Figure 1

Sources of diverted adhd medications among past-year nonmedical users. Percentages of past-year nonmedical users of ADHD medications aged 18 to 49 who were never told that they had ADHD or were never prescribed medications specifically for ADHD and who were estimated to have obtained diverted medications in specific ways (including error bars). Estimates are not mutually exclusive. Bars represent 95% confidence intervals. ADHD = attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. * Stolen from friends, family members, or other sources. Obtained fraudulently by mispresenting symptoms or presenting to a physician who "didn't ask too many questions."
