Is there a link between ADHD and psychopathy?

Psychopathy and ADHD do not share a direct relationship.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, also known as ADD and ADHD, is a neurodevelopmental disorder in which people affected by it have problems with inattention, impulsiveness, and activity levels.

Another of this kind of personality disorder is psychopathy, wherein a person does not feel and act on his/her emotions and has poor moral compass.

Even though these two disorders may be present in both, they are considered separate and different diseases.

ADHD is usually treated using medication, therapy, and changes in lifestyle whereas, psychopathy necessitates treatment and is treated using programs aimed at eradicating the antisocial behavior while honing prosocial behavior .

All the aforementioned conditions demand a proper plan to be developed toward their successful assessment and management.

Consult iCare Behavioral services to get an accurate diagnosis and get taken through the right course of action.
