Report by Tamyko Ysa Figueras and Adrià Albareda Sanz on the outcomes of the second wave of the ALICE RAP Network Evaluation Survey, conducted between June and August 2014, as part of WP20 (Communication and Integration) on project integration.
The purpose of this study is to determine the social costs attributable to the abuse of alcohol, illegal drugs and tobacco, as well as of gambling for three EU countries, Poland, Portugal, and Spain (Catalonia).
The objective of this study is to inquire the ways in which different European welfare states deal with alcoholism, compulsive gambling and eating disorders. This is studied through the perceptions of these problems as expressed by two welfare professional groups, general practitioners and social workers, in three European countries: Finland, Italy and Poland.
In the present report three multidisciplinary studies are reported about effects of alcohol and cannabis marketing exposure on brain activity and drug-related cognitive processing in users of alcohol and cannabis and in controls. As was described in the Description of Work of the ALICE RAP project, the work consists of two parts. In Part I, a neuroimaging study about the effects of alcohol and cannabis marketing on brain activity is reported. Part II consists of two studies. In study 1 of part II, the immediate effect of alcohol advertisement exposure in light and heavy (but not clinically dependent) drinkers of alcohol is reported. In study 2 of Part II, immediate and long-term effects of alcohol advertisement in alcohol dependent patients are reported.
In this study we analyse a number of current major trends in drug and gambling policy in the EU. The focus is on identifying important factors that influence policy decision making and policy implementation.
