Abstract

Alcohol is the most consumed psychoactive substance, particularly in adolescence, being a habitual pattern of consumption the binge drinking (BD), located mainly on the weekend, becoming one of the main public health problems. During the last months, Spain and the whole world has been immersed in the pandemic by COVID-19 which has meant the closure of all Spanish educational centers and the current online teaching scenario. The aim of this project is to present the protocol for development, implementation and evaluation of a video-based versus a text-based computer-tailored game intervention aimed to prevent alcohol consumption and BD in Spanish adolescents. A three-arm cluster randomized controlled trial is designed, with one waiting-list control condition and two experimental conditions (EC-1, EC-2), with an initial (pre-test) evaluation and two (post-test) evaluations, performed at six and sixteen months. EC-1 receives an online intervention, ALERTA ALCOHOL, with personalized health advice, using textual feedback based on the I-Change Model and several gamification techniques. EC-2 is an improved version of ALERTA ALCOHOL using animated videos and more gamification strategies. A sample of 2625 Andalusian students of 15-19 years belonging to the public or private school system is estimated. The intervention and the follow-up measurements are carried out through online classroom methods. The main outcomes are BD and other patterns of alcohol consumption. Confidentiality is ensured in accordance with European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Informed consent is requested. If the program proves to be effective, the ultimate goal would be regional and eventual national implementation.
