Diagnostic Statistics Manual

This is the Diagnostic Statistics Manual of the Medical Guild of The Unincorporated Deuteronomical Society.  As the Society exercises its self-governmental powers and determines its own view of mental health, various disorders will be incorporated into the manual.  For historical reasons, disorders have codes of the form DC-N, where N is a unique integer corresponding to the diagnosis.  DC stands for Disorder Code.  Although all symptoms are serious and may negatively impact the quality of life of an individual or those around him, it is the practice of this manual to list symptoms in an escalating order, i.e., symptom (3) is generally more serious than symptom (1).

DC-00023:
Drug Prohibitionist

(1) Preoccupation with the diets of others.
(2) Lack of insight into the unlawful nature of use of violence to control the acts of others.
(3) Use of violence at least once within the past six months in an attempt to control the diet of another, e.g., nonconsentual taking of someone's food, beverage or drugs.

Commentary:

At least one of the symptoms must be present in order to diagnose the disorder.  If two or more are present, especially if (3) or present, there may be ground for involuntary confinement and pharmacotherapy in order to correct the individual's mental disorder, which poses a danger to others.  This disorder is often co-morbid with DC-00024.

DC-00024:
Statutory Fantasy Disorder

(1) Belief that certain individuals or groups of individuals have right to govern others without their free and informed consent.
(2) Lack of insight into the difference between common law and statute law.
(3) Use of violence at least once within the past six months in an attempt to enforce statutes over individuals who did not give free and informed consent to being bound by the terms thereof.

At least one of the symptoms must be present in order to diagnose the disorder.  If two are more are present, especially if (3) is present, there may be ground for involuntary confinement and pharmacotherapy in order to correct the individual's mental disorder, which poses a danger to others.  This disorder is sometimes co-morbid with DC-00023.
