Drugs of abuse often involve dopaminergic neurotransmission in the mesolimbic system. Despite their common pharmacologic effects, they produce very different intoxication and withdrawal syndromes. This chapter reviews the clinical manifestations of intoxication and withdrawal. There are many clinical and neurologic features of acute or chronic exposure to heavy metals and organic chemicals. This chapter also provides an overview of the most common neurologic manifestations of acute environmental injuries.
