This article presents data on deviant behavior and the course of drug abuse among high school students. This research data is generated from the results of a survey in the field that interviewed 200 high school students in Surabaya and Malang, East Java Province. This research found that peer group, curiousity, experimenting, enjoyment and the rebellious nature of youth are the reasons that often encourage students to use drugs. It is often that their desire to become sober is hampered by the society’s judgement, the attitude of repressive parents, and a sense of attachment to the peer-group.
