As will be noted throughout this book, the clinical heterogeneity of SUD is immense; thus, a paramount issue at the outset pertains to accurate specification of this outcome. SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER: OUTCOME PHENOTYPE Substance use disorder is a polythetic syndrome; that is, no symptom is a necessary or a sufficient condition required for diagnosis. Accordingly, the configuration of symptoms is highly variable in the population which qualifies for SUD. The magnitude of heterogeneity is potentially immense due to the fact that only four of nine symptoms are required for diagnosis.

Hence, whereas the DSM-IV taxonomy groups SUD into ten categories, common genetic factors largely underlie the genetic risk for most or all of them. In addition to twin studies, the adoption paradigm is also capable of delimiting genetic and environmental influences on the variation in SUD liability. Goodwin, Schulsinger, Hermansen, Guze, and Winokur (1973) and Goodwin et al. (1974) observed that the risk for alcoholism in the offspring of alcoholics is higher than in the children of nonalcoholics even when they are separated from their biological parents early in life.
