Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is associated with many adverse outcomes, including comorbid disorders, behavioral issues and social disorders. This video will show you how successful ADHD treatment can transform someone’s life. Anthony Rostain MD/MA, the Medical Director for the Penn Medicine Adult ADHD Program describes the success story of a James, a 27-year-old male who had substance abuse problems but now has created his own successful business since getting treatment for his ADHD.
James was diagnosed with ADHD in elementary school. He stopped receiving ADHD treatment in grade school and started using prescription and recreational drugs. This led to him being charged with poly-substance abuse. He was also diagnosed with multiple drug addictions as well as an alcohol addiction. Rostain asked James to see him after he was finished with treatment. He realized that James was still suffering from ADHD, which he suffered as a child.
James, upon being admitted to treatment, complained of depression. He had trouble completing tasks and was unable to stay focused. ADHD treatment consisted of both medication and cognitive behavioral therapy sessions. These sessions allowed James to learn more about ADHD, its effects on him and how he could cope.
