BARBOSA DE PINHO, L.; RAMOS OLIVEIRA, I.; CARDOZO GONZALES, R.I.  and  HARTER, J.. Consumo de crack: repercusiones en la estructura y en la dinámica de las relaciones familiares. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.25, pp.139-149. ISSN 1695-6141.

This study aimed to ascertain the impact of the continued use of crack in the structure and dynamics of family relationships. .It is a case study of qualitative approach. We used semi-structured interviews and instruments aimed at the Calgary Assessment Model Intervention in Family (ecomap and genogram). The study was conducted with a member of a family designated by the Family Health Unit in a neighborhood in a municipality of Rio Grande do Sul. Crack consumption leads to alienation among children due to behavioral changes, aggressiveness, sometimes accompanied by physical violence, fear, sense of danger to the family, adoption of more cautious behavior, in order to protect the integrity of its members, passivity and powerlessness, and the harsh effects of crack brings the family a sense of resignation. However, we realize the limitations imposed by the limited network of health services and social facilities, and factors that influence the dynamics of the familial world. So, rethinking the phenomenon of drug use in the contemporary world and the role of society in this context is a challenging course and one that should be discussed by all.
