This study has drawn a line on health problems, diagnostic hypotheses, psychoactive substances used and if there is or not adherence to treatment among patients treated by the CAPS. The exploratory and descriptive research with a quantitative approach was conducted through an interview with all patients (n=31) under hospitality day at CAPS before their outpatient consultations. From all of them, 35.5% were older than 41 years, 83.9% had skin color self-reported as white and 71% were single, 74.2% had completed only primary education and 48.3% had a monthly income of up to a basic wage. The main health problem identified was alcoholism and the most common diagnostic hypothesis was smoking associated with alcoholism. Most users take their medication at the right time and do not practice self-medication.
