Substance Use Disorder in ADHD Patients

Substance Use Disorder in ADHD Patients

Host: Vatsal Thakkar, MD

Guest: Russell Barkley, PhD

Which characteristics of ADHD cause patients to be more susceptible to developing substance use disorder? Are certain substances, such as tobacco or alcohol, used more often than others by some ADHD patients? Dr. Russell Barkley, clinical professor of psychiatry at the Medical University of South Carolina and research professor of psychiatry at the State University of New York Upstate Medical School, joins host Dr. Vatsal Thakkar to discuss substance use in ADHD patients. Are even those patients taking stimulants under direction of their physician at risk for becoming addicted to their prescribed medications?
