ADHD in adults

My son was diagnosed with ADHD as a child. (now 23) Was assessed by a educational phsychologist and found to be very intelligent. However he battled through school and couldn't pass grade 10. He battles to keep a job, is very anti authority and is agressive in his speech and attitude. His room is a pigsty and he Is never wrong and now has become involved in drugs. He does not think there is anything wrong with him. Please help!!!!!

He needs to see a good local psychiatrist for a fresh, re-assessment and advice on how to handle thios, which might include medications and counselling, and should be able to help, if he can admit that he could benefit from help
