Introduction
The consumption of licit drugs represents global health problems. Alcohol is responsible for various illnesses, acts of violence, deaths, among other damages that affect society in general. Currently, alcohol consumption is consumed by more than half the population in the Americas, Europe and the Western Pacific (approximately 2.3 billion people). Tobacco is responsible for a large share of the world's deaths, killing more than seven million people a year. The chronic consumption of tobacco derivatives has a strong association with several non-transmissible chronic diseases, various types of cancer, respiratory, ocular pathologies, among others. Recently, there have been many controversies and discussions about the actual effectiveness of drug prevention programs. The most accepted model is prevention based on health promotion; that is, a model that foresees the reduction of risk factors and the increase of protection factors, through the empowerment of individuals and communities, so that they themselves modify the determinants of health for the benefit of their quality of life. Therefore, it is of fundamental importance to know the strategies carried out worldwide, to verify interventions that have been effective and to obtain generalization, in order to reduce and / or stop drug misuse. The most commonly used interventions are brief and motivational interventions.
