“From the Community Prevention Units of Addictive Behaviors (UPCCA) of the Valencian Community, a special prevention campaign has been launched aimed at youth and adapted to the current times of health crisis due to COVID-19 and the resulting restrictions.
The message of the campaign, to which the UPCCA of Dénia has joined, is “This summer, play”: it touches, more than ever, to be responsible.
During the pandemic, and especially during the months of confinement, drunkenness among youth decreased, from 46,2% to 25,3% in the case of men and from 41,3% to 22,8% in women . These figures represent a drop from 44% to 23%, on average.
However, the withdrawal of the state of alarm has put this progress in healthy behaviors at risk and once again increases the probability of risky consumption in leisure time.”
