What is drug induced psychosis?
Psychosis is functionally a break with reality, wherein the patient exhibits hallucinations and/or delusions. The patient's objective grasp of reality is distorted. While psychosis can be treated, it really can't be cured.
Since psychology emerged as a science, folks have been arguing over whether psychosis was caused by neurophysiological issues (physical stuff and nature) or behavioral/cognitive issues (mind stuff, childhood and nurture). Since then, lots of progress has been made on both sides of this argument == there are empirical aspects of both. My guess is the reality of it is that both aspects factor into it.
However, drug induced psychosis or stimulant psychosis isn't the same thing at all. The drugs that induce this form of psychosis are all stimulants, most commonly amphetimines and cocaine derrivatives. These drugs, among lots of other things, induce temporary episodes of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and they surely mess up the sleep cycle something fierce. Combine OCD with a hugely erratic sleep cycle and a lot of neurochemistry that occurs with stimulants, and weird things can happen.
One of these weird things is Stimulant Psychosis. While it manifests in ways that are similar to basic pshychosis, there are major differences in symptomology, etiology and -- most important -- the permanence of the pathology.
In laymans terms, stay awake on stimulants long enough and you'll halluncinate, display paranoia, develop memory and personality disorders, and generally act like a psychotic. However, this condition almost always reverses when the patient comes off the stimulants and gets some rest (I say "almost" as it's hard to say what happens when a natural psychotic starts hitting stimmulants? -- But anyway)...
Stimulant Psychoisis may present as an actual psychosis, but its treatment, mechanism and etiology are very different from actual psychosis.

Can adderall abuse result in a dose dependent schizophrenic reaction i.e. alternate personality while intoxicated?
Yes; amphetamine can cause psychosis in individuals who otherwise are normal. Amphetamine psychosis is a disorder caused from abuse of the drug and generally occurs while one is withdrawing from the drug. The psychological effects generally do not continue after the drug has been discontinued; in some cases, psychosis has persisted even after removal the drug. Treatment with Vitamin B6 in one case resolved the psychosis. Read More

without a doubt, psychosis can be a result of using not only hallucinogens, but long term usage of almost any drug. Use of cocaine, amphetamines, cannabis and alcohol seems to be associated with greater risk for psychosis. Severity and duration of use, age at the time of first use and vulnerability to develop psychosis by virtue of familial, possibly genetic and personality factors seem to be the determinants for the development of psychosis.
