SAIZ GALDOS, Jesús. Social Psychology of the Health on the addictive cocaines consumption: a synthetic psychosocial model. Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2008, vol.17, n.1, pp.61-74. ISSN 1132-0559.
The drugs consumption is a personal and social problem that has been boarded from numerous fronts and different perspectives. The studies about the risk and protection factors of the use and drug abuse are abundant and, whereas at the beginning the researchers focused in only few factors, at the moment it is being used a more integral and synthetic perspective. This article indeed tries to present the psychosocial perspective of the problem of cocaine addiction. Here it is assumed that Social Psychology has a privileged integrative capacity, and it can offer an analysis model big enough to make possible a convergence of different positions. In the first place, the Theory of the Planned Behaviour, as well as the Psycho-Social Model for the Study of the Mental Health is reviewed. Secondly, the studies of values and personality traits having greater impact for the problem of drug addiction are also reviewed. Finally, an analysis scheme is offered that integrates and summarizes the contributions in the study of the factors affecting cocaine addiction.
