Resumo This cross-sectional study investigates patterns of drug use and associated problems among 332 cocaine users from treatment and community samples in São Paulo, Brazil. Data were collected using a structured questionnaire and the Severity of Dependence Scale (SDS). the majority were regular users of high doses of smoked cocaine. After controlling for severity of cocaine use, users in the community were found to be more involved in illegal activities, more likely to report adverse effects of cocaine, to be involved in prostitution, and to have lived on the streets. Better methods are required to provide interventions to tackle the problems and risk behaviors of these cocaine users.
