Abstract
Drug abuse is the world’s major health concern and has reached epidemic proportions. Youth are the asset of the nation and very often they become drug-abusers and drug addict. They have various reasons such as frustration with life, peer pressure, just for fun or even a rebellion gesture towards the norms of civil society, any one is good enough to led them to the world of drugs. In recent years, the problem of drug abuse among youth has reached epidemic proportions. India has become a country of drug culture. They use drug on awaking (coffee or tea), throughout the day (cigarettes, certain soft drinks) as a way to relax (alcohol) and to reduce pain (aspirin). In our youth group become more attractive toward substance abuse and different types of drug for pleasure and entertainment. They do not know the impact of substance and drug abuse. Drug abuse can lead to drug dependence or addiction. Drug dependence arises out of a maladaptive pattern of substance use, leading to a cluster of behavioural, cognitive and psychological phenomenon that develops after repeated intake. It includes a strong desire to take the drug, difficulties in controlling its use, persisting in its use despite harmful consequences. Higher priority is given to drug use than other activities and obligations, increased tolerance, and sometimes a physical withdrawal state.

The age ranges of sample were from 18 to 25 years with an average age range of 22 years. The purposive sampling technique was adhered during sample selection time.
