As someone with AD/HD herself, family therapist and addiction specialist Wendy Richardson is perfectly suited to explain the explosive link between AD/HD and addiction. This program is for those who feel out of control, like they just can’t get enough food, gambling, sex, or alcohol, and may have been diagnosed with, or suspect they might suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Richardson explains how AD/HD may fuel addiction and, even more serious, how undiagnosed or untreated AD/HD might be undermining recovery efforts.
She offers compassionate advice and scientific answers for those with AD/HD who struggle with addiction. Besides tips on how to combat the devastating effects, she emphasizes how the latest research underscores the importance of treating both, in order to ensure a full recovery.
