Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood mental disorders, and it can persist through adolescence and adulthood. The medications most commonly used to treat ADHD are stimulants, and survey data show that abuse of prescription stimulants is on the rise. This Advisory discusses the co-occurrence of ADHD and substance use disorders (SUDs), the misuse of prescription stimulants, and treatment and prevention approaches to these problems.
