With all of the rumors, legends, myths and misinformation that exist about attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), it can be difficult to know what is fact and what is fiction. Is there a relationship between ADHD and substance abuse? If so, why does this correlation exist? Finally, what can be done to prevent abuse and treat the symptoms if they have already begun? ADHD has historically been a diagnosis shrouded with judgment and a devaluing of its existence. However, with current evidence, it seems clear that people with ADHD are more likely than the general population to have greater rates of substance abuse that begin at earlier ages. This training will discuss what ADHD is and the neurobiology and etiology that increases the likelihood of someone being diagnosed with ADHD. The training will explore the symptoms and strengths of ADHD and tie in how SUD is linked to this diagnosis. And finally, effective treatment options will be identified to help stop the trend of people with ADHD being at higher risk for substance abuse, including working to know the facts, the use of medication, and understanding the triggers.

Learning Objectives:

• Discuss 5 myths associated with ADHD
• Identify 5 symptoms characteristic of ADHD
• Understand 4 risk factors associated with ADHD and substance use
• Understand the etiology of ADHD
• Identify 3 risk factors associated with ADHD and SUD
• Explore 5 ways to begin treating ADHD and Substance Use
