What's the difference between drug abuse and drug addiction?Criteria for alcohol and drug abuse and dependence. DSM V Criteria for Substance Abuse. Substance abuse is defined as a maladaptive pattern of substance use leading to clinically significant impairment or distress as manifested by one (or more) of the following, occurring within a month period.

    Alcohol (ethanol) is a central nervous system depressant. Large amounts consumed rapidly can cause respiratory depression, coma, and death. Large amounts chronically consumed damage the liver and many other organs. Alcohol withdrawal manifests as a continuum, ranging from tremor to seizures. of alcohol intoxication and the effects of withdrawal of alcohol following a period of chronic intoxication. Why delirium tremens and related dis-orders were ever confused with the effects of alcohol intoxication is difficult to under-stand. A moment's reflection indicates the basic differences between these syndromes.

      Genetic polymorphisms coding for alcohol dehydrogenase, the amount of alcohol consumed, and the rate at which ethanol is consumed all affect the speed of metabolism. As a general rule, ethanol is metabolized at a rate of mg/dL in the nonalcoholic but at an increased rate in chronic alcoholics. alcoholics who seek treatment more than 14 hours after withdrawal as their EEGs may be developing abnormalities. Alcoholics may learn to use these drugs and later die from their potentiating effect on alcohol. My estimate, based on 10 years prac-tice in a small town, is that probably in this coun alcoholics a year die suddenly ofFile Size: 51KB.
