People fear forming dependencies on drugs because there’s a stigma attached to it. There’s this completely un-factual assumption that most mental problems can be treated with therapy and decision-making, and maybe, maybe that’s true for some disorders. ADHD is not one of them, however. ADHD is caused by the inactivity of the frontal cortex, the part of the brain that performs “executive functions.” Every decision you consciously make is an activity of the frontal cortex, so when you decide to eat vegetables instead of cake, you are using your frontal cortex to over-ride your cravings and act in line with what is best for your future. Paying attention and focusing on what you’re doing are also activities of the frontal cortex. Organizing tasks and comprehending time are as well, and so is regulating your emotions so that you don’t blow up over little things, or impulsively say something rude or inappropriate.
When some one has ADHD, the part of the brain that does these things literally does not work at the level that the brains of average people do. It is not a decision, it is not an act of will-power. Expecting someone to use a part of their brain that is not working is like asking a quadriplegic to just stand up out of his wheel chair and dance."
