Those with ADHD May Experiment With Drugs Younger Than Their Counterparts

USA (PRWEB) February 05, 2015

The University of Florida conducted a study to test the speculation that people with ADHD experiment with drugs at a younger age, as opposed to their non-ADHD counterparts. According to the University of Florida on Jan. 27th, the study confirmed their initial suspicions, concluding that those who used illicit substances began around the age of 13; when 14 is the typical age in which children begin experimenting with drugs. Harbor Village Detox is a national inpatient medical detox center, rescuing victims of drug abuse. The facility keeps abreast of new studies on drugs to progressively update their treatment methods to guarantee that their clients are receiving the most specialized and powerful treatment possible is given to clients.

The University of Florida surveyed over 900 adults with ADHD who admitted to using drugs within the preceding six months. Eugene Dunne, a third year doctoral student in clinical and health psychology was quoted by the University of Florida, “As hypothesized, we found the progression of participant's adolescent substance use to be similar to that in the gateway theory of substance use, with alcohol being the first reported. . .then leading to marijuana and eventually more illicit drugs such as cocaine and heroin.”

Dunne warns people to avoid incorrect assumptions stating, “The take-home message of this study shouldn’t be that children with ADHD are more likely to become drug users, rather, seemingly ‘normal’ teenage behavior, such as experimenting with tobacco or alcohol use, may occur at younger ages for individuals with ADHD.”

Harbor Village Detox is committed to providing their patients with the apex of detoxification treatment. As such, the facility plans to help initiate drug prevention measures in their Florida based facility; to promote the wellness and continued longevity of youth who may be at risk of experimenting with drug abuse. A medical staff member comments, “Children have absolutely no idea as to what the gravity of drug experimentation is. The earlier we can instill prevention education across a multitude of venues, whether it’s in school, on the media, or at home, the better equipped our youth will be to understand the consequences of drug addiction, and choose to steer clear of it. Sharing the explicit truth with children, as opposed to the watered-down versions of being ‘drug free’ is essential. Kids need to know about the nitty-gritty details that are coupled with addiction to better understand the dangers of it.”

Harbor Village Detox is a luxury inpatient medical detox facility that focuses on ameliorating the effects of withdrawal, and eliciting the hidden spirits of their patients. Harbor Village Detox believes that every patient is capable of overcoming drug addiction with the right method of treatment that benefits their specific level of addiction explicitly. Their inpatient medical detox facility heralds 30,000 sq. ft of outdoor space to reconnect with nature and meditate in the lush gardens helped cultivated by the patients attending the facility.
