The importance of treating ADHD in adulthood

ADHD is not just a childhood issue, but a long-term condition.

Although those impacted directly by ADHD as an adult know that the disorder can affect individuals across the lifespan, there are many people who continue to believe that you can outgrow it. Because of this, it was refreshing to see a recent article in The Globe and Mail detailing the findings of a study that sought evidence against this common belief.

Published by the Journal of Pediatrics, this study essentially looked at a group of individuals who were diagnosed with ADHD as children, and then in a follow-up found that “nearly 30 percent of the children with ADHD still had the disorder as adults and 57 percent had at least one other psychiatric disorder…compared with 35 percent of the participants who did not have ADHD as children.”

Essentially, the study underscores the importance of treating ADHD as a long-term condition – left unchecked there can be serious consequences if this disorder is treated as “an annoying childhood problem.”
