dc.description.abstract The intensity of drug abuse has been a major concern in recent years. It has invaded homes, schools, and workplaces, affecting individuals of all ages and classes (UNDCP, 1992). According to the World Drug Report 2007, approximately 200 million people, about 5% of the world’s population aged between 15 and 64 years, have used drugs at least once in the previous months. According to surveys of adolescent students in Nova Scotia in Canada, carried out in 1991 and 1996, over one-fifth (21.9%) of the students reported having used alcohol, tobacco, and cannabis. The researcher used a survey study. The respondents were drawn from stratified regions. The selected regions were Coast, Nyanza, and Nairobi. The schools sampled were registered with the ministry of education science and technology. They were categorized into national, county, and sub-county schools, boys and girls, mixed boarding, and mixed schools. Questionnaire and in-depth interviews were used to collect quantitative and qualitative data from students and teachers. en_US
