What Is ADHD?
ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is a mental condition causing focus problems for children and adults for extended periods of time. Those living with ADHD deal with difficulties managing their work, school, and life. Those with undiagnosed ADHD experiment with substances to try and control their behavior. Addiction and dependency follow easily when substances are used to cope with ADHD.
