A recent study carried out by a team who are part of a World Health Organization research consortium at Harvard medical school showed, adults with ADHD do 22 fewer days of work per year than people without the disorder.
It is one of the most costly health conditions in the U.S., costing $77 billion annually. Adults with ADHD make less money than their counterparts, annually between $4,500 and $10,000.
ADHD left untreated costs more than lost work and income, contributing to the decline in their own self worth. They have higher divorce rates, more traffic accidents, and are more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol.
If adults suspect they have ADHD, it is important to be evaluated and seek treatment.. Treatment can help adults with ADHD understand the reason for their problems with work and help them take back their life.
