The article presents the problem about the early marginalization and its connection with criminal activity during the youth and adulthood. The analysis of empirical data on the causes of early alcohol and drug use and qualitative aspects of criminal activity points to the need to develop strategies for impact on family and friend`s environments and to overcome social exclusion.
