Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

ADHD is a neurological condition hindering attention and impulse control, usually starting in childhood and persisting into adulthood. It may result in challenges at school or work, low self-esteem, and difficulties in social interactions.

Inattention examples:

  1. Difficulty focusing
  2. Problems listening
  3. Difficulty following instructions
  4. Inability to organize tasks and activities
  5. Making careless mistakes at school or work

Hyperactivity/impulsivity examples:

  1. Inability to sit still, fidgeting, or squirming
  2. Frequent interrupting
  3. Blurting out answers to questions
  4. Trouble waiting your turn
  5. Easily angered

ADHD patients often have a higher likelihood of co-occurring conditions like learning disabilities, anxiety, oppositional-defiant disorder, and other mood disorders.

Not everyone with a diagnosis of ADHD requires medication, but some patients benefit significantly from pharmacological treatment. Counseling can help you find self-acceptance and develop behavior modification strategies. It can also address coexisting conditions, such as anxiety or depression. At Fresh Start Behavioral Health inc., our team designs a combined approach to treatment to help you gain control over the symptoms that prevent you from realizing your full potential.
