Abstract [en]

Research conducted in USA says that drug prevention is a successful method against chemical dependency and should be a part of the curriculum in all schools. The need for evidence based methods is increasing. Little research has been done on the subject in South Africa and other third world countries, hence the need for this research. There is unquestionably substance abuse amongst South African students. The organisation SANCA provides a school based prevention program called T.A.D.A. A quantitative study was made where questionnaires were used to collect data from 4 schools in Port Elizabeth, South Africa to see, if T.A.D.A was effective. The results of the study were not sufficient enough to draw any conclusions about the efficiency of the T.A.D.A program. However an overview was given on the substance use amongst adolescents.
