ADHD and Substance Abuse

Yes, this does happen. It has happened with my son.

He’s a pill popper and beer drinker, all at the same time.

Drugs mixed with alcohol is a horrible combination.

Here’s an article I found ADHD & Substance Abuse.

If it’s not one thing putting gray in our hair it’s another.

  1. Yes, but this only works when the people suffering from substance abuse admit they have a problem. People like my son think that they’re alright and everyone else has the problems.

  2. I have extensive experience working with people with substance abuse problems and how these problems interfere in their life.

  3. my God, i thought you were going to chip in with some decisive insght at the end there, not leave it with ‘we leave it to you to decide’.

  4. I’m so glad for you. Mine son is being a complete pain. I’m hoping he’ll mature out of it like yours has.

  5. I wonder sometimes if these individuals are actually trying to self-medicate, rather than to get high. That doesn’t make it any less frightening, though. Years ago one of my loved ones had a drug problem. Time and time again I told him I would not give up on him. And I didn’t. But there were times when I awoke at night screaming in fear. Today, these many years later, he is a wonderful husband and father and has a thriving career. He is also a man of good character. Hang in there. And don’t forget to take care of yourself!

  6. Thanks for stopping by.

    I hope to keep this blog up better than I did in the past.
