LINS, Emerson Feitosa; BARBOSA, Kevan Guilherme Nóbrega  and  RIBEIRO, Mara Cristina. Perception of psychoactive substance use in university students: an integrative review. Mudanças [online]. 2020, vol.28, n.2, pp. 77-84. ISSN 0104-3269.

The research aimed to integrate the knowledge related to the perception of university students regarding the risks in the use and abuse of psychoactive substances. The objective was to verify if the perception in relation to risk could be a factor that contributes to the use, as well as the proximity with colleagues and belonging to groups that make use of these substances. The steps of an integrative review were followed. 27 studies were included because they were in accordance with the established criteria. The findings suggest that there is a significant association between the way the university student perceives risks and his pattern of drug use, as well as the relationship he establishes with peers and other colleagues. Another relevant aspect was the evidence on the use of substances that can only be acquired with a medical prescription and that are used indiscriminately to increase academic performance.
