Drug Use Prevention in Poland – Selected Aspects.

The research reflecting latest tendencies in recognizing the etiology of risk-taking behaviours and efficiency of prevention, significant number of academic and methodic papers in this regards, implementation of verified foreign projects, setting up a system of recommendations of interesting domestic prevention programs, as well as favourable changes in legal regulations tackling drug use - all these factors allow to perceive the perspective of addiction prevention in Poland positively. However, one of the challenges is to prepare the teaching staff to accomplish prevention tasks effectively, particularly in case of selective and indicative prevention.

Key words: drug use; adolescence; risk behavior; prevention.
