The methods used for data collection were questionnaires to the students and interviews with the teachers.

The study recommended that the ministry of the education and school authorities should provide preventive measures by checking what enters in school and also discourage students from taking drugs and also counsel those that are already taking drugs. The community and parents are important in a child’s life. They should therefore be sensitized and encouraged to participate in all programs that aim to solve the problem of drugs.
