Resumen

CHAHUA, Marcela  y  GRUPO ITINERE et al. Depression in young regular cocaine users recruited in the community. Gac Sanit [online]. 2014, vol.28, n.2, pp.155-159. ISSN 0213-9111.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.gaceta.2013.09.001.

Objective: To identify the profile of community-recruited regular cocaine users and the prevalence of recent depression and associated factors. Method: A cross-sectional study was carried out in 630 regular cocaine users who were not heroin consumers. Depression, social support and dependence were evaluated with the Composite International Diagnostic Interview, the Duke-Functional Social Support Questionnaire, and the Severity of Dependence Scale, respectively. Results: The mean age was 23 years and 33% of users were women. The predominant profile of cocaine use was recreational-intense. Most (88%) participants had completed secondary education. The use of emergency services in the previous year was 45.9% and 7.8% were under drug-dependence/psychiatric treatment. The prevalence of depression was 14.6%. In the multivariate analysis, the factors associated with recent depression were female gender, homelessness, ketamine consumption, and less confidential support Conclusions: Regular cocaine users may require specific attention in general health services. Greater access to treatment for depression is needed among this group.
