The DSM-IV-TR defines Substance-Related Disorders as those "related to the taking of a drug of abuse (including alcohol), to the side effects of a medication, and to toxin exposure." Eleven classes of substances are discussed, ranging from alcohol and amphetamines to inhalants and other poisonous compounds.
Substance-Related Disorders can be classified as Substance-Use Disorders or Substance-Induced Disorders. Substance-Use Disorders include dependence and abuse; Substance-Induced Disorders include intoxication, withdrawal, delirium, persisting dementia, persisting amnesia, psychosis, mood and anxiety disorders, sexual dysfunction and sleep disorders.
