Insertion professionnelle et consommation de substances psychoactives de participants à des soirées de musique techno en Bretagne

Abstract : Risk reduction is a prevention step for drug using. This practice is intended for festive participants and has been applied since 2000 by charities in France. These charities work during festive events like pure electronic music events (legal as Raves or illegal as Free parties). This study compares professional insertion of people met during electro-techno parties and French population in general with INSEE, ESPAD and ESCAPAD study. Socio-demographic features and consumption have been compared to another population (festivals and Benelux electronic public). This is a prospective study with anonymous opened and closed questions. A part of the Britany’s electro-techno music events participants was included from 16 years old (as the beginning of handwork study program such as CAP or BEP) after a spoken agreement. The main selection criteria was occupational integration. The second selection criteria were alcohol or cannabis use. Between the 21th of February 2016 and the 16th of September 2017, 31 subjects were included: 21 during Rave parties and 10 during Free parties. Sex ratio was 2 men per woman. Mean age was 21,7 years old and 80% were under 25 years old. All education levels were represented, from secondary school certificate to Master’s degree. There were a few more than 16% of unemployed people, 29% of worker and about 55% students. With regard to the second selection criteria: 16 subjects had a regular consumption of alcohol (mean age of 22,4 years old), with 15 of them having a monthly consumption. Twenty-three used cannabis (mean age of 18,25 years old), with 12 using daily or almost daily. Twenty subjects out of 31 had experienced at least 10 Binge Drinking sessions during the last year. These parties give the opportunity to use psychoactive substances. People who attend them seem to be professionally integrated and acknowledge it. Rave and Free parties appear as a real fact of our society which involves a great number of peoples and is also an opportunity for the teams trained in addiction risk reduction to meet alcohol or cannabis users in their using place to inform them. This information is concerning occupational health doctors who fully consecrate their medicine to risks prevention in working places and for employed peoples.
