There has been a great deal of attention paid internationally to the common comorbidity of SUD with adult ADHD.
But SUD is a minority comorbidity with ADHD in adults and testing persons with MDD, OCD, Bipolar, Anxiety D and other afflictions for ADHD comorbidity has been widely neglected and results in significant case mismanagement.
Adult ADHD normally involves adult onset rather retentions of childhood ADHD which tends to become less pronounced. The definitive study for that claim has been presented in Moffit et al. (2015) and is beginning to receive the attention it deserves.
