In terms of transformation processes in the Ukrainian society, the problem of mass attraction of young people to the use of drugs, alcohol and tobacco, resulting in irreparable damage to health, degradation of personality, disintegration of the family and so forth, becomes of great importance. Difficult economic situation of the country, collapse of former conception of the world and immaturity leads to new problems and internal conflicts. Especially vulnerable are students of vocational schools. This is due to age-related behavior of the adolescents and youth, which is characterized by psychological difficulties. The need for social identification, choice of values, as well as of the life path, significant adults and professional selfdetermination is extremely important in this period. The article highlights the interrelation between the concepts of «risk behavior» and «addictive behavior», describes adolescents of risk groups and discloses the causes of addictive behavior among students of vocational schools. Due to the feeling of unacknowledgment in the adult world, adolescents try to prove themselves in their reference group by using various addictive agents, including psychoactive substances that can change their mental state. This leads to mental and physical dependence, which is the foundation of addictive person’s behavior. There is an opinion that the most successful strategy of reducing the use of psychoactive substances by adolescents and control of socially dangerous diseases such as alcoholism, drug addiction, toxicomania is prevention. For this reason authors emphasize the need to create a program for the prevention of addictive behavior of students of vocational schools.
