Here is an interesting study as cited by the authors of the article I provided a link for. If accurate, this would certainly reinforce your perspective on the use of medication versus psychosocial treatments. I would like to see more data to corroborate these findings, though. There is still so much to be learned about ADHD and the long-term effects of medication on the developing brain.

"Behavioural therapy and pharmacological treatment have both been shown to benefit ADHD patients. A longitudinal study of the efficacy of different treatments (an intensively monitored medication program, behavioural therapy, combination of medication and behavioural therapy or treatment as usual by community care) showed after 8-year follow-up that all four of the original treatment groups had a similar outcome: all showed improvement in comparison with pretreatment baseline scores, but none demonstrated superiority [58]."
