Substance Use Disorder

Substance Use Disorder

Substance use disorder is a condition in which the use of one or more substances leads to a clinically significant impairment or distress.

SUD refers to the overuse of, or dependence on, a drug leading to effects that are detrimental to the individual’s physical and mental health, or the welfare of others. SUD is characterized by a pattern of continued pathological use of a medication, non-medically indicated drug or toxin, which results in repeated adverse social consequences related to drug use, such as failure to meet work, family, or school obligations, interpersonal conflicts, or legal problems.
