Hidden ADHD is common. Most adults with ADHD—between 70% and 90%—have psychiatric comorbidity. When ADHD is comorbid with another disorder, it is often unrecognized and untreated. Certain functional problems and behaviors are suggestive of ADHD. Substance abuse, anxiety disorders, depression, and bipolar disorder are often comorbid and may be the presenting problem. Ways psychotherapists can distinguish these comorbidities are discussed. Other possible comorbid conditions are also presented.
