Noto,Ana Regina; Galduróz,José Carlos F.;
Ciência & Saúde Coletiva , 1999, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-81231999000100012
Abstract: even though the context related to the use of psychotropic drugs in brazil is still somewhat unknown, available studies point to alcohol, tobacco and some psychotropic medications as the most used drugs and as responsible for the highest indexes of problems in our population. however, the increasing consumption of cocaine over the years is unquestionable, as well as the increase of a series of associated problems, including violence. as far as possible interventions in this scenario are concerned, the need for complementary preventive measures has been stressed. although the repressive approach has been highlighted in the last decades, studies have pointed out to the limitations of this kind of intervention. the different levels of psychotropic drugs use prevention are presented in this study, along with comments on the main approaches used and how they have been implemented in brazil.

Abstract: this article analyzes information recently published by the brazilian press on the use of psychoactive drugs and its implications on health. a sample of 502 newspaper and magazine articles published in 1998 was researched using content analysis. the drugs most frequently featured in the headlines were tobacco (18.1%), coca-derived drugs (9.2%), marijuana (9.2%), alcoholic beverages (8.6%), and anabolic steroids (7.4%). solvents were featured in only one article, although they are the most commonly used drug in brazil, second only to alcohol and tobacco. these data indicate an imbalance between the journalistic approach and the epidemiological profile of psychoactive drug consumption in brazil. dependence was the most frequent consequence mentioned in the articles (46%), followed by violence (9.2%), withdrawal syndrome (8.0%), and aids (6.8%). the focus of the articles varied according to the drug in question. while articles on marijuana focused on its therapeutic use and legalization, those on cocaine-related issues discussed both the damage caused by consumption as well as various interventions (treatment and repression).

Abstract: context: in order to establish prevention programs regarding psychotropic drug use that are adapted to specific populations it is, first of all, important to have data on the realities of such consumption. single data points are not enough for drawing up a profile of society in relation to drugs. objective: the aim of this household survey was to determine the incidence of illegal drug, alcohol, tobacco and psychotropic medication use, and thus the number of persons dependent on drugs, alcohol and nicotine, and to evaluate their perception regarding how easy it is to obtain psychotropic drugs. type of study: epidemiological survey. setting: all of the 24 cities in the state of sao paulo with more 200,000 inhabitants participated in the study. method: the sampling was constructed from weighted probabilistic stratified conglomerates obtained via two-stage selection. in each municipality sampled, census sectors (generally 200-300 households) were first selected. then, households and a respondent were selected to provide information from his/her point of view. the samhsa questionnaire (substance abuse and mental health services administration) of the u.s. department of public health was used, after translation and adaptation to brazilian conditions. results: a total of 2,411 persons aged 12-65 years old were interviewed, of whom 39.9% weremen. lifetime use of any psychotropic drug other than alcohol and tobacco was 11.6%: much less than in the u.s. (34.8%). the alcohol dependence rate was 6%, similar to findings from other countries. marijuana was the illegal drug most cited as used daily (6.6%): a prevalence much lower than in the u.s. (32.0%). inhalant use was next in frequency of use (2.7%): about 10 times less than in the united kingdom (20%). cocaine use (2.1%) was about 5 times less than in the u.s. (10.6%). there was no report of heroin use, although there was a surprisingly high perception regarding the ease of obtaining heroin: 38.3% said it was easy to obtain.

Abstract: objective: to understand the sociodemographic factors associated with daily consumption of cigarettes and pattern of cigarette use among brazilian smokers. method: a cross-sectional study was performed in 2005 involving the 108 largest brazilian cities. data were collected through interviews with subjects aged 12 to 65 years in randomly selected households. based on a questionnaire adapted to the brazilian context, a logistic regression model was used to investigate the association between the sociodemographic characteristics of the sample and smoking. results: of the 7,921 subjects interviewed, 16.4% reported daily use of cigarettes. the smoking prevalence was similar between genders, although women reported to start smoking at a later age and smoke fewer cigarettes per day. almost 65% of the smokers were interested in quitting or reducing their smoking habit. the main sociodemographic characteristics associated with smoking were as follows: adult age (30-59 years old), unemployment, low education level, and low socioeconomic level. alcohol abuse was also shown to be associated with smoking. conclusions: our findings suggest that adverse socioeconomic characteristics are implicated in increased susceptibility to smoking in brazil. in our sample, a high proportion of smokers reported interest to quit or reduce smoking. these data suggest that sociodemographic factors should be considered in the elaboration of smoking prevention and treatment policies.
