More from Richard Turrell
ADHD and addiction often overlap, and the relationship is complex and difficult to manage without professional support. Several factors increase the likelihood of individuals with ADHD developing substance use disorders. Understanding the relationship between ADHD and addiction, exploring the contributing factors, and pursuing dual-diagnosis treatment can help individuals and their families find healing.

Many people who struggle with substance misuse also experience a co-occurring mental health disorder. Leaving a mental health condition untreated can lead to worse treatment outcomes and a higher risk of relapse.
Dual-diagnosis treatment addresses addiction and mental health simultaneously without prioritising one condition over the other.
