ICD-11 Criteria for Disorders due to the Use of Non-psychoactive Substances (6C4H)

ICD-11 Criteria for Disorders due to the Use of Non-Psychoactive Substances (6C4H)

Disorders due to use of non-psychoactive substances are characterised by the pattern and consequences of non-medical use of non-psychoactive substances. Non-psychoactive substances include laxatives, growth hormone, erythropoietin, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. They may also include proprietary or over-the-counter medicines and folk remedies. Non-medical use of these substances may be associated with harm to the individual because of the direct or secondary toxic effects of the non-psychoactive substance on body organs and systems, or a harmful route of administration (e.g., infections due to intravenous self-administration). They are not associated with intoxication or with a dependence or withdrawal syndrome and are not recognized causes of substance-induced mental disorders.

6C4H.0          Episode of harmful use of non-psychoactive substances

An episode of use of a non-psychoactive substance that has caused damage to a person’s physical or mental health. Harm to health of the individual occurs due to direct or secondary toxic effects on body organs and systems or a harmful route of administration. This diagnosis should not be made if the harm is attributed to a known pattern of non-psychoactive substance use.

Exclusions:             

  • Harmful pattern of use of non-psychoactive substances (6C4H.1)

 

6C4H.1           Harmful pattern of use of non-psychoactive substances

The pattern of use is evident over a period of at least 12 months if use is episodic and at least one month if use is continuous (i.e., daily or almost daily). Harm may be caused by the direct or secondary toxic effects of the substance on body organs and systems, or a harmful route of administration.

A pattern of continuous use of a non-psychoactive substance (daily or almost daily) that has caused damage to a person’s physical or mental health.
