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. >>

Title: SAPS, Creu Roja Barcelona
Summary: In Barcelona in 1992 the Olympic Games brought about big changes to the city . Amongst other aspects, health became a focus point for reflection and improvement. The use of illegal drugs in the depressed urban areas needed to be focused upon as the mortality rate was high due to acute reactions to consumption and the rate of infections equally high as a result of needle sharing and through sexual transmission. In 1990 Spain had already been sat at the top of Europe’s list for the highest percentage of HIV cases with needle sharing being the main mode of transmission; until 2003 this way of transmission was reported as having caused over 50% of the infections amongst drug users . This high incident rate could be attributed to the lack of harm reduction measures amongst injected drug users, more specifically, to the delay in setting up syringe exchange programs (which were initiated in Holland in 1984) and of a methadone maintenance treatment. The first opioid substitution treatment with methadone took place in Barcelona in 1987 and the first syringe exchange programs by ONGs were inaugurated in Bilbao and Barcelona in 1988. 3 In 1991 mobile units gave access to syringe exchange programs throughout the city. However it was necessary to create stable centres in Barcelona so as to maintain long term contact with injecting drug users (IDUs) and by March 1993 our service, SAPS Creu Roja was established. Its schedule offered night time assistance to cover basic needs such as food, washing rooms, a laundrette, condoms and injection material such as sterile syringes, sterile water and health, social and legal attention. From the first year onwards the number of visits steadily increased up until 1999. In the last three years the number of visits had been once again on the increase. In the last nine years, the rate of recuperation of syringes has been lower than the preceding years. Since the opening of the injecting room in SAPS we had less than 1% each year of acute reactions during consumption without any deaths. Whereas outside of injecting rooms more than 65 deaths per year took place in Barcelona From the beginning the service has received a large number of visits, giving evidence of the skills of the centre to make and keep contact with the target population. With intention to attend to the needs of the users, a methadone maintenance treatment was put in place in the service when the demand became increasingly high. From the first year onwards the number of visits steadily increased up until 1999. In the last three years the number of visits had been once again on the increase. In the last nine years, the rate of recuperation of syringes has been lower than the preceding years. (Table 1) The new material delivered to drug users has been one of the main responsibilities of the service. In the first years the number of syringes given conformed to the number of those returned by users in order to avoid syringes on the street that could create a danger of accidental punctures to the public and also to prevent users from sharing syringes. However since the appearance of syringe recovery programs in the streets and from a proven decline of syringe sharing between drug users , we continued the distribution of syringes despite the decrease in the number of syringes recuperated at the centre. Deaths from acute reactions to consumption are one of the main causes of deaths among young people in the world . The delivery of sterilized injection material helps prevent the spread of infections but it is not enough to avoid deaths and thus it is necessary to implement supervision in the injection rooms during usage. The first supervised injection room was opened in Madrid in 2000, the second appeared in Barcelona in Can Tunis , the most prolific area of drug dealing in the city at the time. >>

Title: Programa de Competencia Familiar (Strengthening Families Program)
Summary: The Research and Training and Social Education Group (GIFES), University of the Balearic Islands has carried out the adaptation, validation and application of our social and cultural reality of the Strengthening Families Program (SFP), a program designed for families in the United States, with very diverse cultural backgrounds. Besides the language adaptation, we conducted an adaptation redefining different concepts. In the area of discipline, for example, we redefined the limits of child punishment by rejecting corporal punishment. We have also performed a cultural adaptation. This is a program for families where one member has completed a process of outpatient treatment for addiction to cocaine or cocaine and alcohol or for people who are receiving treatment in a semi-residential therapeutic community. ‘El Programa de Competencia Familiar’ (PCF) aims to reduce risk factors and strengthen protective factors for children, promoting normality in the parent-child relationships. >>

Title: The programme is named “xkpts.com” (reader: “perquèpetes.com”). The subtitle is cannabis consumption prevention programme in youth. The original name is referred to the possible two meanings that “peta” has in Catalan at present: on one side, is the colloquial name that joint receive among catalan youth; on the other side the verb “petar” means in Catalan to explode. The idea is that the consumption of “petes” cant take you to the failure and the interrogation mark included in the name pretend that young people consider if this is really convenient.
