Abstract
In India, Drug problem is not a new phenomenon. India could well be called the first drug culture in the world. The frequency of drug abuse today is much more than ever before. National sample survey (1975) found that with the rise in per capita income the expenditure on intoxicants in society has increased. The problem of drug use among youth has reached epidemic proportions (Sethi and Manchanda, 1977). India has become a country of drug culture. They use drug on awakening (coffee or tea), and to reduce pain (aspirin). The study centres around drug taken by young generations & its psychopathological effect on their affective state in terms of aggression, frustration, anxiety and adjustment. Youth have become maladjusted due to unemployment, living away from home, relaxed parental controls etc. The environments most conductive to drug use are large cities, especially areas where crime and vice are common and drugs are easily available. They lack adjustment. It refers the degree of harmony between individual &its surroundings. Total 400 (200 Drug users and 200 Non-drug users) were taken from different four colleges situated in Darbhanga commissionary area. The age range of sample were from 18 to 25 years with an average age range of 22 years. The purposive sampling technique with regards to psychoparameters such as adjustment, anxiety, frustration and aggression was adhered during sample selection time.
