This week we’re looking at the ways ADHD and addiction are linked. Nzinga answers listener questions about ADHD medication, parenting a kid with ADHD, multigenerational trauma and ADHD, and why folks with ADHD can be more prone to addiction. It’s not as simple as you think.

Please note, In Recovery contains mature themes and may not be appropriate for all listeners.
