Introduction: Drug is any chemical substance capable of interacting with a living organism and, from the medical point of view, used for the treatment, prevention, cure or diagnosis of diseases.
Objective: To characterize the consumption of toxic substances in adolescents of the "Arístides Viera González" Preuniversity Institute.
Methods: A descriptive-transversal observational study was carried out. The universe consisted of 187 students belonging to the "Arístides Viera González" Preuniversity Institute, in the period January-December 2021.
Results: Female sex predominated (55.08%), being 16 years old the most frequent age (42.9%). In terms of toxic habits, consumers of other toxic substances such as cola predominate (53.47%). 64.17% of students refer that at school they are educated about the damage caused by toxic habits and 42.78% of students agree that the family constantly talks to them about the benefits of leading a healthy life and that if there can be fun without toxic habits.
Conclusions: One of the major public health problems is the consumption of toxic substances. There was a predominance of female students and of students who consume other toxic substances such as cola. Most of the students state that they are educated at school about the harm caused by toxic substances and that the family exerts great influence on them to lead a healthy life. There is a predominance of students who believe that there can be no fun without substances.

Introduction: Higher Education institutions seek to achieve institutional quality and influence student satisfaction. This is a feature that deserves an analysis that brings it closer to the particularities of the training of health students. Well, although it is a frequent topic under discussion, university demands increase.
Objective: Analyze current theoretical conceptions about student satisfaction and institutional quality of life in Higher Health Education.
Method: Integrative review for a critical and reflective analysis of contents of documents published between 2017-2023 with a methodology and theoretical reference. Keywords identified in DeCS and MeHS and Boolean operators were used: “higher education policy AND “health education” AND “universities” AND “medical education” AND “health students”, AND “accreditation”. The search strategy was carried out in the Índex, SciELO, Redalyc, Dialnet databases. The flow chart (PRISMA) was used to formulate the search strategy, 102 articles were identified and reviewed, of which 11 were useful regarding the evolution of the category. The following inclusion criteria were considered: original or review studies, available in full text, that declared the methodology applied, published in English and Spanish.
Conclusions: The conceptions of student satisfaction and institutional quality in Higher Health Education reveal the starting point for research. They show the complexity of the categories, which prevents delving into each independent one, and proportional relationships. Operational definitions are offered that contain the relationships.
