    Is there a way I can feedback from HubPages on when an article is not featured?

      Hi there,

      Yes, you should have an email suggesting that you get help from the community. There will be a link in it that will create a thread here for you.

      Is it this one? … ness-Model

      I would avoid using generic images that do nothing for the article. Change it for a legal-to-use, relevant photo from somewhere like Pixabay or Unsplash.

      You might want to try going over to the learning center and taking a look at what they require in order to have a stellar hub.  Then compare yours and see what you need to do to upgrade it.  Here are some ideas that can help:

      Is your hub more than 1000 words?
      Is it written correctly?  Good grammar, proper spelling and structure?
      Does it "flow" or are the thoughts  unfocused and scattered?
      Are the photos and videos appropriate to the topic and have you properly accredited the photos.  Are they legal to use?  Are the photos the correct size, clear and beautiful.
      Does your title match your content?

      There is more, but this will get you started.

      First problem is that your capsule sections are way too long, which makes them hard for readers to comprehend.

      Second, you are talking about addiction and health issues that you may not be qualified to discuss.  HP has really tightened up on articles that give medical advice to readers that are not written by medical professionals.

      Third, your wordage is very hard to grasp for the average person, who reads on 6th grade level. seem to start off by defining the drug but then veer off into finding good people who  use it to treat people.  Needs more focus.

      Personally, I wouldn't write on a topic like this one...too technical and too full of medical advice.

      There's some good material here, but it does need organizing.

      My main concern is that in your article profile you say you're a "medical doctor," but not which kind. In your main profile you don't claim to be a doctor, but a "medical professional." I'm not doubting your qualifications, but it does look sketchy to have these terms used in a seemingly interchangeable way.
