    Is this composition or order of words natural?

    Re: Today, in modern societies,

    I'd choose between "In today's societies" and "In modern societies". After all, you're not talking about "In today's antiquated societies".

    Re: Today, in modern societies,

    I'm not particularly keen on "youth drug abuse". I would probably say "Drug abuse among young people" or something similar.
