When Too Much Isn’t Enough – Wendy Richardson

Book review

Wendy Richardson is a therapist and addiction specialist and ADHD herself. Richardson presents much overlooked information about the connections between ADHD and addictive behaviors, not just drugs and alcohol. This easy to read and enlightening book balances science and encouragement.

The author reveals how the latest research underscores the importance of treating both the ADHD and the addiction in order to ensure a full recovery. Richardson provides the reader with valuable, “ready to use today,” suggestions of what can be done right now to start the healing process.

This wise book should be compulsory reading for all addiction specialists: therapists, councellors, psychiatrists, who continue to fail to recognise that many of their patients are ADHD and that this neurological difference has played a significant role in their addiction and the struggles they have with recovery.
