The Link Between ADHD and Substance Abuse

ADHD is about more than the most well-known symptoms of the disorder, like inattention and impulsivity. While these are very real battles for many people with ADHD, the condition can also come with emotional dysregulation, trouble sleeping, a higher likelihood of social challenges, and an increased risk of various mental health conditions. This includes numerous substance use disorders. 

In fact, people with ADHD are about 2-3 times as likely to face problems with substance abuse compared to the general population, depending on the study. People with ADHD are also more likely to start using substances at an earlier age, which is a risk factor for addiction.

Can ADHD Cause Substance Abuse?

The overlap between ADHD and addiction can be attributed to multiple factors. Largely, it comes down to unmet needs. Many people with ADHD who use substances do so to self-medicate. For example, you might use substances to sleep, focus, or manage your mood if you have ADHD. 

Others might try to cope with potential social problems due to a lack of social acceptance in the past. For those who face impulsive symptoms, impulsivity can play a role. Many substances boost dopamine, which the ADHD brain is known to seek.

Can Drug Abuse Lead to Worsened ADHD Symptoms?

Drug and alcohol abuse can lead to worsened ADHD symptoms. Sometimes, it feels like it helps at first, but the substances you use backfire in the end. For example, many substances will worsen attention, impulsivity, and mood. Substance abuse can also lead to brain changes, which affect your personality, behavior, and overall well-being. An increased risk of accidents and injuries, financial problems, legal issues, and impaired interpersonal relationships are other possible consequences. 

Treating ADHD is important for quality of life. Effective treatment, which is most often a combination of medication and therapy, can also lower the risk of substance abuse. If ADHD and substance abuse co-occur, it is vital that you receive proper treatment for both. That is where we come in: Ava Recovery treats addiction and co-occurring disorders comprehensively.

Medical Detoxification Program at Ava Recovery

Most clients attend medical detoxification before starting our residential inpatient program. Discontinuing substances on your own can be dangerous and is not recommended for multiple reasons. Our medical detoxification (detox) services help you get off of drugs and alcohol safely with the care of trained medical staff. 

Most clients stay in medical detox for about 1-2 weeks. Since detox is focused on physical stability and does not address the underlying causes of addiction, including factors like ADHD and related disorders, it should be used as a precursor to another care level.

Our trauma-focused residential inpatient program is ideal for clients seeking co-occurring addiction and ADHD treatment in Austin. Ava Recovery uses a combination of evidence-based therapies and supportive treatments. These include but aren’t limited to Internal Family Systems (IFS), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Equine Therapy, and medication management. 

Through our unique, integrated approach, we will help you overcome substance abuse and manage ADHD symptoms for an optimal quality of life. You will get an individualized treatment plan at Ava Recovery, which will inform your specific inpatient schedule.
