Measures which aim to limit young people’s opportunities to participate in addictive behaviours by restricting the production and sale of substances or the provision of gambling services
Statutory measures that ban (young) people from participating in addictive behaviours in certain locations. For restrictions on where alcohol and tobacco may be sold and gambling services offered, see the section on control and regulation of supply. For voluntary (smoking) bans, see the sections on prevention (for schools) and harm reduction (for self-imposed restrictions at home).
Measures that define a legal minimum age that young people must reach to be able to participate in addictive behaviours.
Control of taxation and pricing to reduce young people’s participation in addictive behaviours
Statutory or voluntary measures to control or regulate advertising, marketing and sponsorship activities in relation to addictive goods and services.
Labelling of addictive goods and services with (health) warnings
Prevention programmes implemented with schools pupils, families and/or communities
Intervention in populations that are treatment-seeking or meet diagnostic criteria for dependence. Social reintegration interventions are those that aim to integrate former or current problem drug users into the community
Approaches which do not necessarily seek to prevent or reduce young people’s participation in addictive behaviours per se, but whose primary aim can be seen as the reduction of harms resulting from young people’s own or others’ participation in addictive behaviours.
Meta approaches that provide the necessary context and infrastructures to facilitate the high quality implementation of effective policies and interventions
