Objectives: To characterize the emotional comorbidities and the paroxysmal emotionality of the group of adolescents under study. Methods: A descriptive-exploratory study, a quantitative methodology, and a nonexperimental cross-sectional design were carried out. A group of adolescents in psychiatric treatment in two medical centers in Havana for presenting substance abuse disorder was studied. From the first population of 423 outpatient clinics, 9 were taken intentionally; while from the second population of 12 interned adolescents, an intentional sample of 11 of them was taken. A Modified Grau Experiential Self-Report, a Sentence Completion, and an interview were applied to them. Descriptive statistics of the evaluated constructs were performed. Results: (65%) (n=20) have polyaddiction to substances, 50% (n=20) suffer from anxiety, 38% (n=20) trait anger, 50% (n=20) have tense emotional health, 65% (n=20) have poor emotional regulation, 11 (65%) (n=20) are affected by psychological trauma, and paroxysmal negative emotions were anxiety 60% (n=20 ), mistrust 55% (n=20), impulsiveness 55% (n=20), restlessness 45% (n=20), suffering 45% (n=20), insecurity 40% (n=20 ), guilt 40% (n=20) and demotivation 35% (n=20). Conclusions: Among the paroxysmal emotions of clinical significance identified are anxiety, mistrust, impulsiveness, restlessness, suffering, insecurity, guilt, and demotivation, among others of lesser frequency but with individual clinical significance.
