At a recent seminar hosted by INCADDS key speaker Dr Pieter-Jan Carpentier (ICASA). Presented the most recent research on the subject. The research shows that many young people and adults with undiagnosed ADHD are at risk of substance misuse, but there is hope if consultants gain expertise in this field both in diagnosing and treatment. Dr Carpentier explained that in his country a group of interested consultants came together to increase their expertise through training in this complex area. Through this there are now many consultants with this expertise available in Holland to provide early expert diagnoses and multi modal long team seamless treatment.
