SILVA, Maria da Conceição Aparecida. The role of the school in preventive actions related to the use of alcohol and other drugs by Elementary School students. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2016, vol.12, n.1, pp. 30-39. ISSN 1806-6976.

This study investigates, in the literature mentioned, the existence of sufficient educational strategies for the prevention of the use of alcohol and drugs by elementary school students in Brazil, in particular between 9 and 11 years of age (students from the third to the fifth grade). The need of this study is shown through scientific data that point to the early use of alcohol and drugs in this age group, called herein as "Preadolescence". After preparing an integrative review of the scientific literature and discovering the lack of research studies specifically aimed at this age group within the school context, our study points to the relevance of the role of the school in multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary programs of prevention against the use of alcohol and drugs.
