Despite decreases in the number of cocaine users since 1985, the consequences of cocaine use continue to rise.
This paper provides descriptive data on frequent cocaine users that will help to explain these diverging trends and enable treatment planners to better predict the type of cocaine users who are likely to seek treatment.
Data from the National Household Survey on Drug Abuse were used to study the characteristics of frequent cocaine users since 1985.
The 1991 data were used to compare frequent users with infrequent users and nonusers.
Since 1985, frequent cocaine users have become older.
