Abstract:

Prescription ADHD medication has been shown to be on the rise as a drug of abuse among young people. Unlike other drugs that serve only the purpose of achieving a high, this particular substance can be perceived as useful and beneficial by those who abuse it. It is these positive attributes given to the illicit use of these drugs that make them so dangerous, especially in the hands of youths. Using a national sample of 12th grade students, this study looks at what motivations exist among youths for the illicit use of ADHD medication. Warning signs and predictors of such abuse behavior are also examined as a means to identify youths who would be at risk to engage in illicit use of these substances. This study looks to build on existing literature regarding ADHD medication abuse by expanding what we know about those who abuse these substance beyond basic bio-demographical characteristics and commonly known motivations for their use. Suggestions for future research and policy implications are also discussed.
