2 RUNING HEAD; MANAGING ADHD: DRUGS OR NON-DRUGS INTERVENTIONS INTRODUCTION PARAGRAPH Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder has been viewed as a psychological illness that requires treatment of specialists. The very specialists insist on the treatment of this condition using drugs despite having an alternative non-drug treatment method. It is believed that these doctors are not ready to let go of income that treating this condition generates, the gamble with their patients’ lives. SUPPORTING POINT 1 a). Some of the drugs that are used to treat the condition only work to worsen it (Ahn, Ahn, and Cheong, 2016). A prolonged use of a drug is almost similar to drug abuse even if it is prescribed by the doctor, hence addiction is an outcome. Some of the drugs like Adderall or Dexedrine which are amphetamines can make a patient even more hyper and distracted which is the opposite of what they are supposed to do. Use of drugs at a point will not help anymore, and this affects a patient, physically, emotionally and more so psychologically. SUPPORTING POINT 2 b). Non-drugs approaches are effective because they focus on many factors to help deal with the issue (Ramsay and Rostain, 2014).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
