ADHD and Substance Use Disorder (SUD) – 1.0 Credits

In this one hour presentation, Anthony Rostain, MD, MA clearly describes the neural correlates that ADHD patients share with proclivity toward substance abuse. He reviews the risks of Substance Use Disorder (SUD) in teenagers, college students and adults, discusses appropriate medication usage and describes multiple treatment approaches (both pharmaceutical and cognitive therapies) that clinicians can use to treat both ADHD and SUD. A trusting clinician-patient relationship is an important key to treatment success.
