The structural model of vulnerability to psychosis in substance abuse considers three possible presentations of the psychotic experience, according to different models of temporality: hyperstability, unbalance, exhaustion. The exhaustion type is usually observed as the final stage of a process when, after a history of repeated substance-induced psychotic episodes, the delusional experience pervades reality. The delusional experience constitutes a new, crystallized existential configuration, that endures well beyond substance use.
In this clinical case we describe a subject with psychotic symptoms following a long-term use of cocaine. This framework can help clinicians in the development of treatment strategies that take into account the psychopathological specificity of psychoses related to substance use.
