ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder) causes you to act in ways that seem out of your control. Children with ADHD can be disruptive and distracting. Adults with ADHD often struggle in their jobs and relationships.
ADHD often begins in childhood or adolescence but can persist into adulthood.
ADHD can show up in different ways. Children with ADHD often get in trouble at school. They have difficulty focusing and completing tasks.
Symptoms are similar in adults. People with ADHD may:
People with ADHD sometimes live in their own world and disregard others at times.
ADHD can also have hyperactivity or impulse set of symptoms. Constant fidgeting, impatience, and other difficult behaviors may be signs of the condition.
At Solid Foundation Psychiatry, the providers use psychotherapy and behavioral therapy to help patients with ADHD. They do not rely on medications as treatment.
Treatment focuses on helping you learn how to manage the unwanted behaviors that can make living with ADHD challenging. Your provider helps you recognize and understand how your behaviors affect your day-to-day life and provides you with better-functioning tools. When you change your behaviors, the difficulties and stress associated with your ADHD reduce.
You learn how to divert the energy that leads to hyperactivity. Therapy also helps you improve your focus and resist impulsive behavior. You replace negative behaviors with more positive ones.
Therapy won’t change your diagnosis. Your brain is still affected by ADHD. Therapy teaches you skills that make it much easier to succeed in life. It can help you become more organized, manage your time, stay motivated, and regulate your emotions.
Behavioral therapy teaches patients how to divert the energy that leads to hyperactivity. The team gives you tools to improve your focus and resist impulsivity.
