Title: PEER-Drive Clean!
Summary: Especially for young people and young adults, drug consumption represents a clear, and in many European countries, an increasing health hazard. In this context, "alcohol behind the wheel" is a dramatic problem. The target group young people and young adults is also the focus of “addiction prevention” and “traffic safety”. But precisely the 15 to 24-year-olds are difficult to reach with prevention messages. With “PEER Drive Clean!" professional knowledge and resources from different fields (addiction prevention, health promotion, traffic safety) are bundled intelligently. In the course of "PEER Drive Clean!“ in the model regions, independent PEER education projects will follow, which will inform and enlighten young people and young adult driving school students and beginning drivers about the dangers of alcohol/drug consumption and driving. According to the European driving licence guideline, all drivers must pass an examination before they are issued a driving licence. Despite the comparatively high costs of driver education and testing, young people are highly motivated to receive their driving licence at the earliest possible point in time. In order to take advantage of this high motivation to learn, the independent partial projects of “PEER Drive Clean!” should be placed so that the target group is reached as close as possible time-wise (in the best case shortly before) to the granting of the driving licence. In 60 to 90-minute PEER lessons, trained PEER educators work with young people. Together with the driving students and beginning drivers, individual and manageable strategies and rules will be developed for their driving participation. Young drivers should thus be enabled to prevent dangerous driving while intoxicated. >>

Title: FeierFest! – Leisure time and party culture for young people. Pilot project for the implementation of a new festival and party culture for young people in the EuRegio-region Salzburg/Bavaria
Summary: The project „FeierFest!“ was designed by Akzente Salzburg and implemented together with partners from the cross-border regions Salzburg (Austria), Berchtesgadener Land and Traunstein (both in Germany). The aim was the prevention of risky consumption patterns among young people in their nightlife and leisure time activities. The focus was especially on alcohol use. Concepts and products for nightlife settings and different hosts of events, parties etc. were developed, which support and promote the implementation of an addiction-preventive party culture for young people. Among these products is the manual “Feier-Leitfaden”, which helps during the planning and organization phase of preventive festivities. Another focus of the project was the raising of awareness about child-welfare regulations and the compliance to them. >>

Title: Intensive community-based care for complex addiction problems
Summary: Intensive community-based care programmes were developed for people with chronic and complex problems (often including drug addiction) and may cover a wide range of services (e.g. health care, mental health care, social work, financial support). The general aim of intensive community-based care is to reduce harms for clients, for their direct enviroment and for society. Many of these care programmes exist nowadays in the Netherlands but they differ substantially in many aspects. The effectiveness of intensive community-based care remains unclear, mainly due to poorly description practices concerning the content of this care programmes. Therefore, an instrument has been developed for determining and validating specific aspects that apply to several programmes. These aspects are meant to facilitate: 1) description of these programmes; 2) comparison between (effectiveness of) these programmes and 3) explaining effective ingredients (aspects) of programmes. The ultimate aim of this project is determining short-term and longer term effectiveness of these programmes, to offer useful insights for professional training, and for guideline construction. >>
