Adolescence is a period of transformation, in which the teenager is exposed to conditions of vulnerabilities as well as situations of violence, both as victim and aggressor. This study aimed to identify the consumption of alcohol, drugs and family conflict along with situations of violence, whether in the form suffered, exercised, and both suffered as exercised. A cross-sectional study, developed in public schools in Cuiabá, Mato Grosso, with high school teenagers. The data processed by the Epi-Info, were obtained through a closed questionnaire. Between 2,786 surveyed, 44.4% were in a situation of violence, in which 16.4% were just victims, 12.0% aggressors only, and 16.0% have experienced both the condition of victims as offenders, predominating physical violence and bullying. As regards the conditions of vulnerabilities, 44.1% of those who suffered violence consume alcohol and 5.5% drugs. Regarding alcohol consuming distilled beverages, in party at the home of friends, getting excited when they drink, with beginning of consumption at 16-17 years old, stood out in all situations of violence. Regarding drugs, consume every once in a while, start the consumption because a friend offered, being the most consumed drug marijuana, mainly because they like and to get rid of the problems, beginning at the age of 16-17 years old, prevailed in all situations of violence.
