Initial identified needs
1) scarce research on this subject in Portugal; 2) urgent need of information to intervention's design; 3) highest prevalence of licit and illicit drug use are among young people; 4) college students's age do not need permission from parents to participate in the study which contributes to the speed of it.
Initial identified needs (native)
Face (1) à escassez de investigação sobre esta temática, nomeadamente ao nível nacional, e (2) à urgência de informação neste domínio, e considerando (3) que os jovens são a população alvo prioritária no planeamento das intervenções neste domínio, optou-se por avançar o mais rápido possível com uma investigação entre estudantes universitários – por um lado, por serem jovens em faixas etárias com maiores prevalências de consumo de substâncias psicoativas lícitas e ilícitas, e por outro lado, sendo maiores de idade não necessitam de autorização dos encarregados de educação para participarem no estudo, o que contribui para a celeridade do mesmo.

Initial identified needs
According to the Portuguese National Health Plan (2004-2010), our health system has not been supported by strong scientific evidence. Considering this state of the art, this Plan suggests the maintenance of the investment that has been made in substance use prevention, focusing in the academic and scientific contribution and on programmes aimed to reduce substance use and targeted to younger groups. Moreover, the Portuguese National Plan Against Drugs and Drug Addiction (2005 - 2012) sets out the need to strengthen the technical-scientific and methodological components and increasing the efficacy and efficiency of substance use prevention programmes as one of its main purposes. According to the European Union Strategy Against Drugs (2005 - 2012) substance use prevention programmes evaluation should give clear information on strengths and weaknesses of implemented activities, promote a culture of evaluation, and develop guidelines based on scientific evidence. Despite the effort to integrate efficacy in substance use prevention agenda, the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (2007) argues that most prevention programmes are not evaluated and those that are evaluated are usually assessed in terms of process implementation rather than in terms of the outcomes that have been achieved. Many public funds in EU Member States are spent on activities such as information days, visits of experts, or of police agents at schools which not only are not evidence based but also have the potential for harm. As highlighted by Sumnall and colleagues (2006), programme evaluation is what enables us to distinguish effective from ineffective interventions and to assure that ineffective or even harmful programmes are not funded anymore. It is important to better understand how to maximize the benefits of substance prevention interventions, which can only be possible if investment in research projects for the evaluation of prevention programmes is made (Midford, 2000).

Does social behavior during adolescence a reflex of adverse early experiences? Effects of both maternal separation and environmental enrichment

Funding country

Area(s) of research
Prevention responses
Objectives
The main objective of this study is to understand the impacts of short daily maternal separation starting in two different periods o perinatal period, on social behavior in adolescent mice. Since development is an ongoing process, the imprinting consequences of early adversity are highly dependent on the “time window” in which they occur. In this study we will explore this issue using two different periods of maternal separation corresponding approximately in humans to period that some children initiate the nursery at age of five month or 3 years of age. As a second main objective we intend to explore the ability o environmental enrichment to protect from deleterious effects of maternal separation on adolescent social behavior of adolescent mice. The stimulation provided via environmental enrichment, applied early in life, alters both brain and behavior and may be beneficial for the behavior development. Studying the influence of early experiences throughout development can provide data able to be useful to design interventions to overcome the effects of certain insults.

Initial identified needs
Adverse events early in life, including maternal separation and social isolation, profoundly affect brain development and adult behavior. This may contribute to the occurrence of psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and mood disorders in genetically predisposed individuals. Rodent models of neonatal maternal separation stress frequently have been used to explore the long-term effects of early stress on changes in affective and cognitive behaviors. In fact, recent investigation provide insights that experiential factors interact across ontogeny to affect the expression of personality traits. Behaviors are influenced by what is perceived in social environment and this is very important in the period of adolescence. This is a period for emergence of personal beliefs and values, exploration of career roles and a period of transitions involving increasing independence and shifts in relationships with parents and peers. Like in adolescents humans, rats undergoing this developmental transition also show a marked increase in the amount of time spent in social investigation and interaction with peers, along withelevations in risk-taking behaviors (seeking out novel stimuli and exploring unknown areas). These behaviors have often been attributed to changes in brain structure that occur during this developmental period, notably alterations in synaptic architecture in frontal, limbic, and striatal regions. Most probably due to changes in dopaminergic system activity, particularly over activity, that is observed during adolescence relative to either childhood or adulthood. Animal studies provided evidence that brain dopamine receptors are actually overexpressed prior to puberty, receptor density decrease to adult levels thereafter. This peak seems to be more marked for D1 than D2 dopamine receptors, which suggested an upregulation of postsynaptic dopamine receptors to be typical of periadolescence in rats. This peculiar neurobiological setting may partially account for the behavioral profile shown by adolescent and may be responsible for some vulnerability to engage in risky behaviors such as drug abuse. The use of animal models not only provides an opportunity to evaluate behavioral alterations but also allows studying the neural mechanisms underlying these alterations. Undergoing developmental individual differences emerge and some individuals show behavioral vulnerabilities that can be decisive for positive or negative course of development. It is crucial to study factors across ontogeny that is able to affect the expression of personality traits that can be determinant for relationships with peers in adolescence. Social peer influences are among the strongest predictors of adolescent risk-taking behaviors, such as drug use.

Over the last decades transformations on psychoactive substance (PAS) use patterns have been observable in portuguese nightlife and outdoor recreational environments associated with nightlife (Balsa, Vidal & Pascoeiro, 2007; Balsa, 2005; EMCDDA, 2010). We have been studying how some of these outdoor environments are reflective of such changes, introducing modalities through which young people protagonize renovated ways of relating to modified states of consciousness while partying (Carvalho, 2007). One of such environments in Portugal is known not only for gathering a large international crowd of partygoers potentially using drugs, but also by investing substantially in their well-being and safety. In fact Boom Festival has, since its early editions, developed an intervention destined to care for people undergoing difficult psychedelic experiences. Starting at first in a more spontaneous way, project Kosmicare grew. Under the influence of Portugal's innovative decriminalization drug policy (Quintas, 2011; OSF, 2011; Greenwald, 2009) in 2010 a partnership was initiated between Boom organizers, the Faculty of Education and Psychology - Catholic University of Portugal at Porto and the Portuguese General-Directorate for Intervention on Addictive Behaviors and Dependencies. The purpose was to start transforming the intervention already taking place since early editions of the festival, into an evidence-based crisis intervention model in situations related to the use of psychoative substances in recreationnal settings. The projects' rationale parts from principles of harm reduction and crisis intervention models. Intervention is guided by S. Grof's principles of Crisis Intervention in situations related to unsupervised use of psychedelics (Grof, 2008). However, and following the signalling of a significant number of situations of psychopathological symptoms of project population, an attention to such symptomatology (in terms of evaluation and psychiatric care) was also integrated in the program, aimming health promotion and mental health risk minimization in situations related to the use of psychoactives and recreational settings.
