Title: Trampoline (German: "Trampolin")
Summary: Background: A strong risk factor for developing substance use disorders (SUD) in adolescence or early adulthood is a family history of SUD. Children of substance-abusers (COS) also are at risk for a variety of other psychosocial development problems. Prevention programs for COS typically combine psychoeducation on substance use in the family with exercises and group activities aimed at enhancing children’s emotional and practical coping in daily life. Even though the number of studies on prevention programs for COS is small, there is preliminary evidence for the effectiveness of these programmes. However, empirical support for the usefulness of including education components in preventive efforts for COS is lacking to date. Objectives: The study at hand tests the effectiveness of the group programme TRAMPOLINE for children aged 8-12 years with at least one substance-abusing or -dependent caregiver. The intervention is specifically geared to the issues and needs of COS. Specifically, we explore the role of psychoeducation on children’s well-being by comparing the effects of TRAMPOLINE to an intervention for COS that is very similar with regard to setting, dose, and trainer qualification, but does not include addiction-related content or activities. We hypothesize that addiction-specific education, activities and role play will enhance the effectiveness of a prevention program compared with a prevention program without educational components. Methods: The effectiveness of the manualised nine-session group programme TRAMPOLINE was tested among N= 218 children from substance-affected families in a multicenter randomised controlled trial. 27 outpatient counseling facilities across Germany delivered the interventions. Data was collected shortly before and after as well as six months after the intervention. Children reported on parental substance use, stress level and coping strategies, self-worth, self-efficacy and satisfaction with the intervention, relationship quality with the parent, addiction-related knowledge and health-related quality of life. Parents or primary caregivers reported on psychological stress, their own substance use, relationship quality with the child, sensitivity for children’s needs, assertiveness regarding their own parenting competence, parenting style, child coping strategies and child behavior. Employing an intent-to-treat approach, we compared mean values over time and between groups with baseline-adjusted linear mixed models. Results: The mean age of the children at baseline was 9.79 (SD = 1.87) years, 52% were male, 11% indicated another than the German nationality. Both intervention and control group showed significant improvements after six months in the areas of avoidant coping, mental distress, cognitive capabilities, peer acceptance, self-worth, self-concept and quality of life regarding relationship and autonomy with parents compared to baseline. Significant group differences were found in the areas of knowledge, mental distress, and social isolation. Discussion/Conclusion: While COS benefited from both an intervention with and without addiction-related content and activities, participants in the addiction-specific group program showed superior outcomes. Therefore, knowledge appears to be an important empowerment and self-understanding toolthat provides relief by ameliorating children’s misconceptions and thereby reduces anxiety and social isolation. Future interventions should further explore essential ingredients that make preventive interventions for COS effective. >>

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: FreD goes net — Early intervention for young drug users.
Summary: FreD goes net is the European development and transfer of the German project ‘FreD — Early intervention in first-time drug offenders’. Structurally, one aim of the project is thus to establish cooperation between the institutions and individuals involved, thereby stabilising the support system by bringing together different institutional tasks. In particular, cooperation between police, judicial authorities, GOs and NGOs active in the field of drug treatment and support is to be established and maintained in the long term. At a behavioural level, the course (intake interview and eight hours of group intervention) aims to encourage young drug consumers (illicit or legal drug) to reflect on and possibly change their consumptive behaviour in order to stop them from drifting into dependency. FreD goes net were implemented in 11 of 12 pilot countries. Altogether, 17 countries of the European Union are involved. >>
