ADHD Treatment

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) occurs when there are hindrances in the brain. There is disrupted functionality in the nervous system. This, in turn, affects attention, impulse control, and activity. ADHD impacts attention span and daily activities such as work and school. It also can hurt social relationships. Social relationships are a vital component of a well-rounded quality of life. The Summit Wellness Group’s ADHD Treatment Center in Atlanta, GA, aims to improve the overall symptoms of ADHD. Our goal is for our patients to maintain quality of life.

ADHD Treatment Centers in Atlanta, GA

More than 8 million adults have ADHD, and many are completely aware. The symptoms are often ignored or self-diagnosed as stress or the consequences of a busy lifestyle.

Millions of children are diagnosed with ADHD, most occurring in adolescence between 12-17. Children tend to be diagnosed with ADHD because of environmental factors. Genetics are hard to determine ADHD in children because their bodies are still growing and developing. However, that does not entirely rule out genetics as a root cause.

When it comes to Georgia, ADHD is a public health concern. Below are facts related to ADHD specific to the state.

  • About 3 in 10 children with ADHD have anxiety.
  • The average age of ADHD diagnosis is 7 years old.
  • About 4% of American adults over 18 years old deal with ADHD daily.
  • ADHD diagnoses among adults are growing four times faster than in children. That accounts for a 26.4% increase among children compared to 123.3% among adults.

ADHD and Co-Occurring Disorders

Other disorders can occur with ADHD. This includes learning disabilities, anxiety disorders, conduct disorders, depression, and substance use disorders (SUD). This is called a co-occurring disorder or dual diagnosis. Mental health disorders, SUD, and other disorders must be treated together for long-term recovery.

Below are some of the common co-occurring disorders that individuals with ADHD have:

  • Anxiety disorders are mental health disorders associated with excessive fear and worry. They can cause sweating, headaches, and rapid heart rate. There are several types of anxiety, including generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, and social anxiety disorder.
  • Conduct disorders make it difficult to follow the rules and obey social norms. Individuals with substance disorders typically have little regard for the welfare of others.
  • Major depressive disorder (MDD) is the most common type of depression. The symptoms include feelings of sadness, loss of interest in activities once found enjoyable, changes in eating habits, disruptive sleep patterns, and trouble concentrating, even on routine tasks.
  • Substance use disorders (SUD) are addictions to drugs and alcohol. The abuse can lead to physical and mental health problems, social isolation, and poverty. 

Our ADHD Treatment Services

Our clients receive individualized treatment plans catering to their specific symptoms of ADHD, preexisting conditions, and underlying disorders. While we have several treatment options, each person’s care ultimately depends on their needs. 

Medication Management

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) combines FDA-approved medications with behavioral therapies and counseling. This treatment can reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings for clients with SUD.

MAT is safe and effective under the care of qualified professionals. MAT is not a one-size-fits-all approach. The specific type of medication used and the span of treatment varies depending on your particular needs.

Family Therapy

Family therapy is useful for treating ADHD. It provides understanding, support, and education for family members. It strengthens relationships by addressing the impact of ADHD on family dynamics.

A therapist leads the session with your loved ones. Family therapy intends to recognize the often complicated nature of family systems. This method can help individuals in recovery rebuild trust with their loved ones. This format works well with other evidence-based treatments.

Individual Therapy

One-on-one therapy focuses on each person’s unique needs. This therapeutic approach recognizes specific concerns, and therapists develop specialized goals for each individual. You work collaboratively with a therapist to create a plan that goes beyond the one-size-fits-all model, leading to greater self-awareness for our clients. 

Group Therapy

Group therapy involves two or more individuals working in a session together with a therapist. Having a support system of peers is essential to recovery. During group therapy, each participant takes turns expressing their struggles, feelings, experiences, and goals to maintain long-term recovery.

Our therapists tailor the sessions to specific topics that benefit each person. Those topics include understanding ADHD triggers, strategies for approaching social settings, and building healthy relationships.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a psychological treatment effective for various disorders, including ADHD. Research shows that CBT significantly improves functioning and quality of life.  

CBT effectively treats individuals with ADHD. CBT focuses on problem-solving and changing negative thought patterns. In addition, it is a goal-oriented approach. This sets our clients up for success because they work with their therapists to set realistic benchmarks for recovery.

Our Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD)Treatment Programs

If you or someone you know suffers from ADHD, treatment is the first step in changing the behaviors associated with a disruptive life. Individuals need medical support from professionals who understand their specific concerns. 

The treatment team can develop individualized goals. Working collaboratively with each individual, treatment facilities can develop a plan beyond a standard model and create a personable and actionable set of guidelines instead.

Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)

A partial hospitalization program (PHP) benefits individuals struggling with ADHD. The program is ideal for patients needing more than outpatient care without 24/7 inpatient treatment. PHPs help individuals by providing a safe and structured environment with access to medical supervision, including therapy with family members and one-on-one and group therapy with individuals with the same disorder. 

PHP is also ideal for addressing the symptoms of ADHD and co-occurring substance mental health disorders because it includes individual and group therapy, medication management, and other experiential therapies. Individuals can access care during the day and return home in the evenings to continue their routines. They can practice new behaviors and build social connections in a supportive community. 

Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)

A supportive home environment can make all the difference in recovery. Well-appointed treatment facilities understand the importance of family in people’s lives. Because of that, we offer an intensive outpatient program (IOP). 

This program suits individuals who have support at home and do not need around-the-clock care. This option is typically designed for individuals moving out of PHP. Most IOPs meet 3-4 days weekly for 3-5 hours. Think of it this way: after breakfast, you come to treatment. By lunchtime, you are ready to return to your daily obligations. 

What are the Symptoms Of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD)?

When someone is struggling with ADHD, it can often feel like they have too many tabs open in their brain, and they cannot stay on one page for very long. What should be an easy task can often become difficult to focus on and complete. The diagnosis of ADHD is characterized by inattention and hyperactivity or impulsivity that causes some form of interference in functioning.

Other signs of ADHD in children may include:

  • Excessive daydreaming
  • Forgetfulness
  • Losing things
  • Squirming or fidgeting
  • Excessive talking
  • Taking unnecessary risks
  • Difficulty resisting temptation
  • Difficulty working with others
  • Trouble sustaining attention on a topic or conversation

Sometimes ADHD is not diagnosed in children. People may not realize until later that they are struggling with it. If you are an adult wondering whether you have ADHD, some symptoms include:

  • Impulsiveness
  • Disorganization
  • Poor time management
  • Excessive activity
  • Mood swings
  • Problems following through on commitments
  • Inability to cope with stress
