Although prescription stimulants are often highly effective in reducing ADHD symptoms in children, adolescents, and adults, problems of non-medical misuse and abuse of prescription stimulants among adolescents, college students, and adults have become evident in recent years. Students who are unable to do a lot of work want the stimulant medication’s perceived benefits. Friends, acquaintances, and even strangers may ask students with prescriptions to sell their medication. Other students might steal medication from an ADHD student. This webinar will provide information for parents, college students, and professionals on how to prevent misuse, abuse and diversion.
