Adderall is classified as an amphetamine that is highly addictive. Although it can be prescribed for ADHD patients, students at university and colleges are known to abuse the drug. Because it enhances concentration and causes intense invigoration, Adderall is known as the “study drug”. This video explains how Adderall works in the brain and body.
This video should also be focused on the mental health aspect. Research has shown that Adderall is often prescribed to students who are stressed. We want students to be able to recognize the dangers of Adderall. We can help students manage stress and help them fight addiction.
