This work presents a new 3D simulation program, called Mii School, and its application to the detection of problem behaviours appearing in school settings. We begin by describing some of the main features of the Mii School program. Then, we present the results of a study in which adolescents responded to Mii School simulations involving the consumption of alcoholic drinks, cigarettes, cannabis, cocaine, and MDMA (ecstasy). We established a “risk profile” based on the observed response patterns. We also present results concerning user satisfaction with the program and the extent to which users felt that the simulated scenes were realistic. Lastly, we discuss the usefulness of Mii School as a tool for assessing drug use in school settings.
