ADHD is a condition affecting the brain’s development, causing behavioral problems. It begins in childhood, typically before or soon after a child starts school. The difficulties ADHD causes may change as a child matures, but most people still experience significant issues that hold them back and cause distress in later life.
In recent years, teachers and parents have become better at recognizing signs of ADHD in children. However, some young people still don’t get a diagnosis until they reach adulthood. Revive Holistic Psychiatry specializes in treating adults with ADHD and can diagnose the condition in people who’ve never been properly assessed.
ADHD symptoms take three forms — inattentive, hyperactive, and impulsive. Adults with inattentive ADHD symptoms typically:
Those with primarily inattentive ADHD often come across as dreamers who live in their own world.
Hyperactive and impulsive symptoms are the ones most people associate with ADHD. These include being continually on the go and acting without thinking. Risk-taking behaviors like accepting dares and experimenting with drugs and alcohol are common.
ADHD also causes emotion regulation difficulties, so you or your child might often get angry or irritable.
After performing a thorough evaluation to rule out other conditions and confirm an ADHD diagnosis, your Revive Holistic Psychiatry provider prepares a personalized treatment program that addresses your specific needs.
A combination of talk therapies and medication often works best for adults with ADHD.
Stimulant medications reduce ADHD symptom severity, helping you regulate emotions better and calm your thoughts. If you don’t find stimulants effective or experience adverse effects, non-stimulant alternatives are available.
Behavior therapy teaches you to recognize and manage inappropriate responses so you can cope with daily life, relationships, and work. Revive Holistic Psychiatry works with you to find the medication and treatment plan that best supports your brain health and ensures greater focus and productivity.
