Nearly 7 million children under 18 are diagnosed with ADHD each year. And of those, more than 50 percent take stimulant medication, which can often lead to neurological dependencies over a period of time.

The clock represents daily brain activity during the 8-10 hour lifespan of an extended-release stimulant.

The logotype refers to the dependency people can have on stimulant medications. After time, natural neurotransmitters and proteins found in the brain can be depleted due to over-use of stimulant medication.
