ICD Code F15 is a non-billable code. To code a diagnosis of this type, you must use one of the three child codes of F15 that describes the diagnosis 'other stimulant related disorders' in more detail.


The ICD code F15 is used to code Substance dependence

Substance dependence also known as drug dependence is an adaptive state that develops from repeated drug administration, and which results in withdrawal upon cessation of drug use. A drug addiction, a distinct concept from substance dependence, is defined as compulsive, out-of-control drug use, despite negative consequences. An addictive drug is a drug which is both rewarding and reinforcing. ΔFosB, a gene transcription factor, is now known to be a critical component and common factor in the development of virtually all forms of behavioral addiction and drug addictions, but not dependence.
