Shocking Survey Result

"According to a 2013 survey by The Partnership at Drugfree.org and MetLife Foundation, 29 percent or parents say they believe ADHD medications such as Ritalin or Adderall can improve a teenís academic or testing performance, even if he or she does not have ADHD."

from http://nj1015.com/some-parents-see-a...dy-aids-audio/


This is a sobering statistic, even though studies have demonstrated these medications do not always help those without ADHD .
