This article has as an objective to value, from the perspective of the relationships among science, technology and society, the scientific-technological trajectory of the proposal of a “Theoretic-methodological model for the prevention of drug manifestations at the youthful environments of the province of Camagüey”. With this work, it is contributed to the study of the social conditioning of the development of the Science of Social Prevention, such as: the political, the judicial, the ethical and the scientific ones; and of its impact in the solution of a harmful problem from the viewpoint of the social and individual’s health, and which is affecting a non-significant group of the Cuban youth. The scientific result that was obtained by the proposal of preventive actions has practical importance when putting in the hands of socializing institutions, educative agents and the Ministry of Interior in Cuba, a working tool that integrates the actions and makes possible performing a more integral labour in relation to the social prevention of drugs manifestations in youthful environments. The work has three parts: firstly, it will be clarified what the above-mentioned perspective consists of, with which the valuation will be performed; secondly, it will be paid special attention to the construction of the Science of Prevention in both its social context and its diverse conditionings; and lastly, it will be showed the social impact of that model that it’s being proposed in this investigation.
