Is it Addiction or is it Mental Health?
Symptoms of substance abuse or addiction can mask symptoms of mental illness, and symptoms of mental illness can be confused with symptoms of addiction. To be effective, both disorders must be treated at the same time, in the same place, by the same treatment team.
ADHD Affects Adults Also
Adults with ADHD have typically had the disorder since childhood but may not have been diagnosed until later in life. The symptoms of ADHD in both children and adults can range from mild to severe, depending on each person’s physiology and environment. Symptoms can affect school, work, and social situations for those with ADHD. Other conditions, such as depression or anxiety, may worsen ADHD symptoms.
