Objective: The study's purpose has been to analyze the relationship of multiprofessional care offered in a Psychosocial Care Center for Alcohol and other Drugs [Centros de Atencito Psicossocial Alcool e outras Drogas (CAPS-AD] with the number of hospitalizations directly related to the consumption of drugs by crack users. Methods: It is a documentary study with a quantitative approach, which was through the assessment of 213 medical records of crack users of a CAPS-AD, concerning the socioeconomic profile, individual care, in group and hospital admissions. Data were processed on SPSS, version 22. Results: It was observed the predominance of men (76.5%), within the age group from 11 to 47 years old, who were single (60.8%), and had incomplete elementary education (53.5%). The most statistically significant interventions were nursing, psychiatry, medical clinic and nursing technician care, as well as groups of physical activity, art therapy and relapse prevention. Conclusion: Therefore, it is necessary to provide continuous and comprehensive assistance to the crack user, with a multiprofessional team acting in a complementary manner aiming to minimize drugrelated hospitalizations.
