The primary objectives of this study were to evaluate the efficacy of OROS-MPH (Concerta), relative to placebo, in treating ADHD and decreasing substance use in adolescents with ADHD and a substance use disorder. The study involved 303 participants, recruited from 11 community treatment sites.
OROS-MPH did not show greater efficacy than placebo for ADHD or on reduction in substance use in adolescents concurrently receiving individual CBT for co-occurring SUD. However, OROS-MPH was relatively well tolerated and was associated with modestly greater clinical improvement on some secondary ADHD and substance outcome measures.
