VINHA, Iris Renata. Health Care Setting in Mental health /Psychoactive substance use in the Piracicaba Health Area, São Paulo, Brazil. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2011, vol.7, n.1, pp. 25-31. ISSN 1806-6976.

The use of alcohol and other drugs has been a problem in Brazil. The purpose of this study was to characterize the health care delivered to Drug Users in the Piracicaba Health Area. To do this, a survey was performed on the Health Ministry Information System (DATASUS). It was found that costs increased approximately 100% since 2003 at the study location, especially in cities with psychiatric hospitals (Araras and Rio Claro). Although it is known that hospitalizations due to Mental Disorders account for only a part of the exiting cases, these data may serve to program and manage mental health care.
