The abuse of drugs, psychotropic substances and other dangerous drugs (Narcotics) in Banyumas Regency is considered very dangerous. Of course, this is very worrying considering that there are so many students who are vulnerable to drug abuse. The phenomenon of drug use by students is also found in SMA "Maju Jaya" in Banyumas Regency. This study uses a qualitative method. The location taken in this study was determined purposively at SMA "Maju Jaya" in Banyumas Regency. In this study, the target or research informants were selected based on data obtained by researchers from the National Narcotics Agency which referred to the urine test results of several “Maju Jaya” high school adolescents in Banyumas Regency who were positive for using drugs. Based on the research that has been done, it is concluded that the family background of drug users in SMA "Maju Jaya" comes from the middle class, where the education level of parents is on average high school graduates (Senior High School). The occupations of the parents of the informants in this study were mostly trading. Judging from the kinship relationship, adolescent drug users in this study have good relationships and communication with their parents. In caring for and educating their children, the parents of these teenagers use two parenting styles at once, namely democratic parenting and authoritarian parenting. The democratic parenting that parents apply to their children has the effect of good communication between them, while authoritarian parenting makes these teenagers afraid to tell their parents that they are using drugs. Apart from parenting, the environment around the house is also a factor in a teenager using drugs.
