Psychiatric Treatment for ADHD
BUILD YOURSELF EVERY DAY
IDENTIFYING THE BEST PSYCHIATRIC TREATMENT FOR YOU
Adult Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) Therapy
The understanding of various psychiatric disorders is something that has evolved over the history of the field. In an earlier time, it was thought that only children suffered from attention problems. We now know that this is not the case. Another confusing aspect of attention problems is that they were linked to hyperactivity and people thought that you had to have both to have ADD. The truth is that many adults do not have any problems with hyperactivity but have full blown attention problems. These can be treated with a variety of medications. By far the most effective are stimulants. Some people worry about taking stimulants but under the supervision of a psychiatrist with experience treating adult ADD as I have, they are perfectly safe and can change people’s lives. I have many patients who wonder why they waited so long to speak to someone about their attention issues as their lives are so much better once they have gotten the proper treatment.
Therapeutic care for your specific needs
Other conditions I have experience with include Sleep problems.
OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder), Co-occurring Substance Abuse Disorders.
I also work with people interested in coming off their medications making sure to do this in a safe and comfortable way.
Finally, though many of my patients come to me initially for device about medications, many end up seeing me for weekly therapy because my holistic approach that includes advice about all aspects of life really resonates with them.
