Substance intoxication

Substance intoxication is a type of substance-induced disorder which is potentially maladaptive and impairing, but reversible, and associated with recent use. If the symptoms are severe, the term “substance intoxication delirium” may be used. Generic slang terms include: getting high or wasted, being stoned or blazed (all usually in reference to cannabis), with many more specific slang terms for each particular type of intoxicant.
