Isn't "substance use disorder" a political invention?
The "problem" with using substances is that other people disapprove of it.
Substance "abuse" is distinct from substance "use", but a billion dollars a year of biased NIDA funding conflates the two.
Also, the article is supposedly about "substance use disorder" but it spends a lot of time talking about "abuse" and "dependence" and "addiction". Shouldn't those topics mostly be discussed on their own pages? Is there really a disorder when substance use is not accompanied by abuse, dependence or addiction?

Assessment and Diagnosis Sandbox Edits for Substance Use Disorder
Hello all, I have made changes in my Sandbox about this topic focusing on evidence-based assessment and diagnosis. It would be great if people would look at it and leave comments on my talk page before I post it on the article.
