Hallucination intoxication symptoms and diagnostic criteria follow below. While some of these hallucinogen intoxication symptoms may be recognized by family, teachers, legal and medical professionals,  and others, only  properly trained mental health professionals (psychologists, psychiatrists, professional counselors etc.) can or should even attempt to make a mental health diagnosis. Many additional factors are considered in addition to the hallucinogen intoxication symptoms in making proper diagnosis, including frequently medical and psychological testing consideration.
