Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a neurological condition related, in part, to the brain’s chemistry and anatomy. ADHD manifests itself as a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity that occurs more frequently and more severely than is typically observed in people at comparable levels of development. ADHD begins in childhood and can persist into adulthood as well. While some children outgrow ADHD, some continue to have symptoms into adulthood.

Chemical Dependency in Children and Teens
Though it is possible for some adults to use legal drugs without becoming chemically dependent, alcohol, tobacco and other illegal drug use by children and teens is extremely dangerous. During childhood and adolescence physical growth and maturation is rapid. The use of chemicals during this period acts as a toxin that harms the body and prevents it from optimally developing.
