People with ADHD are 2.5 times more likely to develop a substance dependence issue than those without the disorder. Symptoms of ADHD, such as impulsiveness and distractibility, make it easy for those with ADHD to fall into substance use.
Stress levels for people with ADHD can be extremely high compared with those of the average individual, often triggering substance use. Many people with ADHD need constant stimuli for their overactive mind and often will create their own stimuli with substances if no other stimuli are present.
