The transtheoretical model of change (TTM) assists in changing behavior, such as drug use, and which are part of the self-efficacy for abstinence, temptation to use drugs and change processes. This study aimed to compare the self-efficacy and temptation after intervention with TTM in cocaine / crack, and the relationship of the concepts with the processes of change. We used a secondary data analysis, attended by 39 dependents of cocaine and / or crack, men and women with the tools: interview protocol, WAIS-III, MMSE, DASE, TUD and EPM. There was an increase in self-efficacy and decrease the temptation after intervention with the TTM, and found that the more self-efficacy and less temptation plus autodeliberação behavioral processes were used, counter-conditioning and aid relationships. Therefore, intervention with TTM brought expected effects that provide change in the use of cocaine / crack combined with higher self-efficacy and less temptation.
