The rehab I went to was really good. I went to Avery's House. It was welcoming, accepting, and they really do care about us. It was literally a house so it didn't feel like a hospital or treatment center at all.
Teens diagnosed with ADHD often have other disorders or issues contributing to their difficulty functioning at home or school.
Teens diagnosed with ADHD should be screened for several other mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, and learning disorders. Addressing all issues simultaneously will lead to the most successful outcomes.
Due to the nature of the condition, children and teens may suffer from some secondary consequences of ADHD.
Teens with ADHD may have more difficulty making or sustaining friends. Children with ADHD may be rejected by peers because of their behaviors, or sometimes they may not engage as other children do.
Due to inattentiveness and impulsiveness, a teen with ADHD may be more prone to injuries than other children. This puts them at higher risk for injuries that could have otherwise been avoided if they were to follow the rules or pay attention.
Anxiety is the second most diagnosed mental disorder in children ages 3-17
The symptoms of ADHD can be managed with medications as well as therapy. A combination of methods is often used in children and teens struggling with ADHD
FDA-approved medications used to treat ADHD can be divided into stimulants and non-stimulants.
Stimulant drugs are the most commonly used drug in treating the disorder. It may seem counterintuitive. However, the drugs have a calming effect on people with ADHD.
They work by increasing the amounts of dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain.
Some of the most common stimulant class medications include Adderall, Ritalin, and Concerta.
These drugs help to improve concentration.
Non-stimulants are used in patients that don’t respond well to stimulant-type medications.
These drugs have different mechanisms in the brain. For example, Strattera is a drug that blocks norepinephrine uptake in the brain. This allows there to be more available in the brain.
Non-stimulant drugs take longer to see a positive effect than stimulant drugs.
Medication in the treatment of ADHD should be monitored by a healthcare practitioner. Patients should be monitored when starting the medication to watch for any side effects. Dosing may also be adjusted as needed.(855) 506-1906
