The goal of the current research is to identify the sensation of freedom among students of Preparatory and to identify the statistical differences according to gender and specialization, as well as identifying the level of the trend toward drug taking among students of fifth Preparatory according to gender and specialization. Thus, its aim is to identify the relationship between the sensation of freedom and the trend towards drug abuse.
The current research sample included 400 students from the fifth preparatory students (scientific and literary specializations). In order to achieve the objectives of the research, the researcher built a sensation of freedom scale consisting of three fields and built a scale about the trend toward drug abuse composed of three areas as well.
The validity and reliability of the standard characteristics of the two scales has been calculated. The validity has been calculated in two ways: Honesty and sincerity of virtual construction, as consistency has been verified in three ways: the re-test and Cronbach Alpha and midterm retail.
The researcher has applied the scale on the sample and after the collection of the data and treating them statistically using a number of statistical methods like ‘Altaúa test’ for one sample and two independent samples and ‘Pearson correlation coefficient’. The researcher reached the following results:
Fifth Preparatory students own a high sense of freedom and males got higher sensation of freedom than females and that there are differences that are statistically significant according to the variable of specialization (scientific – literary) and in favor of scientific specialization, and there are negative attitudes towards drug abuse with the presence of statistically significant differences in favor of males and scientific specialization, and there are significant relationship statistically between the sense of freedom and the trend towards drug abuse among students of fifth Preparatory School.
In light of these findings, the researcher has developed a number of recommendations and suggestions.
