Inhalant abuse is the intentional inhalation of a substance such as paint or solvent to achieve an altered mental state. This worldwide problem is especially common in younger children when compared with other forms of substance abuse. Inhalants are pharmacologically diverse products selected for their low price, legal and widespread availability, and the ability to rapidly induce a state of euphoria. Serious and often irreversible effects are associated with chronic abuse, and inhalant abuse causes significant morbidity and mortality in school-aged and older children across all demographic, ethnic, and socioeconomic boundaries.
