Via analysis of the demographics in a sample of crack users, this study aimed to contribute to the knowledge of risk factors and drivers of health vulnerability of the population studied. The study included 45 women with a mean age of 29.11 years (SD = 7.99) in rehabilitation clinical (34) and therapeutic communities (11) in the Brazilian states of Paraiba (PB) and Pernambuco (PE). As an instrument, a demographic questionnaire was used and analyzed via descriptive statistics with software SPSS / PASW version 21.0. The results showed a profile of users mostly young people of reproductive age and maternal experiences, with low levels of education and out of the formal labor market.
