Abstract: in the article the authors discuss the problem of teenager`s addiction on low-alcoholic drinks.

The diagnostic examination of 420 teenagers living in the southern areas of the Tyumen region was held to study the intensity of the spread of this phenomenon, and it included Golyshmanovsky, Abatsky, Omutinsky, Ishimsky, Vikulovsky, Armizonsky and Sorokinsky areas. We used the following methods: the questionnaire “Addictive tendency” (V. Yusupov) to identify the risk of teenager`s involvement in addictive processes, mostly – the addiction to psychoactive substances, including low-alcohol drinks; the method of K.K. Yakhin and V.D. Mendelevich of studying the dissimulation of symptoms of the addiction to alcoholic drinks and diagnosing the initial signs of this addiction; the method of O.O. Andronnikova to determine the propensity for victim behavior.

The test study allowed identifying teenager`s groups with different attitudes to the using of low-alcohol products as well as their personal characteristics that affect for attitudes to alcohol.

The results of the analytical processing of the data of diagnostic techniques have led to make the conclusion that it is necessary to organize a scientific study aimed at  looking for new effective ways of preventing the teenager`s addiction to low-alcohol drinks by using the innate dynamic properties of a person and psychological resilience as an example.
