Many research papers about ADHD include the sentence “ADHD is associated with increased risk of substance use”. However new analysis in UK datasets has shown no association between ADHD and adolescent drug/alcohol use. What is going on? Have we been getting it wrong for years, or are there societal changes impacting on people with ADHD? In this PhD you will unpick whether or not young people with ADHD have an increased risk of using drugs and alcohol, and why (not).
