Resumo We studied profiles and drug histories of 294 cocaine users from 15 treatment services in São Paulo, Brazil during 1996-1997. Mean age of subjects was 27 years, and 90% were male. Over 50% had used five different substances apart from cocaine, usually tobacco, alcohol, cannabis, tranquilizers, and solvents. Mean age at first cocaine use was 18.9 years by which time 87% had snorted the drug. Thirty-two percent had injected cocaine, 82% had smoked crack, and 74% reported a full route transition. Sixty-three percent reported daily cocaine use. Median duration of cocaine use was 6.3 years. Acts of acquisitive crime were common, and 56% had been arrested. Our finding are discussed in terms of implications for prevention and treatment.
