    If you indicate tolerance and withdrawal with substance abuse isn’t that distinguishing between abuse and addiction?

    • Tolerance and withdrawal are just two of the 11 symptoms of a substance use disorder.

      The way to label that is “substance use disorder”. The terms abuse, dependence, and addiction aren’t used in the diagnosis.

      You name the substance (choosing from the list of 10 substances in the manual) and then just add “…use disorder”.

      Thanks for your question.

    Interesting presentation.
    It should be noted that the DSM personality disorder task force wasn’t the group that nixed the new PD criteria; it was the APA board. That’s why we have PDs essentially unchanged from DSM-IV. The task force members were pretty generally uniformly aghast. Martha Teater simply misspoke.

    • You’re right, the personality disorders workgroup had suggested that personality disorders be reduced to five, it was a vote of the other group that voted it down I December.

      Thanks for the correction.
