Substance abuse not process abuse. The thrust of Processed Food Addiction hinges on the difference between substance abuse and process abuse. DSM 5 differentiates between the two disorders. The book labels food addition as a Substance Use Disorder (SUD). Examples of substances causing SUDs are alcohol, hallucinogens, marijuana, nicotine, opiods, sedatives, and stimulants. We would classify eating addiction is a Process Use Disorder (PUD). PUDs include gambling, shopping, sex, and video game addictions. The rationale given is that “addictive substances must be misused in the behavior” (11). I understand that all current SUDs trace back to a single chemical. Declaring food abuse as an SUD would be a departure from that practice. Or would it?
