Here is a provocative article about the Dr. Leon Eisenberg, the father of ADHD, who admits his theory of ADHD is a “fictitious disease.” I know I will receive a lot of complaints about this blog post and the link to this Freedom Outpost article but I am not trying to please man but God (Gal. 1:10).
Click on the link above to read more about the concerns about the excessive drug treatment of children that could lead to addiction. In my personal practice of biblical counseling and in secular counseling prior, I have met MANY adult addicts who got started on the pathway toward addiction through a diagnosis and subsequent medication treatment for ADHD. It is a legitimate concern.
Many secular psychological experts disagree about ADHD. Some say it is not real. Some say it is. And these are secular folks! Search the Scriptures for truth and I recommend a strong book on the subject written by Dr. David Tyler and Kurt Grady, Pharmacist, called ADHD: Deceptive Diagnosis.
