KISS-Version: Distinguishing among addiction, abuse, and dependence

Link: http://addictionscience.net/ASNabuseAddiction.htm

It is perhaps ironic that the first KISS-version of one of our commentaries actually comes from an off-site source that has summarized our viewpoint regarding the important distinctions among the terms "addiction," "abuse," and "dependence" perhaps even better for a general audience than our original commentaries. Ms. Jacqueline Marshall recently presented a concise, well-written synopsis that presents our viewpoint on this topic extremely well and in a very readable style. Visit MyAddiction.com to read her excellent commentary. Thank you, Jacqueline, for your excellent presentation! :)
