Info Edit

Cocaine dependence is a substance-related disorder involving a dysfunctional pattern of cocaine use. Included in the GBD disease modelling were cases meeting the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV-TR) or the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10) diagnostic criteria for cocaine dependence (DSM: 304.20; ICD: F14.2), excluding those cases due to a general medical condition. According to DSM-IV TR criteria, dependence involves a maladaptive pattern of substance use leading to clinically significant impairment or distress. At least three of the following symptoms must be experienced within the same 12-month period: 1. Tolerance, characterized by either a. a need for increased amounts of the substance to achieve intoxication; or b. markedly diminished effect with continued use of the same amount of the substance; 2. Withdrawal.
