Deciphering the Disorder Alphabet

Clearly, there are more questions than definitive answers when it comes to determining if today's kids are indeed the Medicated Generation. David Fassler sums up the situation this way: "On the positive side, we're seeing more kids make it through high school and into college despite significant psychiatric problems, in part as a result of effective and appropriate treatment. We've also seen a significant drop in the adolescent suicide rate over the past decade, which may well reflect increased recognition and access to treatment. But there's no question that we need more information about the safety and efficacy of all treatment alternatives including, but not limited to, medication. We also need more well designed, large scale, long term studies to provide the information parents and physicians need in order to make fully informed decisions about treatment options."
