Drug Abuse

Drug abuse is a serious public health problem that affects almost every community and family in some way. Each year drug abuse causes millions of serious illnesses or injuries among Americans. Abused drugs include

  • Methamphetamine
  • Anabolic steroids
  • Club drugs
  • Cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Inhalants
  • Marijuana
  • Prescription drugs, including opioids

Drug abuse also plays a role in many major social problems, such as drugged driving, violence, stress, and child abuse. Drug abuse can lead to homelessness, crime, and missed work or problems with keeping a job. It harms unborn babies and destroys families. There are different types of treatment for drug abuse. But the best is to prevent drug abuse in the first place.

    Disorders due to substance use

    Disorders due to use of caffeine are characterized by the pattern and consequences of caffeine use. Included in this grouping are Caffeine intoxication, Harmful use of caffeine, Caffeine dependence, Caffeine withdrawal, Caffeine-induced anxiety disorder, and Caffeine-induced sleep disorder.

    Disorders due to unknown or unspecified psychoactive substances

    Mood disorder due to unknown or unspecified psychoactive substance is characterized by the development of mood syndromes with specific features similar to Depressive disorder or Bipolar disorder (see Mood disorders), but which are judged to be the direct consequence of use of the unknown or unspecified psychoactive substance. Symptoms of Mood disorder due to unknown or unspecified psychoactive substance develop in the context of and in connection with use of the substance, but their intensity and duration are substantially in excess of mood disturbances normally associated with intoxication with or withdrawal from the substance. The intensity and duration of use of the substance must be sufficient to produce the mood symptoms. The symptoms are not better accounted for by Depressive disorder or Bipolar disorder, as might be the case if the mood symptoms preceded the onset of the use of the substance or if the symptoms persist for a substantial period of time after cessation of use of the substance.

    Disorders due to use of caffeine

    Caffeine-induced anxiety disorder is characterized by the development of anxiety symptoms (i.e., anxiety, panic attacks) that occur during, or soon after, Caffeine intoxication. The amount or duration of caffeine use must be sufficient to be capable of producing the anxiety symptoms. The symptoms are not better accounted for Caffeine intoxication (i.e., they are substantially in excess of the symptoms normally associated with Caffeine intoxication). Moreover, the anxiety symptoms are not better accounted for by a disorder that is not Caffeine-induced, as might be the case if the anxiety symptoms preceded the onset of the caffeine use or if the symptoms persist for a substantial period of time after cessation of Caffeine intoxication.

The amount and duration of dissociative drug use must be sufficient to be capable of producing the anxiety symptoms. The symptoms are not better accounted for by dissociative drug intoxication (i.e., they are substantially in excess of the symptoms normally associated with dissociative drug intoxication) and also not better accounted for by a Dissociative drug-induced delirium including Ketamine and PCP. Moreover, the anxiety symptoms are not better accounted for by a disorder that is not dissociative drug-induced, as might be the case if the anxiety symptoms preceded the onset of the dissociative drug use or if the symptoms persist for a substantial period of time after cessation of dissociative drug intoxication.

The symptoms are not better accounted for by Hallucinogen intoxication (i.e., they are substantially in excess of the symptoms normally associated with Hallucinogen intoxication) and also not better accounted for by a Hallucinogen-induced delirium. Moreover, the anxiety symptoms are not better accounted for by a disorder that is not Hallucinogen-induced, as might be the case if the anxiety symptoms preceded the onset of the hallucinogen use or if the symptoms persist for a substantial period of time after cessation of hallucinogen intoxication.

    MDMA or related drug-induced sexual dysfunction is characterized by the development of a sexual dysfunction that occurs during, or soon after, MDMA or related drug intoxication. The amount or duration of MDMA or related drug use must be sufficient to be capable of producing the sexual dysfunction. The symptoms are not better accounted for by MDMA or related drug intoxication and are significant enough to warrant independent clinical attention. Moreover, the sexual dysfunction is not better accounted for by a disorder that is not MDMA or related drug-induced, as might be the case if the sexual dysfunction preceded the onset of the MDMA or related drug use or if the dysfunction persist for a substantial period of time after cessation of MDMA or related drug intoxication.

Moreover, the psychotic symptoms are not better accounted for by another mental and behavioural disorder, as might be the case if the psychotic symptoms preceded the onset of use of the specified substance or if the symptoms persist for a substantial period of time after cessation of the substance use.

    Hallucinogen-induced psychotic disorder

    Hallucinogen-induced psychotic disorder with hallucinations is characterized by the presence of hallucinations that are judged to be the direct consequence of hallucinogen use and are not better accounted for by Hallucinogen intoxication or Hallucinogen-induced delirium. This includes persistent re-experiencing, following use of a hallucinogen, of some of the perceptual symptoms that were experienced during Hallucinogen intoxication (e.g., geometric hallucinations, false perceptions of movement in the peripheral visual fields, flashes of color, intensified colors, trails of images of moving objects, positive afterimages, halos around objects, macropsia, micropsia). Neither delusions nor other schizophreniform symptoms are manifest. The symptoms do not occur exclusively during hypnogogic or hypnopompic states, are not better accounted for by another mental and behavioural disorder (e.g., schizophrenia), and are not due to another disorder or disease classified elsewhere (e.g., epilepsies with visual symptoms).
