Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is associated with many adverse outcomes, including comorbid disorders, behavioral issues and social disorders. In this video, learn how the successful treatment of ADHD can help turn someone’s life around. 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 first diagnosed in elementary school, but stopped his ADHD treatment when he was in grade school and began to use recreational and prescription drugs. Ultimately, this got him into legal trouble and he was diagnosed with poly-substance abuse, which included multiple drug addictions and an alcohol addiction. Once in treatment, Rostain was asked to consult James and he realized James still was suffering from the ADHD he had as a child.
After being admitted into treatment, James complained of depression, had a tough time completing tasks and staying focused. ADHD treatment was offered through a combination of medication and cognitive behavioral therapy sessions. These sessions helped James learn about adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, how it was impacting him and how he could better cope.
