Case Study on Substance Related and Addiction Disorders

Avishi Gupta [3]


Abstract: The aim of the present study was to understand substance related disorders with the help of case history. Substance use is commonly defined as the consumption of a substance frequent enough to produce clinically important distress and change in behaviour. The DSM-5 classifies ten separate classes of drugs which result in development of substance use or dependence. Many intoxication and withdrawal symptoms are distressing and even life threatening. Frequent drug use can lead to abnormalities in the central nervous system and also acts as a stressor for psychological disorders. The case study highlights that when the substance use starts in the youth it is detrimental for the development of the individual and impacts his personal and social life. Intervention in early stages is of utmost importance to avoid further distress for the individual and society.
