Adolescence is addressed as a life phase where the prospects for health are tremendous and future patterns of adult health are confirmed. Health in youth is the consequence of communications between prenatal and early childhood development and the precise biological, social-role, and demographical changes that accompany puberty, molded by social determinants, risk, and protective factors that affect the uptake of health-related attitudes. The model of adolescence is speedily changing; the average age of onset of adolescence is declining, and the age at which mature social roles are achieved is rising. In this work, several adolescent risk factors have been studied. Statistical data on the preference for drug consumption among adolescents was collected. Surveys were conducted, and data were gathered from ten different regions covering the world's entire demography. The health problems because of drug consumption and the consequences of drug abuse among adolescents were analyzed. The reasons for drug abuse and adolescents' age groups were statistically analyzed. A statistical report establishes the relationship among drug preference, health problems, and crime rates and demonstrates a way to reduce adolescent drug abuse and risk behavior. The report can demonstrate how demographic changes vary the risk factors, abnormal behaviors, and adolescent health problems. Details of the study will provide more information.
