Substance Dependence

The American Psychiatric Association uses the term "substance dependence" in place of "addiction" however the two terms are synonymous, or more precisely "substance dependence" = "substance addiction" (since gambling addiction is not substance dependence) and is defined as a maladaptive pattern of substance use leading to clinically significant impairment or distress.
