Changing the Language of Addiction” memo addresses terminology related to substance use and substance use disorders.  This memo was developed by the Office on National Drug Control and Policy (ONDCP) through consultation with external research, policy, provider, and consumer stakeholders, as well as in collaboration with Federal agencies. It strives to foster a shared, scientifically correct, and destigmatizing vernacular for speaking about the disease of addiction and persons with substance use disorders.
