Drug Addiction

Drug Addiction

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has  received a lot of media coverage in the past ten years. One of the  things most misunderstood about the disorder is the treatment. Children  (and adults) afflicted with ADHD are often treated with stimulant drugs.  Parents are often hesitant about giving their children these stimulant  medications. Treating hyperactivity with a drug that increases activity  appears paradoxical.

Using the Argosy University online library resources,  find at least two peer-reviewed journal articles that explain the effect  of stimulant drugs (such as Adderall or Ritalin—amphetamine or  methylphenidate) on the brains of those with ADHD.

Create a brochure that explains the benefits of using  stimulant medications and addresses the concerns of parents of children  with ADHD. Be sure to use language appropriate for the audience. Include  the following in your brochure:

  • Summarize the findings of the two articles.
  • Explain the effect that these drugs have in the brain.
  • Explain the concerns of using stimulant drugs to treat ADHD.

Develop a 2-3-page brochure in Word format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources.
