The validation of the program aims for Spain to have a program integrated into the Portal of Good Practices of the EMCDDA (European Monitoring Agency for Drugs and Drug Addiction). Specifically, the effectiveness evaluation phase. This phase of the program is focused on reinforcing and consolidating multicomponent elements through the relationships and agreements established with the nightlife collective, the government, the technical staff of the consistory, the social roots movement and the professionals of the prevention of damages in the city. Indications of efficacy in the literature demonstrate that multicomponent programs are the most effective (Quigg et al., 2018). STAD, a program that inspires Community Service, demonstrated statistically significant rates of reduction of alcohol assault and intoxication from the implementation of the community approach, strict compliance with laws (enforcement) and environmental prevention in nightlife venues (Wallin and Andréasson, 2005). It is clear that information campaigns that prevent damage to the nightlife space are not enough. Thefact that the staff of the premises in the actions to be implemented to implement quality leisure requires a systematic verification of its implementation and effectiveness. The final objective of this phase of the program is for Spain to have an effective, effective and efficient multicomponent quality harm prevention program in nightlife contexts to reduce the harm associated with alcohol consumption with a gender perspective.
