ICD 10 Code F15.2

Other stimulant dependence

2017 Non-Billable/Non-Specific Code

A disorder of regulation of the use of stimulants including amphetamines, methamphetamine and methcathinone but excluding caffeine, cocaine and synthetic cathinones, arising from repeated or continuous use of these substances. Its central feature is a strong internal drive to use stimulants including amphetamines, methamphetamine and methcathinone but excluding caffeine, cocaine and synthetic cathinones, manifested by impaired ability to control use, increasing priority given to use of stimulants including amphetamines, methamphetamine and methcathinone but excluding caffeine, cocaine and synthetic cathinones over other activities, and persistence of use despite harm and adverse consequences. Individuals with stimulant dependence including amphetamines, methamphetamine and methcathinone but excluding caffeine, cocaine and synthetic cathinones often develop tolerance and withdrawal symptoms. The constellation of behaviours suggesting dependence is evident over a period of at least 12 months if use is episodic, or over a period of at least one month if use is continuous (daily or almost daily).
