Lack of services for adult ADHD

18th January 2010

NHS-funded researchers have said many young adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) could be struggling to receive the help they need.

Their study showed a sharp decrease in the amount of prescriptions for young people aged 15-21 who had the condition. "The results of our study suggest there is a possibility that treatment is prematurely discontinued in some young adults," said Professor Ian Wong, from the University of London. "For some, they are still having symptoms but they can't get hold of treatments. It was quite clear when we interviewed clinicians that it's a real problem," he added.
