David Giwerc, Founder & President of ADD Coach Academy, recently appeared on ADHD reWired with Eric Tivers.

Host Jeff Copper, from Attention Talk Radio, masterfully interviews a young adult college student who was arrested for drug diversion, classified as the illegal distribution of a prescription medication.
