Abstract

Progress in addiction science is hampered by disagreements and ambiguity around its core construct:addiction. Addiction Ontology (AddictO) offers a path to a solution of the kind that has addressed similar problems in other areas of science: a set of clearly and uniquely defined entities to which terms such as ‘addiction’, ‘addictive disorder’and ‘substance dependence’ can be applied for ease of reference while recognizing that it is the construct definitions and their unique IDs that are central, not the terms.
