Thanks so much Sue and Penny for sharing your thoughts and experience. I am finding it difficult to find a specialist here in Montreal who uniquely treats patients with ADHD and addiction issues. You are so right that left untreated ADHD can lead to other behaviors and substances as a means to self-medicate. I have been through the gamut of compulsive behavior to just “feel better” – excercise obsession, binge eating, drinking etc. I feel that recently including the ADHD factor in my treatment, this answers a lot of questions as to why I felt the way the felt and why I had such problems with alcohol and other behaviors. Thanks again for your insight!
