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 and Counseling Centers, 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.
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:
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.

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.
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 and Counseling Centers, 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.

In addition, the staff at the Phoenix Recovery Center is passionate about total behavioral health in overcoming addiction. They deeply care about each person who they work with. Often our alumni comment on the profound impact of our staff members in encouraging them on their path to living a fulfilling life. Those who come to The Phoenix Recovery Center can realize a rebirth of their own dreams as they achieve their own sobriety and much, much more. And that makes all the difference.
The Phoenix Difference constitutes a carefully tailored program and recovery experience defined by research. Every effort is directed at supporting outcomes that prepare patients and their families with both the knowledge and applied behaviors to manage mental health disorders and to reclaim a meaningful life.
Furthermore, the Phoenix Recovery and Counseling Centers are driven by the guiding mission statement: “Empowering individuals and families suffering from addiction and mental health disorders, to celebrate life through lasting solutions.” We accomplish the therapeutic and healing experience through a continuum of care that begins with Residential Treatment and traverses across a Day Program, Intensive Outpatient (IOP), to General Outpatient (GOP). Lastly, the continuum of care culminates in a weekly Alumni Support Meeting, which provides a recovery support community to sustain the recovery capital of The Phoenix Alumni.
