PDF (Amphetamine dependence in Dublin)

During 1962 eighteen cases of amphetamine dependence (0.9% of all admissions) were admitted to the local authority psychiatric facilities of the Dublin region. The social and medical background of these patients was examined. Clinical evidence for the existence of physical dependence and an abstinence syndrome in the amphetamine-dependent was adduced. There was no evidence of the type of amphetamine taking of the adolescent delinquent type described by Scott and Wilcox (1965).
