This leads to uncontrolled development in the teenage years mechanism of pathological addictive behavior on the basis of which can then easily be navigated to chemical addictions (smoking, alcoholism, drug addiction).

The single purpose of preventive educational activities is the formation of adaptive coping strategies and coping resources of adolescents and young people that are at the heart of personality’s resilience.
