PINHEIRO, Bruno de Oliveira; ANDRADE, André Luiz Monezi  and  MICHELI, Denise De. Relationship between levels of physical activity and quality of life in drug use in teenagers. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2016, vol.12, n.3, pp. 178-187. ISSN 1806-6976.

Due to the increasing drug use among teenagers, this study aimed to evaluate the actual contribution of physical activities as a method of preventing drug use, considering the quality of life indices and patterns of consumption of these substances. The study was conducted with 754 teenagers between 14 and 18 years old. High consumption rates of psychotropic substances, energy drinks, ergogenic substances and low levels of quality of life were found among teenagers with high levels of physical activity. In general, carrying out educational interventions on substance use in general is suggested, for teenagers who practice physical activity, their families and coaches.
