Abstract(s)The aim of the present work was to verify if school textbooks respect the national programme and to analyse how they approach the contents concerning the prevention of drugs abuse. Results showed that drugs are mentioned at the primary school: at years 1 and 3 (6 and 8 years old) but in a very superficial approach. At years 6 and 9 (11 and 14 years old) these contents are largely treated. Later, at year 10 (15 years old) only tobacco and alcohol are vaguely referred. Text and images generally fit the Biomedical model as far as the pathologic and preventive approaches are concerned.
