Students from several study programmes and courses participated in the study. The following method was used for the study – questionnaire of various faculty programs and course students as well as the analyze of their responses. A questionnaire was applied with a purpose to identify the impact of social environment for drug addiction. The purpose of this paper is to explore whether there is a relation between drug addiction and certain social factors, such as family, school, neighborhood, media (whether these factors prevent the usage of drugs). Also, it is aimed to share results of the study with researchers and officers and to provide them with some recommendations for further actions. The study’s results revealed that the community of school and gymnasium as well as the environment, surrounding a teenager, could prevent the spread of drug among pupils.
