Multi-Part Series on ADHD Stimulant Awareness 
ADHD stimulant medications are often controversial, and questions abound around their use. Awareness and education are key. That is why attention and ADHD coach Jeff Copper is releasing this multipart series dedicated to ADHD stimulant awareness. We have no doubt you will find these shows enlightening. Here are a few of the shows from the series: 
  • What impact does media sensationalism have on ADHD? Is it positive or negative? Or does it depend? You be the judge. In this episode, we interview Dr. Ann Abramowitz and Dr. Theresa L. Maitland on "ADHD Stimulant Awareness: Media Sensationalism" as Part 7.  
  • If stimulant medications are properly used under the care of a physician, are they addictive? Do you believe stimulants to be physically addictive? In this episode, we interview Anthony L. Rostain, M.D., on "ADHD Stimulant Awareness: Are They Addictive?" as Part 5.     
  • What are the long-term implications of poor performance in school, struggles at work, relationships, smoking, drinking? How do those risks compare to the risk of taking ADHD meds? In this episode, we interview Rick Green of Totally ADD on "ADHD Stimulant Awareness: Long Term Effects" as Part 4. 
  • Could it be that the stimulant referred to as Adderal actually gets its name because it was thought to treat all people with ADD? In this episode, we interview Dr. John I. Bailey, Jr., on "ADHD Stimulant Awareness: The Basics" as Part 1. We have no doubt you will find this show enlightening.
