Substance Use Disorder and ADHD

January 31, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm MST


EXPERT: Timothy Wilens, M.D.

People with ADHD face an elevated risk for substance use disorder (SUD). While stimulants are highly effective for treating ADHD, they are also commonly misused, particularly among college students, raising questions about treatment options for people with a history of substance abuse. This webinar will explain treatment options and interventions for people with ADHD and SUD, and it will address questions about the safety and efficacy of stimulant use in people with these comorbidities.

In this webinar, you will also learn:

  • About the association between substance use disorders and ADHD
  • About common problems with prescription stimulant misuse
  • How treating ADHD could lessen the likelihood of developing SUD in later years
  • About pragmatic interventions to improve outcomes in young people with ADHD
