For me, I was not diagnosed with ADHD until I was 27. I grew up not able to focus and get things completed. I felt like I was unworthy in school and was very hard on myself, and so were my parents. I ended up using drugs and alcohol until I went to treatment on March 22nd, 2017. I have been sober ever since, but I know that if I had the intervention, I had at 27 when I was still in school, my life would have taken a different trajectory.

All the Best,
