Adhd and schizo affective disorder with addiction ptobkem

I am on an invega shot for my schizo affective disorder but cannot find a doctor that will treat me for adhd and because of the symptoms of my adhd I have developed a substance abuse problem in an attempt to self medicate and fight the anxiousness and boredom that I always feel....I need help but no doctor is willing to help me...I grew up on adhd medication and was adhd waaay before I stopped taking my adhd medication and a year after I stopped taking it they put me in the hospital for psychosis and ever since then it has been hard for me I start school next month so I really need my adhd meds because I don't want to keep self medicating
