Title

ADHD's Relationship with Addiction

Summary

Many people who have ADHD suffer from addiction. One of the reasons for this is that ADHD goes undiagnosed in many populations, including among women. When ADHD is undiagnosed, it often leads to other disorders like anxiety and depression. Anxiety and depression can often put people at risk for substance abuse, but ADHD compounds on that fact by how it functions. People with ADHD often deal with ceaseless thoughts, and come to rely on the drugs to help them function.
