Column: Guard against misuse of ADHD medications

(Continued)

We are fortunate to have DanversCARES in town, an organization dedicated to keeping youth and families healthy. DanversCARES encourages you to speak with your child’s pediatrician or doctor about all of your child’s medications, and to speak with your children about the importance of using medication only as prescribed and only to treat specific and diagnosed medical conditions. Visit the DanversCARES website, DanversCARES.org, for more information and resources on this and other related topics.

David R. Selden, LICSW, is director of the Cape Ann Adult Behavioral Learning Center, a program of Lahey Health Behavioral Services, an adjunct professor at Salem State University. He maintains a private practice, specializing in the treatment of substance-use disorders, in Salem.
