The Nation’s Health wrote in April 2011 that “College students with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, known as ADHD, may be at increased risk for alcohol-and drug-related problems, according to a study published online Feb. 2 in the Journal of Attention Disorders.”

Dr. Cohen’s notes: This is a reminder of how ADHD symptoms should be addressed early, and not only with medications.  There are cutting edge non-pharmaceutical approaches that have remarkable results. One place to start would be with the book  Disconnected Kids: The Groundbreaking Brain Balance Program for Children with Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia, and Other Neurological Disorders.  This is a must-read for any parent who wants a different approach and is one of the books in the ProActive Chiropractic lending library for patients.
