First, a quick definition of addiction; followed by what overcomeADHD traits might be the culprits for causing abuse and addiction. I then looked at different types of abuse addiction, i.e. substances, drugs, Internet, sex and pornography, followed by treatment and tips of overcoming.

ADHD - more than Attention and Hyperactivity Disorder

One of the biggest influences on my perception of ADHD, is the research and related findings of Russel Barkley. No wonder this site has so many references to his work and view on ADHD. With that said, credit is given to Dr Russel Barkley and this article represents then my interpretation of and understanding of his conclusions.

However, we would recommend the complete book, "What the science say".
