Default correct answer

...for future generations...

The answer is a) Affective disorder

Slightly less than 50% of cocaine users seeking treatment have a current comorbid affective disorder, primarily of a depressive nature. Approximately 60% have a lifetime prevalence of an affective disorder. Therefore, affective disorders in conjunction with cocaine use are diagnosed more frequently than any other psychiatric condition. Cocaine users have a lifetime prevalence of alcoholism.
