Programs for ADHD
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, known as ADHD, is a neurobehavioral condition where inattention and/or hyperactivity/impulsivity interferes with daily activities. ADHD can be diagnosis in both children and adults and often times, is a lifelong condition.
According to the American Psychiatric Association, an estimated 2.5 percent of adults and 5 percent of children have ADHD. Furthermore, two-thirds or more of children with ADHD continue to have symptoms in adulthood. Contrary to popular belief, ADHD occurs in both men and women.
At The Phoenix Recovery Center, we offer individualized treatment programs for mental health disorders, including treatment for ADHD. In addition, we know and understand the science of chemical dependency with its associated neurological changes and its impact upon the pleasure system, emotions, learning, memory, motivation, and most importantly, the ability to exercise choice. We know and understand the biological and psychological science that support treatments in trauma, emotional disorders, and other mental health concerns.
Below is information relating to ADHD and our treatment programs.
What is ADHD?
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder is a condition where a person displays the following behaviors: hyperactivity, inattentiveness and impulsivity. It is usually diagnosed in children but can also be diagnosed in adults. This behavior directly impacts a person’s attention, concentration, memory and motivation, along with day-to-day tasks. When not treated, ADHD can affect a person’s work, home and social life.
ADHD cases vary among people. There are three different types of ADHD:
- Predominantly Inattentive
- Predominantly Hyperactive
- Combination of Inattentive/Hyperactive type
There is no specific cause of ADHD, but neurological, genetic and environmental factors can play a role in ADHD development in a child or adult.
What Are Symptoms of ADHD?
Signs of ADHD include:
- Difficulty following directions, concentrating, remembering information and organizing tasks
- Doesn’t listen when spoken to
- Loses items often
- Talks too much/interrupts
- Suffers from anxiety/depression
- Has problems at work
- Low self-esteem/motivation
It’s important to note that not everyone with ADHD experiences every symptom listed above. A diagnosis is usually made within six months of occuring symptoms.
What is Treatment for ADHD and What Does That Look Like at PRC?
There is no one-size-fits-all treatment when it comes to ADHD, but it is treatable through the right programs. Typical ADHD treatment options includes a combination of medications as well as group therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Therapy can help patients gain skills to manage and cope with their condition.
At The Phoenix Recovery Center, we offer mental health services and specifically treat those suffering from ADHD. Our services include a PHP Day program, Intensive Outpatient program and general outpatient program. Furthermore, The Phoenix Recovery Center provides support for patients in finding the right residential care with one of our community partners.
