Inhalant Intoxication Symptoms and DSM-IV Diagnosis

 

Inhalant Intoxication Symptoms and Diagnosis Overview:

Inhalant intoxication symptoms and diagnostic criteria follow below. While some of these inhalant intoxication symptoms may be recognized by family, teachers, legal and medical professionals,  and others, only  properly trained mental health professionals (psychologists, psychiatrists, professional counselors etc.) can or should even attempt to make a mental health diagnosis. Many additional factors are considered in addition to the  inhalant intoxication symptoms in making proper diagnosis, including frequently medical and psychological testing consideration. This information on inhalant  intoxication symptoms and diagnostic criteria are for information purposes only and should never replace the judgment and comprehensive assessment of a trained mental health clinician.
