Overview

Nearly thirty-five million individuals in the United States are addicted to a substance. A large percentage of them also have ADHD. In No Way To Be Treated: Managing Addiction By Treating ADHD, Kevin Patrick explains that properly treating ADHD can manage the addiction. He makes his argument by outlining the physiological similarities of both addiction and ADHD and proposes changing current drug treatment methods in a way that greatly improves the percentage of addicts who maintain their sobriety. Patrick believes that recovery programs must begin to screen for and treat co-morbid ADHD in order to effectively help addicts manage their addiction. While Patrick is a proponent of the Twelve-Step Recovery method, he believes that it can be improved. Patrick offers new ways for doctors, drug treatment counselors, and other treatment professionals to incorporate behavioral medicine in substance abuse recovery programs. Current methods of treatment are not effective enough in helping addicts achieve and maintain their sobriety. These current methods prove that this is No Way To Be Treated. Kevin Patrick, a recovering addict with ADHD, lives in Atlanta, Georgia. He has been married to his wife, Molly, for thirty-five years. They have two grown children and one grandson.

    Tough subject clearly explained and easy to read

    I had no particular interest in the subject prior to reading and intended to read this book over an extended period of time. I picked it up on a Sunday morning and did not put it down until finished. It is a logical easy to read explanation of complex physiological demands that can be met legally or otherwise. Author, Kevin Patricks first attempt is almost a fun read of a very serious topic. I recommend it especially to those who may be struggling with addicition problems, personally or in loved ones and associates. This book may provide hope and the needed answers.

    People should listen to what Kevin Patrick has to say about ADHD & addiction!

    It must be hard to be a good storyteller when the story you are telling is your own and all the warts are in plain sight for everyone to see. Patrick's style is straightforward and understandable - no pretense - it is what it is.

    As someone who has hit rock bottom and faced his demons, being able to return from that experience is a feat few people accomplish. To be able to put together a book that can really have a significant impact in the lives of other people is nothing short of miraculous.

    Highly Recommended especially for those who are raising children with ADHD

    I became interested in things "brain" when my son survived a brain aneurysm 3 years. I know Kevin Patrick, his story and was anxious to read his book when he finished it. He speaks from a wealth of personal experience. While much of his content is necessarily technical, his delivery is down to earth and comfortably read, easily absorbed. He has done his reserch well; what he has to say is important and begs to be understood and incorporated into one's repertoire of knowledge on these intense subjects.
