    deviate from the routine of daily life.

    These days, the number of young people taking drugs is on the increase ... Watching scenes where entertainers who are their objects of envy take drugs, young people come to have fantasies. This can cause them to be curious about drugs. Besides, people sometimes hope to deviate from the routine of daily life. Drugs can be a tool for such deviation.

    Even if you say just "deviation" or "deviate",can it convey the same meaning as the first line?

    => people sometimes hope to deviate (people sometimes hope for deviation.)

    I'd assume that "deviate" alone wouldn't make much sense.

    You cannot use a string of commas in English.
