Controversy continues regarding increased vulnerability for addiction to cocaine and other drugs of abuse in adulthood following the use of stimulant medications for the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The results of recent research utilizing an animal model of ADHD strongly advocate for a closer look at this important issue in clinical populations, particularly where treatment is initiated in adolescence, and with certain ADHD medications.
