We study the course, treatment, and outcomes associated with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, as well as the onset and development of substance use and abuse in various populations. These populations include children and adolescents with ADHD, adults with ADHD, and elementary school-aged children in the community (independent of ADHD).
