Study to Treat Teens with ADHD and Substance Abuse Problems

Kansas City, MO – A study led by the National Institute on Drug Abuse is researching how to treat teenagers who have both Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD, and substance abuse problems. KCUR's Kelley Weiss spoke with Dr. Eileen Duggan of Crittenton Children's Center about her work on this study to find the best way to treat both issues at the same time.
