Adult ADHD, Amphetamne, Addiction, and the Amygdala




This course awards 1 CE Hour. 

ADHD and addiction commonly co-occur and each condition affects the course of the other. There is strong evidence for benefit of stimulant medication in treatment of adult ADHD, but frustratingly, these benefits don’t translate well to their use in early recovery. In this presentation, we will consider the evidence for approaches to ADHD in the addiction treatment setting, look at the latest evidence on the nature of adult ADHD, and examine the overlap between childhood trauma and ADHD, including how both conditions are mediated through the amygdala, and the implications of this connection in developing treatment strategies.
