Abstract:

The increase of substance abuse consumption, polyconsumption, the low perception of risk by young people and the consideration of these consumptions in the context of a leisure culture and fun, constitute a serious problem for the present and future health of our adolescents. Primary Care Paediatrician (AP) enjoys an exceptional position because of his/her frequent contacts with the growing child and his/her family. Prevention of substance abuse consumption must be carried out in a comprehensive and unspecific way, as risk behaviour?s prevention, during childhood and adolescence. In this work, different possibilities of intervention on substance abuse prevention are considered from Primary Care Health.

Keywords: Prevention. Primary Care. Adolescent. Substance abuse.
