What is ADHD?

ADHD is a condition that affects your ability to pay attention and stay on task with responsibilities. The disorder also causes hyperactivity, restlessness, and impulsivity that negatively impact your physical, emotional, and social well-being.

ADHD symptoms often start in childhood but can persist into your adult life. The disorder may initially be misdiagnosed as disciplinary problems or emotional issues, especially in young children.

The root cause of ADHD isn’t clear, but you may be at higher risk for the condition due to your genetic history and environment. The disorder is more common in males than females and often co-occurs with learning disabilities and conditions like anxiety and depression.

Coded Healthcare & Behavioral Services offers compassionate care for adults and children with ADHD. The providers complete psychiatric assessments to confirm an ADHD diagnosis and customize a treatment plan to improve your quality of life.

When should I seek medical attention for ADHD?

Schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Coded Healthcare & Behavioral Services if you or your child has symptoms of ADHD, such as:

  • Forgetfulness
  • Disorganization
  • Inability to focus or pay attention
  • Difficulties following directions
  • Frequently making careless mistakes
  • Missing appointments or events

ADHD also causes hyperactive behaviors like fidgeting, running around, excessive talking, and interrupting conversations.

The providers evaluate your or your child’s symptoms and the effect they have on your success at school, work, home, and relationships. They customize a treatment plan to reduce the severity of ADHD symptoms and improve your ability to meet daily responsibilities.

How is ADHD treated?

Coded Healthcare & Behavioral Services offers personalized ADHD care plans for adults and adolescents.

The providers may recommend psychological counseling and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you understand your behaviors. Therapy also gives you tools you can use to boost your self-confidence and stay on track at school and work.

Medications may be necessary if therapy isn’t enough. The providers can prescribe medications that enhance your focus and calm restlessness or impulsive behaviors. They also supervise your use of the medications to prevent missed doses and unwanted side effects.

Coded Healthcare & Behavioral Services also offers resources for your child’s school and caregivers so everyone has the support they need to help your child thrive.
