Publication types: English Abstract ; Journal Article ; Review
Today, cocaine use is a public health issue. Cocaine is a powerfully addictive stimulant drug which use is increasing among some part of the population. After a brief description of the physical and psychological effects of cocaine use, the article presents a motivational way for general practitioners to deal with risk-reduction issues. Based on the Transtheoretical Model of human behavior change and providing clinical examples, the article focuses particularly on the two earliest stages of change: "pre-contemplation" and "contemplation".
