Resumen

El uso de drogas por los ancianos se caracteriza por ser un grave problema de salud pública. El número de usuarios de mayor edad ha aumentado a nivel internacional durante los últimos 40 años, pero el tema sigue siendo descuidado. Este estudio se centra en pacientes ancianos con síntomas de enfermedades mentales concomitantes. Así, se investigó el tiempo de uso, patrones de consumo de sustancias de abuso y el perfil sociodemográfico de los pacientes atendidos en los Centros de Atención Psicosocial por Alcohol y Drogas (CAPS-AD), ubicados en la ciudad de Río de Janeiro. Se trata de un estudio observacional descriptivo con un diseño cuantitativo transversal sobre la frecuencia de abuso de sustancias en la población mencionada. Las prevalencias obtenidas en este estudio son inferiores a las encontradas en la población general y a las reportadas en estudios internacionales. Esta diferencia puede estar relacionada con las características socioculturales de la muestra y el hecho de que los pacientes ya están en contacto con un servicio de salud mental, lo que puede indicar la importancia del contacto regular con los servicios de salud como factor protector y espacio de ayuda.
