This work is based on the focus where the problem of drugs use among the youth is under social-psychological consideration. The actual status of this problem in Russia is being discussed. The necessity of further inquiry is being argued. The results could be useful for prevention programs recommendations.
Following Dany & Apostolidis it is recommended to speak about polymorphous of drugs. The public & private spheres of this object are being considered. In the public part three contexts are discussed: medical, legal & social. In connection with investigation of the problem of drugs used among the youth the opportunities of the theory of social conception are under discussion. The dynamic approach to the analysis of social conceptions worked out by V. Duaz (so called Genovese School) is preferable. Basic principles & methodological investigation strategy of this approach are being discussed.
Keywords: drugs, the youth, social ideas, dynamic approach.
