and families too. Objective: To characterize the teenage students from the schools “Boris Luis Santa Coloma” and “Seguidores de Camilo” in risk about the drug consumption. Materials and methods: The research was made in the schools “Boris Luis Santa Coloma” and “Seguidores de Camilo” from the “10 de Octubre” municipality in 2018. The population was separated in four groups. The group one was for professors from these schools, group two for parents from the teenage asked, the group three for the teenage students and the group four for health workers related with the selected students. Like inclusive criteria for the different groups were assumed the following. Group one and group four: be working at school for at least five years, group two: be parent for some teenage student selected and group three: student from the schools “Boris Luis Santa Coloma” or “Seguidores de Camilo” from the “10 de Octubre” municipality in 2018 who had consumed some illegal drug at least one time at life. The group one was selected according to the Snow Ball criteria and for the others groups were selected intentionally. Finally the whole group keeps formed by 21 professors, 15 health workers related with the selected students, 35 students and 35 parents from these students. Results: The teenage students have not sufficient risk perception about the drug consumption. The parent’s haven´t control for all activities that these students make out home and usually are drugs consumer too. Professors understand they haven´t all needed tools to help the teenage students. Health workers intervention was useful helping to teenage students. Conclusion: Students from the schools “Boris Luis Santa Coloma.” and “Seguidores de Camilo” are often consumer of drugs.
