By adulthood, over 70% of individuals with ADHD have one or more coexisting conditions. Our goal is to treat all related conditions that impact the daily functioning and quality of life.
It’s never “too late” to seek diagnosis and treatment for ADHD.
We coordinate care to provide the most effective treatment.
Once individuals with ADHD reach adulthood, most are dealing not only with ADHD, but also with co-existing conditions include anxiety, mood disorders, bipolar disorder, dysthymia, sleep disturbance, disordered eating patterns, and learning disorders. Our goal is to help you find one effective medication strategy that addresses all your concerns. Uncomplicated cases of adult ADHD can be treated effectively by a primary care physician. More often, however, it is best to see a highly trained psychiatrist with expertise in treating ADHD and related disorders. Our psychiatrists coordinate care with psychotherapists, psychologists, and coaches on our staff, to provide the most effective treatment.
Reasons adults seek a medication consult:
• Their child has been diagnosed with ADHD and they recognize similar patterns in themselves
• Their primary care physician is not experienced in addressing the nuances of adult ADHD
• Their psychiatrist or physician focuses solely on coexisting anxiety or depression while ignoring the existence of ADHD
• Their psychiatrist or physician insists they cannot have ADHD because they have a graduate degree or a successful career
• A woman’s ADHD symptoms are dismissed or misinterpreted as anxiety
While medication can be a key component of treatment, we believe that it should be part of a comprehensive treatment plan that can help you to build brain-healthy daily habits, develop better daily life management skills, improve relationships and generally feel and function better.
