Abstract

The emergency doctor is often first in the line of fire in dealing with the medical, surgical and psychiatric consequences of chemical substance abuse.


Supportive management will adequately deal with the bulk of illicit substance overdoses, with meticulous attention to the ABCs.
Common confounding variables to the well-delineated clinical pictures described include polypharmacy and alcohol.
Management should include referral to appropriate rehabilitation agencies once the patient is stable.
