ADHD and Addictions in Youth

  • Health Promotion Board 3 Second Hospital Ave (Singapore General Hospital) Level 3, Room 1 (Seminar Room) Singapore 168937 (map)

Speaker: Dr Christopher Cheok, Vice-Chairman, Medical Board, National Addictions Management Service, IMH

Addictions affect about 5 per cent of youth and ADHD is a risk factor. This talk will focus on understanding common addictions in youth such as computer gaming, drugs and alcohol use and how ADHD influences addictive behaviour. A discussion on the biological and brain basis of addictions and ADHD will provide insights into why extreme behaviours are so difficult to change. He is also a senior consultant psychiatrist and visiting consultant to the SAF and Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.
