ADHD and Substance Abuse
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a common disorder among children and young adults, though many adults are also diagnosed with it. It is most commonly treated with a combination of medication (stimulants) and behavior therapy. One of the symptoms of ADHD is impulsiveness, which can lead to excessive use of alcohol and other recreational drugs. Also, ADHD medications have been abused, both by people who hold a prescription and by their peers.
