Epidemiological data from the last decades show that these use changes, for exemple, (...) in the countries of southern Europe transfering from Mediterranean model to the Northern countries model of alcohol use. Linked to these practices is increasingly greater presence of the phenomenon of binge drinking or binge drinking among young people. ...with very negative implications on the physical and mental health of youth population that does not seem to perceive the risk that these practices entail.

Initial identified needs (native)
El alcohol y cannabis son las sustancias más consumidas en los países de la Unión Europea en todas las edades, tanto para las conductas de experimentación, como de uso y abuso. Los datos epidemiológicos de las últimas décadas muestran cambios en el uso, por exemplo, em los jóvenes y también se detecta un especial incremento del consumo en mujeres de todas las edades. Con el alcohol, en los países del sur de Europa se está produciendo un traspaso del modelo mediterráneo de consumo al modelo de los países del norte, en el que se bebe alcohol en mayor cantidad, con mayor graduación y fundamentalmente fuera de las comidas. Vinculado a estas prácticas, cada vez tiene mayor presencia el fenómeno de binge drinking o atracón de alcohol entre los jóvenes. Todo ello tiene repercusiones muy negativas para la salud psíquica y física, y la población juvenil no parece percibir el riesgo que estas prácticas entrañan. Una de las prioridades en el campo de la salud en Europa es crear lazos entre organizaciones a nivel Europeo relacionados con la lucha en la prevención y reducción de los daños ocasionados por el consumo, y este proyecto, que se realizará en España, Francia, Italia y Portugal, como países que tradicionalmente han tenido un modelo mediterráneo de consumo, pretende ser una contribución a este campo.
