Triora’s Dr. Constant Mouton is European speaker at Cape Cod Symposium on Addictive Disorders (CCSAD) and is presenting on: ‘’When You Can’t Keep Your Eye on The Ball: ADHD, Addiction, and Not Losing Sight of The Bigger Picture’’, Saturday, September 7th. After presenting at the CCSAD he will also be presenting at Newport University during a symposium on “Innovations in Addiction Treatment: A Clinical and Holistic Approach to Individual and Family Care”, Monday, September 9th.
Dr Constant Mouton is presenting at the events on ADHD and addiction. People with ADHD have a two to three times higher risk of developing substance use disorder. Twenty to forty percent of adults with ADHD have a history of substance use disorders. In a group of patients admitted for addiction treatment, 15%-25% will have ADHD, often still undiagnosed. Failure to diagnose and treat people with ADHD put them at risk of developing additional mental, physical and psychosocial problems. What is the actual addiction potential of prescription medicines? How does ADHD affect addiction and vice versa? What are the psychological implications on the patients and the family? The presentation will focus on diagnosing and treating ADHD and addiction. The presentation will provide insights and practical tips on this bio-psycho-social-cultural-spiritual approach and outline its impact on families.
