The event this time focuses on intoxication in the Danish nightlife as well as treatment options.

In keeping with tradition, Aarhus University will focus attention on intoxicants when the “Centre for Alcohol and Drug Research” hosts the annual open house event on Tuesday 12 June at 10-15.30.

More than 300 people have signed up for the event, which this time focuses on intoxication in the Danish nightlife as well as treatment options.

Adverse effect on relatives
The limit between abuse and use of intoxicants, such as alcohol and drugs, is often quite vague and difficult to define. The Centre for Alcohol and Drug Research, which forms part of the Department of Psychology and Behavioural Sciences, will take a closer look at this particular problem.

In addition, the researchers will touch on different intoxication techniques, and they will present data from a large Danish study that has established how alcohol abuse has an adverse effect on relatives.

Treatment options
Another major area of ??research that the Centre for Alcohol and Drug Research concentrates its efforts on is treatment.

At the open house event, some of the greatest findings in the field will be presented, and young people's high consumption of alcohol and drugs will be brought into focus.

Lastly, the researchers will discuss the development of treatment programmes in prisons, and they will also take a closer look at how the police enforce drug laws and who is affected.
