Summary/Abstract: The problem of drugs, under both its main aspects, ie the supply and demand of drugs, has often been addressed in the medical or legal literature. The common ground of the two approaches seems to be the prevention of the phenomenon mainly through education. We would say mainly through formal education, which follows and complements the one in the family. However, we do not find in the specialized literature a satisfactory approach to the problem of drugs from a didactic and pedagogical perspective in order to identify the methods, techniques and means of preventing the phenomenon. This aspect is due, on the one hand, to the difficulty with which drug specialists can integrate into the world of students from various school units in order to understand it and to be able to communicate constructively with them. On the other hand, the situation arises as a result of insufficient knowledge and experience of teaching staff regarding the drug issue. We propose a study on the prevention of the phenomenon through formal education, carried out from the perspective of a minimum amount of knowledge in the field of drugs and through the prism of a sufficient period of direct observation of students from the position of teaching staff, respectively from within school units.
