Resumo

Alcohol abuse is a chronic relapsing disorder with severe health and socioeconomic consequences. The biggest hurdle in treating recovering alcohol addicts and abstinent smokers is the maintenance of a long term drug free or abstinent state, as relapse is very common. Current pharmacotherapy is considered generally ineffective in prolonging abstinence and preventing relapse to alcohol and nicotine use, while environmental enrichement (EE) has been shown to cause positive impact on drug, craving. Camarini's group has demonstrated that environmental enrichment (EE) reversed and decreased ethanol-behavioral sensitization in mice and Bailey's group demonstrated that nicotine withdrawal symptoms are attenuated during, and following moderate intensity exercise in humans. The use of EE and exercise as a cessation method for alcohol and nicotine administration has a number of advantages over other cessation methods, e.g., not invasive, cost effective, involves no pharmacological interventions and has potential for use with groups who can not use more conventional cessation aids, e.g., pregnant women. The aim of this colaborative project is to identify possible mechanisms by which enviromental enrichement and exercise may influence nicotine and alcohol related behaviours, especially addictive related ones.
