Publisher Comments:

Don't let AD/HD ruin your life. Ever feel out of control--like you just can't get enough food, gambling, sex, or alcohol? Have you ever been diagnosed with or suspected that you might suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder? If so, AD/HD could be fueling your addiction. Even more serious, undiagnosed or untreated AD/HD might be undermining your recovery efforts. Family therapist and addiction specialist Wendy Richardson has been there too. Someone with AD/HD herself, Wendy explains the explosive link between AD/HD and addiction and offers tips on how to combat its devastating effects. She reveals how the latest research underscores the importance of treating both the AD/HD and the addiction in order to ensure a full recovery. If you or a loved one can't seem to overcome your addiction, you owe it to yourself to read this book. There might be scientific reasons why it's harder for you to recover. Don't let AD/HD rule your world. Take back control and begin a new chapter in life.

But drugs, alcohol, food, and other addictive behaviors-like spending, working, or gambling-cause numerous problems of their own.
