Abstract: Drug addiction is one of the most important social, economic and political issues in Lithuania. It is becoming more and more widespread and younger and younger people are using drugs. Other social issues like AIDS, prostitution, suicides, violence, black money, crime, smuggling, and human trafficking are also related to drug addiction problem. According to mental health centre, every year in Lithuania it is registered more and more people that have a drug addiction problem. Health care institutions have only the records of the addicts who came for help or were registered under other circumstances and the real numbers are not known (National drugs checkup and drug prevention program, 2004—2008). In 2003 in Vilnius district 69 031 individuals having addiction problems were registered, 4689 — having drug addiction problem. The biggest numbers of drug addicts were in Vilnius — 2114, that's 45 % of all the registered drug addicts in the country. In the year 2003 135,2 drug addiction cases were registered for every 100 thousand people living in the country. 48 registered drug addicts died in 2003 because of the drugs. Psychological and social research work done in these latter years shows that the most vulnerable part of society is children and youth. Children don't have a lot of life experience and they can easily fall into the trap and start using the drugs. Curiosity, contemporaries influence, lack of activities, alienation in the family are the main causes of the first time for the drug usage. Gradually it turns into a habit and that's how the addiction develops. According to M. Gossop, for the bored teenager drugs give the excitement and also the perspective of being recognised. Drug addiction in our country is the youth problem and drugs are part of their life. If you analyse the statistics, the biggest threat for our society is that younger and younger people use the drugs
