There are four major diagnostic categories in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of
Mental Disorders, fifth edition (DSM-5):
(1) Substance Use Disorder
(2) Substance Intoxication
(3) Substance Withdrawal
(4) Substance-Induced Mental Disorder.

Substance use disorder is the diagnostic term applied to the specific substance abused
(e.g., alcohol use disorder, opioid use disorder) that results from the prolonged use of
the substance.

A maladaptive pattern of substance use leading to clinically significant impairment or
distress, as manifested by 2 (or more) of the following, occurring within a 12-month
1. recurrent substance use resulting in a failure to fulfill major role obligations at
work, school, or home (e.g., repeated absences or poor work performance related to
substance use; substance-related absences, suspensions, or expulsions from school;
neglect of children or household)
2. recurrent substance use in situations in which it is physically hazardous (e.g., driving
an automobile or operating a machine when impaired by substance use)
3. continued substance use despite having persistent or recurrent social or
interpersonal problems caused or exacerbated by the effects of the substance (e.g.,
arguments with spouse about consequences of intoxication, physical fights)
4. tolerance, as defined by either of the following:
a. a need for markedly increased amounts of the substance to achieve intoxication or
desired effect
b. markedly diminished effect with continued use of the same amount of the

5. withdrawal, as manifested by either of the following:
a. the characteristic withdrawal syndrome for the substance
b. the same (or a closely related) substance is taken to relieve or avoid withdrawal
6. the substance is often taken in larger amounts or over a longer period than was
7. there is a persistent desire or unsuccessful efforts to cut down or control substance
8. a great deal of time is spent in activities necessary to obtain the substance, use the
substance, or recover from its effects
9. important social, occupational, or recreational activities are given up or reduced
because of substance use
10. the substance use is continued despite knowledge of having a persistent or recurrent
physical or psychological problem that is likely to have been caused or exacerbated by
the substance
11. craving or a strong desire or urge to use a specific substance.

Substance intoxication is the diagnosis used to describe a syndrome (e.g., alcohol
intoxication or simple drunkenness) characterized by specific signs and symptoms
resulting from recent ingestion or exposure to the substance.

A general description of substance intoxication includes the following points:
 The development of a reversible substance-specific syndrome due to recent
ingestion of (or exposure to) a substance. Note: Different substances may produce
similar or identical syndromes.
 Clinically significant maladaptive behavioral or psychological changes that are due
to the effect of the substance on the central nervous system (e.g., belligerence,
mood lability, cognitive impairment, impaired judgment, impaired social or
occupational functioning) and develop during or shortly after use of the substance.
 The symptoms are not due to a general medical condition and are not better
accounted for by another mental disorder.

Substance withdrawal is the diagnosis used to describe a substance specific syndrome
that results from the abrupt cessation of heavy and prolonged use of a substance
(e.g., opioid withdrawal).

A general description of substance withdrawal requires the following :
 The development of a substance-specific syndrome due to the cessation of (or
reduction in) substance use that has been heavy and prolonged.
 The substance-specific syndrome causes clinically significant distress or impairment
in social, occupational, or other important areas of functioning.
 The symptoms are not due to a general medical condition and are not better
accounted for by another mental disorder.

Alcohol is a potent drug that causes both acute and chronic changes in almost all
neurochemical systems. Thus alcohol abuse can produce serious temporary
psychological symptoms including depression, anxiety, and psychoses. Long-term,
escalating levels of alcohol consumption can produce tolerance as well as such
intense adaptation of the body that cessation of use can precipitate a withdrawal
syndrome usually marked by insomnia, evidence of hyperactivity of the autonomic
nervous system, and feelings of anxiety.

The psychiatric diagnoses most commonly associated with the alcohol-related
disorders are other substance-related disorders, antisocial personality disorder, mood
disorders, and anxiety disorders.

A relation between antisocial personality disorder and alcohol-related disorders has
frequently been reported. Some studies suggest that antisocial personality disorder is
particularly common in men with an alcohol-related disorder and can precede the
development of the alcohol-related disorder. Other studies, however, suggest that
antisocial personality disorder and alcohol-related disorders are completely distinct
entities that are not causally related.

Depression is more common in women than in men with these disorders. Several
studies reported that depression is likely to occur in patients with alcohol-related
disorders who have a high daily consumption of alcohol and a family history of alcohol
abuse. Persons with alcohol-related disorders and major depressive disorder are at
great risk for attempting suicide and are likely to have other substance-related
disorder diagnoses. Some clinicians recommend antidepressant drug therapy for
depressive symptoms that remain after 2 to 3 weeks of sobriety. Patients with bipolar
I disorder are thought to be at risk for developing an alcohol-related disorder; they
may use alcohol to self-medicate their manic episodes. Some studies have shown that
persons with both alcohol-related disorder and depressive disorder diagnoses have
concentrations of dopamine metabolites (homovanillic acid) and γ-aminobutyric acid
(GABA) in their cerebrospinal fluid (CSF).

Many persons use alcohol for its efficacy in alleviating anxiety. Although the
comorbidity between alcohol-related disorders and mood disorders is fairly widely
recognized, it is less well known that perhaps 25 to 50 percent of all persons with
alcohol-related disorders also meet the diagnostic criteria for an anxiety disorder.
Phobias and panic disorder are particularly frequent comorbid diagnoses in these
patients. Some data indicate that alcohol may be used in an attempt to self-medicate
symptoms of agoraphobia or social phobia, but an alcohol-related disorder is likely to
precede the development of panic disorder or generalized anxiety disorder.

Most estimates of the prevalence of suicide among persons with alcohol-related
disorders range from 10 to 15 percent, although alcohol use itself may be involved in
a much higher percentage of suicides. Some investigators have questioned whether
the suicide rate among persons with alcohol-related disorders is as high as the
numbers suggest. Factors that have been associated with suicide among persons with
alcohol-related disorders include the presence of a major depressive episode, weak
psychosocial support systems, a serious coexisting medical condition, unemployment,
and living alone.

Psychological Theories
A variety of theories relate to the use of alcohol to reduce tension, increase feelings
of power, and decrease the effects of psychological pain. Perhaps the greatest
interest has been paid to the observation that people with alcohol-related problems
often report that alcohol decreases their feelings of nervousness and helps them cope
with the day-to-day stresses of life. The psychological theories are built, in part, on
the observation among nonalcoholic people that the intake of low doses of alcohol in
a tense social setting or after a difficult day can be associated with an enhanced
feeling of well-being and an improved ease of interactions. In high doses, especially
at falling blood alcohol levels, however, most measures of muscle tension and
psychological feelings of nervousness and tension are increased. Thus, tension-
reducing effects of this drug might have an impact most on light to moderate drinkers
or add to the relief of withdrawal symptoms, but play a minor role in causing
alcoholism. The theories that focus on alcohol’s potential to enhance feelings of being
powerful and sexually attractive and to decrease the effects of psychological pain are
difficult to evaluate definitively.

Psychodynamic Theories
Perhaps related to the disinhibiting or anxiety-lowering effects of lower doses of alcohol is the hypothesis
that some people may use this drug to help them deal with self-punitive harsh superegos and to decrease
unconscious stress levels. In addition, classic psychoanalytical theory hypothesizes that at least some
alcoholic people may have become fixated at the oral stage of development and use alcohol to relieve
their frustrations by taking the substance by mouth. Hypotheses regarding arrested phases of psychosexual
development, although heuristically useful, have had little effect on the usual treatment approaches and
are not the focus of extensive ongoing research. Similarly, most studies have not been able to document an
“addictive personality” present in most alcoholics and associated with a propensity to lack control of
intake of a wide range of substances and foods. Although pathological scores on personality tests are often
seen during intoxication, withdrawal, and early recovery, many of these characteristics are not found to
predate alcoholism, and most disappear with abstinence. Similarly, prospective studies of children of
alcoholics who themselves have no co-occurring disorders usually document high risks mostly for
alcoholism. As is described later in this text, one partial exception occurs with the extreme levels of
impulsivity seen in the 15 to 20 percent of alcoholic men with antisocial personality disorder, because they
have high risks for criminality, violence, and multiple substance dependencies.

Behavioral Theories
Expectations about the rewarding effects of drinking, cognitive attitudes toward
responsibility for one’s behavior, and subsequent reinforcement after alcohol intake
all contribute to the decision to drink again after the first experience with alcohol
and to continue to imbibe despite problems. These issues are important in efforts to
modify drinking behaviors in the general population, and they contribute to some
important aspects of alcoholic rehabilitation.

Sociocultural Theories
Sociocultural theories are often based on extrapolations from social groups that have
high and low rates of alcoholism. Theorists hypothesize that ethnic groups, such as
Jews, who introduce children to modest levels of drinking in a family atmosphere and
eschew drunkenness have low rates of alcoholism. Some other groups, such as Irish
men or some American Indian tribes with high rates of abstention but a tradition of
drinking to the point of drunkenness among drinkers, are believed to have high rates
of alcoholism.

Childhood History
Researchers have identified several factors in the childhood histories of persons with
later alcohol-related disorders and in children at high risk for having an alcohol-
disorder because one or both of their parents are affected. In experimental studies,
children at high risk for alcohol-related disorders have been found to possess, on
average, a range of deficits on neurocognitive testing, low amplitude of the P300
wave on evoked potential testing, and a variety of abnormalities on
electroencephalography (EEG) recordings. Studies of high-risk offspring in their 20s
have also shown a generally blunted effect of alcohol compared with that seen in
persons whose parents have not been diagnosed with alcohol-related disorder. These
findings suggest that a heritable biological brain function may predispose a person to
an alcohol-related disorder. A childhood history of attention-deficit/hyperactivity
disorder (ADHD), conduct disorder, or both, increases a child’s risk for an alcohol-
related disorder as an adult. Personality disorders, especially antisocial personality
disorder, as noted earlier, also predispose a person to an alcohol-related disorder.

Importance of Genetic Influences. Four lines of evidence support the conclusion that
alcoholism is genetically influenced. First, a threefold to fourfold increased risk for severe
alcohol problems is seen in close relatives of alcoholic people. The rate of alcohol
problems increases with the number of alcoholic relatives, the severity of their illness,
and the closeness of their genetic relationship to the person under study. The family
investigations do little to separate the importance of genetics and environment, and the
second approach, twin studies, takes the data a step further. The rate of similarity, or
concordance, for severe alcohol-related problems is significantly higher in identical twins
of alcoholic individuals than in fraternal twins in most investigations, which estimate that
genes explain 60 percent of the variance, with the remainder relating to nonshared,
probably adult environmental influences. Third, the adoption-type studies have all
revealed a significantly enhanced risk for alcoholism in the offspring of alcoholic parents,
even when the children had been separated from their biological parents close to birth
and raised without any knowledge of the problems within the biological family. The risk
for severe alcohol-related difficulties is not further enhanced by being raised by an
alcoholic adoptive family.

Alcohol Use Disorder

 Patterns of Use
 Phase I. Prealcoholic phase: Characterized by use of alcohol to relieve
everyday stress and tensions of life.
 Phase II. Early alcoholic phase: Begins with blackouts—brief periods of
amnesia that occur during or immediately following a period of drinking;
alcohol is now required by the person.
 Phase III. The crucial phase: Person has lost control; physiological
dependence is clearly evident.
 Phase IV. The chronic phase: Characterized by emotional and physical
disintegration. The person is usually intoxicated more often than sober.
