ABSTRACT The purpose of the study was to examine the effects of drug abuse on academic performance. The study was conducted in selected senior secondary schools in Ngora Town Council, Ngora district, Eastern Uganda. The objectives of the study were; To find out the different causes perpetuations of drug abuse among students of the Ngora Girls and Ngora Parents Senior Secondary Schools; To identify the different forms of drugs abused by students of Ngora Girls and Ngora Parents Senior Secondary Schools; To assess the impacts of drug abuse on academic performance of the students in Ngora Girls and Ngora Parents Senior Secondary Schools and to suggest the possible strategies of curbing drug abuse among students of Ngora Girls and Ngora Parents Senior Secondary Schools. The researcher employed the some discussions from the different authors, publications, magazines and all the other possible sources as the basic foundation of the research. The researcher employed the simple random sampling technique during the research when she selected the sample size of the research and here she employed both the qualitative and quantitative method of data collection. The findings indicated that both male and female were respondents with the percentage of 100 this is true because Ngora Girls and Ngora Parents Senior Secondary schools were both interviewed. It also showered that the sampled size had the majority of the respondents with age brackets of 16-19 year and of course the students. The researcher used both descriptive and analytical research designs. The research designs were appropriate because data was easily analyzed using frequency counts and percentage derived from the responses obtained in the questionnaires. From the study, it is clear that there is great demand for avoidance of drug abuse so as to save most families from break up, poverty levels, child negligence, and child school dropout. Increases chronicle diseases, leads to early marriage, low levels of education, high school drop outs, increased death rates, increased rate of ignorance, family neglect, poverty, family breakdown. In conclusion, although the problem of drugs may seem impossible to eliminate, there are concrete steps that can be taken to weaken the hold of drugs on society. The danger from drugs is too great to ignore for us and our children. Recommendations, to address all aspects of drug abuse and its harmful consequences, research program ranges from basic studies ofthe addicted brain and behavior to health services research. NIDA’s research program develops prevention and treatment approaches and ensures they work in real-world settings. In this context, Government is strongly committed to developing a research portfolio that addresses the special vulnerabilities and disparities that exist.
