The objective of this current study is to learn the Sociodemographic profile and adhesion to treatment for alcohol dependents at CAPS-ad.  This is a quantitative study carried out at CAPS-as located in the city of Teresina, PI.  The data was collected from the charts of 227 people who participated in the study.  It was learned that the majority of the users were: male (88.9%); from the age of 19 to 59 years (87.6%); single (50.2%), having grade school education (40%); employed (48.6%) and Catholic (42.7%).  Many of the subjects drank alcohol daily (55%) and (29%) used illegal drugs, with marijuana being consumed the most (95.3%).  In regards to adhesion, (43.1%) remained in treatment after three months of admission to CAPS-ad.  However, it was possible to verify the great importance of this center through the satisfactory quantity of patients who adhered to and remained in treatment.
