As noted by the advocacy organization Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD), adolescents and adults who struggle with ADHD can experience significant psychological distress.
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is a treatable condition. When people receive individualized treatment, they can learn to manage the symptoms of ADHD and achieve an improved quality of life.
When you take part in residential ADHD treatment, you will benefit from round-the-clock care provided by a team of experienced professionals. At this level of ADHD treatment, you can focus fully on your health without having to deal with the stresses and distractions of daily life. Our residential program serves adolescents as well as adults.
When you participate in treatment at the PHP level, you’ll take part in full days of programming, but you won’t be required to live at our ADHD treatment center. When you’re not taking part in treatment, you can return home, or you may choose to reside in one of our on-campus residences. This level of ADHD treatment is designed for everyone.
A member of the Neuroscience Institute team can provide you with additional details about both levels of ADHD treatment so that you’ll be prepared to make the most informed decision.
Acceptance and commitment therapy is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on helping you to accept the thoughts and feelings you have instead of fighting against them. ACT utilizes techniques including cognitive defusion, acceptance, mindfulness, values, and commitment methods. Each one of these techniques works to help you build your psychological resilience in ways that allow you to manage your symptoms appropriately.
Dialectical behavioral therapy, or DBT, helps you identify the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that are negative so that you can alter them in a positive manner. This process is completed through four stages of DBT: emotional regulation, distress tolerance, mindfulness, and interpersonal effectiveness.
Motivational interviewing is a form of psychotherapy where the therapist works to help you internally motivate yourself to achieve mental health goals. They do this by focusing on your own motivations, listening with empathy, and then working to empower you to get motivated. This can help you get motivated in your treatment, as well as in your everyday life.
Easily the most widely-used type of therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy can show you how to change thoughts and behavioral patterns to improve outcomes. CBT has proven to be so effective that you don’t need endless sessions to gain the skills you are trying to obtain. Instead, CBT has shown effectiveness in a relatively short period of time, offering relief to many.
