Course Summary

Practice Level: Advanced

Issues related to substance-induced psychosis are important for clinicians to understand so that they can properly assess and determine root cause when patients manifest signs of mental illness. Factors related to substance-induced psychosis vary depending on the patient’s age, type and frequency of drug used. Early intervention by a qualified and knowledgeable health clinician is critical to help patients obtain the needed treatment and to avoid patient risk of harm to self and harm to others. A high risk factor that clinicians should always keep at the forefront of medical management in cases of substance-induced psychosis is that individuals with a history of psychosis can have a higher than average suicide rate.
