Abstract

This review aimed to explore the relationship between risk behaviors and drug abuse in adolescents. This
review was reported according to PRISMA guidelines (Selected Reporting Items for Systematic Review).
A review protocol was developed to identify all articles published investigating the relationship between
Adolescent Risk Behavior and Drug Abuse. Relationship between risk behavior and drug abuse among
adolescents; some studies measured the risk behaviors of adolescent drug users. Other studies intervened
to prevent risk behaviors in adolescents related to drug abuse. At the same time, some studies found no
significant relationship between drug-related behavior and drug abuse. Limitations on methodology are
significant in organizing the literature to see connections. This review concludes that all deviant behavior
is highly risky for adolescent health. Attitudes toward risk behavior refer to adolescents’ perception of
vulnerability to the possible negative consequences of unsafe behavior.
