Title: Breaking the Cycle
Summary: Breaking the Cycle (BtC) is a family intervention developed to support families where parents have substance misuse problems. The intervention aims to reduce parental drug use or drinking, to improve family functioning so that children are provided with an environment in which they can thrive and to help prevent the cycle of substance misuse continuing from one generation to the next. Specifically, the intervention aims to include families in drug and alcohol treatment programmes, to help parents recognise their responsibilities towards their children and recognise the impact of their behaviour on their children, and ensure that these families are able to access the range of local services they need. BtC started with co-ordinators at three Addaction adult treatment service sites in England between 2006 and 2009, assessing families and developing care packages. The reach of BtC has expanded since then and there are now 21 sites across England. The BtC Co-ordinators provide substance misuse treatment interventions such as motivational interviewing and cognitive behaviour techniques as well as practical advice for parents on parenting skills and improving family relationships. Some co-ordinators have specialist training such as Systemic Family Therapy and the Solihull Approach. The co-ordinators also give advice to families on issues such as housing, mental wellbeing and education/employment. Finally, the co-ordinators play an essential role in ensuring that families who may be seen as ‘difficult to engage’ receive support from other local agencies, often accompanying families to appointments to help ensure they engage fully with the support available to them. The key elements of the BtC approach are: 1. BtC workers visit and work in family homes-there is no expectation that clients will attend for ‘interviews’ or sessions at a BtC office. 2. BtC workers can carry out a wide range of support work themselves, e.g., motivational support, counselling, parenting support and advice, substance misuse advice and support. 3. BtC and Addaction are not social care, and provide confidential support (with a proviso regarding child safety). 4. BtC workers have experience and expertise in substance misuse and family work. 5. BtC workers do not feel that any issue is out of their remit, and will provide support, practical advice or assistance or refer, and support into, other agencies. Over time the BtC intervention has developed to incorporate programmes such as M-PACT to ensure it provides the most effective and up to date support to families. The ongoing evaluation of Breaking the Cycle shows that the work has significant positive impacts on family life. Of the families discharged from the service in 2012/13: 73% of parents had achieved abstinence or had significantly reduced their use of substances; 74% improved their parenting efficacy; and, signs of clinical depression and anxiety decreased among 70% of adult service users. Data collection continues to develop and in 2013/14 Addaction will be able to report specifically on the impact on Breaking the Cycle on anti-social behaviour, school attendance rates, financial stability and uptake of primary healthcare services. >>

Summary: The Project “Saúde em Rede” (Health Network) was thought and created to respond to a group of necessities identified in the social diagnosis made by IDT (Portuguese Drug and addiction Institute), about Quarteira territory, and constituted the contribution of APF Algarve for improving the health and life quality of the young people from Quarteira, identified as the target audience for intervention. The diagnose produced, revealed some important gaps in the prevention of risk behaviors among young people, and the lack of specific responses, that could aim the development of resilience strategies, able to contribute positively to the noncompliance of the drug use and abuse or, for the adoption of healthy lifestyles. This project, therefore sought to create a set of activities, in an integrated approach, and coordinating with other existing resources in the community, that could answer to these identified needs, in the youth population, aged 10 to 18 years from, regarding the promotion and the acquisition of healthy behaviors concerning sexuality and prevention of drug use and abuse.

Starting in June 2009 and after the incorporation of the technical team, was developed the following activities, necessary for an efficient implementation of it: - Update the diagnosis and needs assessment by conducting focus groups with youth and families living in Quarteira; - Definition of the strategies; - Establishing the partnership protocols and procedures; - Preparation and adaptation of evaluation instruments; - Planning activities Over the two years of intervention, were implemented the following actions: - Interpersonal and social skills Program in Basic School 2.3 S.
