The given article analyses the situation with drugs in the reformatories. The problem with consumption of drugs by the young drug users in the reformatories is under consideration in the given article. In the course of research the most important matters, concerning the quantitative and qualitative data of convicted addicts, conditions of imprisonment of convicted addicts, possibility of their treatment, the efficiency of the treatment are estimated in the article. In the article Iíve tried to collect the data about the young addicts and to give the analysis of their social characteristics in order to establish the most essential ways of correction and prevention of drug abuse among the young addicts in the reformatories.

Iíve used the statistic methods as the main, but also Iíve taken into account the data of the Ministry of Justice and the information, obtained during questing of imprisoned addicts, administration and the staff of the reformatories.

Iíve mentioned that the situation with drugs in the reformatories is stable and is under the control of the administration of the reformatories. There are some cases of abusing drugs but they arenít widespread. It should be stressed that the mainly drugs are revealed. In this case I believe that the preventive actions in reformatories are more persuasive than the treatment of inmates. Tertiary prevention of narcotism in reformatories is developed slower than the development of narcotism in reformatories as well as in Russia.
