ELICKER, Eliane et al. Use of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs by adolescents students from Porto Velho-RO, BrazilUse of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs by adolescent students from Porto Velho-RO, Brazil. Epidemiol. Serv. Saúde [online]. 2015, vol.24, n.3, pp.399-410. ISSN 2237-9622.  https://doi.org/10.5123/S1679-49742015000300006.

Objective:

to study the prevalence of tobacco, alcohol and drug use and associated factors.

Method:

this was a cross-sectional study with adolescents attending state schools in Porto Velho-RO, Brazil; associations were investigated using multivariate Cox regression. Prevalence ratios (PR) and 95% confidence intervals (95%CI) were calculated.

Results:

the prevalence of alcohol, tobacco and other drug consumption was 24.0%, 6.4% and 2.3%, respectively; alcohol use was associated with tobacco use (PR 6.68; 95%CI 3.17;14.10;p=0.00), illicit drug use (PR 4.34; 95%CI 1.28;14.76; p=0.01) and parental alcohol consumption (PR 1.52; 95%CI 1.14;2.02; p=0.00); consumption of tobacco by parents and friends and use of other drugs by friends were associated with the consumption of these substances by the students.

Conclusion:

there is an evident need to involve schools and families in actions directed to preventing the use of these substances among adolescents.
