Abstract

In order to assess differences between cocaine dependence alone and cocaine dependence complicated by alcohol abuse, 34 subjects who met DSM-III-R criteria for alcohol abuse and cocaine dependence (COC-ETOH group) were compared with 39 subjects who met criteria for cocaine dependence only (COC-only group) with regard to demographics, substance use, and psychopathology. There were no differences between groups in age, race, employment or socio-economic status. The baseline depression and global severity scores in the COC-ETOH group were significantly higher than in the COC-only group. The COC-ETOH group was significantly more likely to experience a paranoid psychosis with cocaine use and significantly more likely to have abused additional substances in the month prior to study entry. The COC-ETOH group also attended significantly fewer medication management sessions during the 12-week trial. There were no differences between groups in the type or frequency of Axis 1 or Axis II disorders.
