Harbor Village Florida comments on a new report that shows that ADHD is likely to lead to drug abuse.

USA (PRWEB) July 02, 2014

As reported by CBS News in the article Kids with ADHD More Likely to Abuse Drugs (6/30), a recent study has linked increased rates of substance abuse among kids who grow up with ADHD while dismissing the fact that traditional ADHD medicine has a role in it. While researchers do not have an exact answer as to why there is a higher chance of drug abuse among this group of people, some speculate that kids with ADHD use drugs to escape their anxieties about having the disorder. Others believe it could be caused by placement with other high-risk kids. Some believe it is strictly driven by biological factors. While the study noted that kids with ADHD are not likely to abuse ADHD drugs such as Ritalin, some kids with the disorder may fall into drug dealing, as many people without the disorder come looking for stimulant drugs.

Substance abuse can have detrimental effects on the lives of individuals and society as a whole. Substance abuse, no matter what kind, can lead to many negative physical health issues, mental health issues, behavioral problems, and integrity issues. It can cause people to lie and steal from their loved ones as well as put others at risk (i.e., driving under the influence). Many drugs are strong, powerful, and addictive and getting help will require medical attention.
