Abstract

Cocaine abuse usually is not accompanied by spectacular physical changes nor exists a great phenomenon of tolerance, but it has an enormous power to create addiction, even superior to the one of heroin. High comorbidity with other psychiatric disorders exists, and they can favour the consumption. The habitual and/or abusive use can cause important organic, psychological and social complications.
