ADHD Treatment Q & A

What is ADHD?

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), previously also known as attention deficit disorder (ADD), is a neurodevelopmental condition that affects attention, behavior, and impulsivity. 

The symptoms of ADHD start in childhood. Parents and teachers may recognize symptoms in a child who’s unable to sit still or is disruptive in class. ADHD, however, also affects a child’s attention. Children viewed as daydreamers or easily distracted may also have ADHD.

Not too long ago, it was thought that children grew out of ADHD. However, while symptoms change as you get older, adult ADHD continues. And it can benefit from ADHD treatment. 

Am I a candidate for ADHD treatment?

Dodini Behavioral Health specializes in ADHD. If you had ADHD as a child or think you have ADHD but were never diagnosed, Dodini Behavioral Health can help you get the diagnosis and care you need.

Before making any treatment recommendations, Dodini Behavioral Health performs adult ADHD testing using a state-of-the-art, FDA-cleared online test you take from the comfort of your home.

After you complete your test, your ADHD specialist reviews the results, generates a report, and sets up a time to discuss findings and determine if you’re a candidate for ADHD treatment. 

What is ADHD treatment?

ADHD treatment at Dodini Behavioral Health is comprehensive, including all the treatments and therapies you need to understand your ADHD and how you can best manage your symptoms. 

ADHD treatment includes:

Counseling

Counseling, or psychotherapy, is an important part of your ADHD treatment plan. Your counselor at Dodini Behavioral Health helps you identify the areas of your life affected by ADHD. 

Then, you work together developing strategies to address these issues, such as learning organization and time management skills. 

Coaching

Dodini Behavioral Health also provides coaching to help you incorporate the life skills discussed during psychotherapy into your daily routine. Your coach cheers on your successes and helps you navigate difficult situations. 

Medication management

Medications are the primary treatment for ADHD. Dodini Behavioral Health works with a network of physicians who can prescribe the medication that best meets your needs. Or, your therapist can work with your primary care provider to make sure you get the right prescription. 

ADHD is a lifelong mental health condition that may cause other mental health problems like depression or anxiety when left untreated. Get the help you need by calling Dodini Behavioral Health or scheduling an appointment online today.
