Disorders Due To Use Of Psychoactive Substances – ICD 11 Codes

Definition of Disorders due to use of unknown or unspecified psychoactive substances: Disorders due to use of unknown or unspecified psychoactive substances are characterised by the pattern and consequences of psychoactive substance use when the specific substance is unknown or unspecified. These categories may be used in clinical situations in which it is clear that the disturbance is due to substance use but the specific class of substance is unknown. Once the relevant substance is identified, the disturbance should be recoded under the appropriate substance class.

6C4G.0 Episode of harmful use of unknown or unspecified psychoactive substances

Definition of Episode of harmful use of unknown or unspecified psychoactive substances: An episode of use of an unknown or unspecified psychoactive substance that has caused damage to a person’s physical or mental health or has resulted in behaviour leading to harm to the health of others. Harm to health of the individual occurs due to one or more of the following: (1) behaviour related to intoxication or withdrawal; (2) direct or secondary toxic effects on body organs and systems; or (3) a harmful route of administration. Harm to health of others includes any form of physical harm, including trauma, or mental disorder that is directly attributable to behaviour due to substance intoxication or withdrawal on the part of the person to whom the diagnosis of single episode of harmful use applies. This diagnosis should not be made if the harm is attributed to a known pattern of use of the unknown or unspecified psychoactive substance.

Exclusions:

  • Harmful pattern of use of unknown or unspecified psychoactive substance (6C4G.1)
  • Unknown or unspecified psychoactive substance dependence (6C4G.2)

6C4G.2 Unknown or unspecified psychoactive substance dependence

Definition of Unknown or unspecified psychoactive substance dependence: Unknown or unspecified psychoactive substance dependence is a disorder of regulation of use of an unknown or unspecified substance arising from repeated or continuous use of the substance. The characteristic feature is a strong internal drive to use the unknown or unspecified substance, which is manifested by impaired ability to control use, increasing priority given to use over other activities and persistence of use despite harm or negative consequences. These experiences are often accompanied by a subjective sensation of urge or craving to use the unknown or unspecified substance. The features of dependence are usually evident over a period of at least 12 months but the diagnosis may be made if use of the unknown or unspecified substance is continuous (daily or almost daily) for at least 3 months.
