What is ADHD?

ADHD is a chronic mental health disorder that often develops in childhood but can last into adulthood. The condition affects your ability to stay focused and control impulsive behaviors, which can negatively affect your success at school and work and cause conflicts in your relationships.

Joy Mental Fitness offers compassionate care for adolescents and adults with ADHD. The behavioral health specialists can also address emotion regulation disorders and anger management issues that often occur with ADHD.

The team personalizes a treatment plan to address your specific ADHD challenges. They can meet with you in the office or through the online teletherapy platform to help you manage ADHD symptoms in a healthy way.

What are the symptoms of ADHD?

The attention challenges ADHD causes can include difficulties paying attention, inability to stay organized, and problems following directions. You may be easily distracted, frequently lose your belongings, or miss appointments.

The impulsive and hyperactive symptoms of ADHD can include:

  • Constant fidgeting
  • Inability to remain seated
  • Excessive talking
  • Interrupting conversations
  • Difficulties waiting in lines

Schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Joy Mental Fitness if you or your child experience symptoms of ADHD that disrupt your daily life, work, academic success, or relationships.

How is ADHD treated?

ADHD treatment for adults and adolescents typically involves therapy and medications. The Joy Mental Fitness team determines which type of therapy you need based on the nature and severity of your symptoms.

They offer:

  • Psychotherapy
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Anger management therapy
  • Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)

The team can also teach you mindfulness techniques to stay in the present moment and improve your focus.

If your child experiences anger issues or other disruptive behaviors, the team can also provide parental training resources to help you cope with their outbursts.

When therapy isn’t enough to control ADHD symptoms, the team can discuss your options for medications that increase focus, improve concentration, and calm restlessness and impulsivity. They continue to monitor your treatment progress.
