ABSTRACT Este artigo apresenta uma revisão crítica da literatura sobre a relação entre adolescência, família e uso abusivo de drogas. Discorre sobre a importância da inserção do sintoma drogadicção no contexto familiar e sociocultural para o entendimento de sua complexidade. A família é vista como uma das fontes de socialização primária do adolescente, juntamente com a escola e o grupo de amigos. As práticas educativas e os estilos de criação da família, com seus três diferentes tipos de controle parental, são ressaltados porque podem facilitar, ou não, o uso abusivo de drogas. Os resultados das pesquisas apontam para a importância de se engajar a família no tratamento do adicto e alguns estudos ampliam o foco para engajar contextos sociais múltiplos - família, amigos, escola, comunidade e sistema legal - no tratamento do adolescente que faz uso abusivo de drogas.

    ABSTRACT: The family has been undergoing uncountless changes along the last decades, specially regarding its structure. Thus, nowadays, it has become subject to various kinds of adjustments. However, the basic functions of the family institution, the process of the psychological development of its members, remain the same. In view of this reality, adolescence and family relations have been the focus of a number of studies. The purpose of this research was to present a systematization of the results obtained through a bibliographic study involving two themes: family and adolescence. The referenced literature points out that the changes which occurred in the society, in the family structure and, in the way parents were raised have caused difficulties as regards the children's education, specially in the adolescence. Moreover, the early sexual initiation and drug addiction problem have been a concern to parents. It was concluded that more research should be conducted on family issues and adolescence, taking into consideration issues such as sexuality and substance abuse.

    ABSTRACT: BACKGROUND: Drug use among adolescents has been investigated in several recent studies. Family is recognizably both a protective and a risk factor for substance use during adolescence. OBJECTIVE:This present article is a literature review on family aspects of female adolescents who are drug abusers and/or psychoactive drug dependents to gather information available on this issue for capacitating heath providers in clinical care and prevention of this syndrome. METHODS:A literature review was conducted in MedLine (Index Medicus), SciELO, PubMed using the following key words: addiction, drug abuse, girls, adolescence and family. RESULTS:The families of these adolescents were found to be mostly dysfunctional characterized by conflictive family relationships, poor family cohesion, ill-defined hierarchy, and negative parental role modeling for drug use. Gender differences were also remarkable: girls need more family support than boys to protect them against deviant peer group involvement; they are also more vulnerable to psychological rather than physical abuse while boys suffer more from physical abuse. Notably, support from older female siblings is a protective factor against substance abuse in girls. Transgenerational transmission and parental style are also addressed. DISCUSSION: Drug abuse in girls has been little investigated and there have been few studies specifically focusing on the association between dependence and girls.
