SANTANA, Gliciane Vasconcelos et al. Sociodemographic and chemical-dependency profile of users at a specialized Psychosocial Care Center. SMAD, Rev. Eletrônica Saúde Mental Álcool Drog. (Ed. port.) [online]. 2021, vol.17, n.4, pp. 7-13. ISSN 1806-6976.

OBJECTIVE: to identify the sociodemographic and chemical-dependency profile of users at a Psychosocial Care Center - Alcohol and Other Drugs. METHOD: a retrospective and cross-sectional study carried out by referring to 360 medical records. RESULTS: the majority of users were males (91.1%, n = 328), illiterate/Elementary School (70.8%, n = 255), without a partner (76.9%, n = 277), and lived in urban areas (63.3%, n = 228). Simultaneous use of multiple drugs was found in 43.5% (n = 157) and exclusive alcohol dependency in 40.4% (n = 146). CONCLUSION: the predominance of single men with low schooling and dependency on multiple drugs and/or alcohol was found. This knowledge is relevant to evidence-based strategy proposals.
