Title: 'PROTEGO, family training in educational skills for drug prevention'
Summary: ''PROTEGO', family training in educational skills for drug prevention' is a selective family prevention programme developed by PDS 'P.D.S. – Promoció i Desenvoluapment Social / Promoción y Desarrollo Social'. It consists of eight 2-hour sessions for groups of 12-15 parents of 9-13 year old children and adolescents. PROTEGO is a selective family training program in educational skills for drug prevention. PROTEGO is a specific program aimed at parents of adolescents at risk to abuse drugs. By developing and enhancing parenting skills, the program focuses on addressing risk factors and family protection, since, through the educational activities, parents can influence decreasing other risk factors. PROTEGO is a relatively long and intensive program and applied in small groups of parents from families characterised by the cumulative presence of risk factors. The program takes place over the course of 8 sessions in which we work directly with families in a neutral space. The purpose of the work is to provide direct educational skills to such families for better development of family relationships. Target group Families (parents) with adolescent children (9-13 year olds) with risk in parents or children and a history of behaviour or school problems which did not require therapeutic intervention. PROTEGO is based on the socio-ecological model of drug prevention and health promotion, that focuses on personal and environmental factors as targets for prevention interventions. According to this model, appropriate interventions in the family environment will produce changes in children. PROTEGO has been widely used since it was first developed and implemented by PDS on 2001, and has been adapted to be implemented in different social and cultural environments. There is a Romanian translation and adaptation of PROTEGO, a Latin American adaptation of the program that was developed as a component of an URB-AL project (R1-P3-98) and used in the municipalities involved in the project: Buenos Aires (Argentina), Medellin (Colombia), Montevideo (Uruguay) and Santo André (Brasil) and a specifically version for Bolivia. >>

Title: ‘La Aventura de la Vida’
Summary: The aim of ‘La Aventura de la Vida’ (Life’s adventure), which targets children from the ages of 8 to 12, is to further healthy living habits, stressing the prevention of tobacco, non-prescription drugs and alcohol use in the context of the worldwide network of Health Promoting Schools. ‘La Aventura de la Vida’ is designed to respond to teachers' need for a structured, readily implemented and motivating programme to broach health education in the classroom. The programme addresses the physical, mental and social dimensions of health and relates the educational activities proposed to other subject areas, such as harmonious co-existence or environmental education. While implemented primarily in the school environment, the programme extends outward from there to families and the community at large. This programme: • is based on what has been internationally proven to be the most effective theoretical model: teaching living skills; • targets an age group (8 to 12) of particular preventive significance, both for its position in the antechamber of the potential introduction to drug use and its high receptivity and plasticity to the shaping of lifestyles; • exerts considerable social impact, and is widely and continually implemented across our education system. >>

During this visit, which is always given by an Specialist on Smoking Treatment, the clinical and smoking history is taken, and various tests are performed: measurement of CO in expired air, spirometry and measurement of cotinine levels in body fluids. The follow-up visits are held at 1st, 2nd, 4th, 8th, 10th and 12th weeks, then 4th, 6th and 12th months after quit-date, and are all independently conducted by Healthcare Professionals Specialist on Smoking Treatment.

Title: Help yourself and help us: Integration of self-help groups that belongs to the Federation of ex-alcoholics from Madrid into an alcoholism treatment program delivered in the Spanish Health Public System.
Summary: Integration of self-help groups that belongs to the Federation of ex-alcoholics from Madrid into a alcoholism treatment program delivered in the Spanish Health Public System (Project Help yourself and help us) Self-help groups like Alcoholics Anonymous and Rehabilitated Alcoholics have shown its effectiveness in engaging alcoholic patients into treatment. However these techniques are not been usually included in the alcoholism treatment programs delivered in the Spanish Health public system. The Federation of ex-alcoholics in the Community of Madrid has a network of self-help centers spread throughout the Madrid’s region where alcohol-dependent patients and their families receive attention. Self-help groups delivered in this network aim to ensure that alcoholics and their relatives can learn basic skills for preventing alcohol relapses. The aim of this study was to demonstrate that the integration of these facilities as a component of a public alcoholism-treatment program could improve the outcome of alcoholic subjects and the psychological condition of their relatives. Methods: We selected patients and relatives who came to our treatment program at “Hospital 12 de Cctubre” in 2010 and were randomized into two groups: Group A (Standard program for patients and relatives delivered at our facility) and Group B (Experimental treatment program for patients and relatives delivered at an self-help center and standard program for patients delivered at our facility) . A total of 94 patients included in the group A received a standard relapse prevention program during 12 weeks. Theirs relatives (n=94) attended some interviews with the patient (3-6 visits during the treatment period) where a psychiatrist explained them several aspects of the alcohol dependence and were offered the opportunity to request assistance during the treatment period. In the other group (Group B, n = 94) patients were also included in a relapse prevention program but their relatives attended to family groups delivered at an self-help group center next to our facility (10 sessions). Results: After 12 weeks, alcoholics and their relatives included in group B achieved more improvements that participants treated in our standard program. Patients belonged to group B had fewer drinking days and less dropout rates during the treatment period that patients treated exclusively in our program. Conclusions: Our results support that psychological interventions delivered at self-help centers are useful in improving rates of efficacy and also psychological conditions of relatives of alcoholic patients who are treated at a public alcoholism program treatment. The integration of these centers within public alcoholism treatment programs could provide a new way to treat alcoholism, based on collaboration of public facilities and patient associations. >>
