From Bulbapedia


Generation II, III and IV

The effects of Substitute are the same as the previous generation; however, if the user has a status ailment, they will still take any damage from that status ailment after they have used Substitute.


That on top of my personal experience with Chuck's Breloom, the answer is yes. It will poison you and if you have Poison heal it will heal you.
