In DSM-II, this category is called Alcoholic psychoses

Alcoholic psychoses are psychoses caused by poisoning with alcohol. When a pre-existing psychotic, psychoneurotic or other disorder is aggravated by modest alcohol intake, the underlying condition, not the alcoholic psychosis, is diagnosed.

Simple drunkenness, when not specified as psychotic, is classified under Non-psychotic OBS with alcohol.
