Write 3 pages with APA style on Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. Under the manual guidelines published by WHO and the American Psychiatric Association (APA), the term ‘drug abuse’ is not official anymore. instead, they have opted for the term ‘substance abuse’ that in its nature and scope includes the term drug abuse. According to APA (1932), the term drug abuse can be applicable “to the illegal, nonmedical use of a limited number of substances, most of the drugs, which have properties of altering the mental state in ways that are considered by social norms and defined by statute to be inappropriate, undesirable, harmful, threatening, or, at minimum, culture-alien" (Glasscote, et al., 1932). However, we find that in 1973, the National Commission on Marijuana and Drug Abuse, recommended the removal of the term ‘drug abuse’ from official documents. stating that the term refers to only social disapproval, and actually has no relevant scientific meaning.
