BERROCAL NARVAEZ, Neila Esther; OCAMPO RIVERO, Mónica  y  HERRERA GUERRA, Eugenia. Social determinants in the consumption of psychoactive substances in university students in 2016. Enfermería (Montevideo) [online]. 2018, vol.7, n.2, pp.12-35. ISSN 1688-8375.

In this article we present the results of an investigation aimed to describe the social determinants associated with the consumption of psychoactive substances (SPA) in students of a public university in Colombia, in face-to-face modality. A descriptive, quantitative, cross-sectional study was carried out with a sample of n = 341 students; stratified sampling was used, with random selection, applying the questionnaire used in the II Andean Epidemiological Study on Drug Use in the University Population, Project PRADICAN (Illicit Anti-Drug Program in the Andean Community), with prior authorization of the study participants. A descriptive analysis was carried out and the relative frequencies were calculated. The results showed that 61% of the respondents belong to the socioeconomic stratum 1, the lowest one; 77.4% are dedicated exclusively to their studies and 22.6% work in addition to studying. The relationship with their parents is good (90%). 56% have substance consuming friends and 20.5% have close relatives who use illegal SPA. The results allowed to establish that the coverage of the support programs offered by the university through University Welfare should be increased in order to positively intervene the identified determinants, design and develop strategies to generate a culture of self-care and prevention of SPA consumption.
