Summary The programme aims to increase the responsibility in the community for the youth and to promote smoke and alcohol free lifestyle among adolescents. The purpose of the project is to increase knowledge on alcohol related social pressure among youth and educate adolescents the skills to refrain from smoking and alcohol consumption.
Background The together against alcohol and smoking programme is a school and community based programme to prevent smoking and alcohol abuse among adolescents in the District of Pikäranta in the Republic of Karelia, Russia.
Objectives The aim is achieved by organising lessons and activities in school concerning the reasons for and consequences of smoking and alcohol abuse and teaching practical skills in handling social pressure. Also the role of community (school, teachers and parents) in supporting smoke and alcohol free lifestyle among adolescents is enhanced. This is aimed at by organising, out of teachers, parents, school healthcare personnel and peers, support group networks that together agree on policies concerning smoking and alcohol consumption in and around schools. School activities will be supported by different media activities in the area.
