Although the phenomenon of withdrawal has always been the crucial physiological Leng for distinguishing addictive from nonaddictive drugs, it has become increasingly evident that not all regular heroin users experience withdrawal symptoms.

"it" does not have clear antecedent. however the usage is correct.

"distinguish X from Y" generally used for comparing same types/things ( drugs to drugs, paints to paints, )
Distinguish addictive drugs from non-addictive drugs
Distinguish old paints from new paints

Distinguish between X and Y ( X and Y are from different types)

Distinguish between Cat and Dog (Distinguish Cat from Dog == sounds akward isn't it?)
Distinghish between solids and liquids.
