Abstract: This study aimed to analyze the evidence available in the literature about psychoa c- tive substance use by persons with disabilities. We used integrative review of liter a- ture in SciELO, PubMed, SCOPUS, BDENF, and PsychINFO databases, with the d e- scriptors: pessoas com deficiência ; transtornos relacionados a uso de substâncias ; disabled persons; and substance -related disorders. Twelve articles were included i n the sample. Data were analyzed and discussed descriptively. The studies ’ results, with scientific evidence, were synthesized on two main themes: substance use by people with disabilities, and access of people with disabilities to treatment for substance - related disorders. The scientific evidences identified in studies reported disability as a risk factor for substance abuse, and also reported that disabled persons did not have access to treatment and rehabilitation services for substance abuse. Finally, the st u- dies analyzed pointed to the need for scientific research on this topic.
