ADHD Treatment and Support at MPL Wellness, NP in Psychiatry, PLLC


Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

One of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders, it’s a chronic condition including attention difficulty, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. It’s usually first diagnosed in childhood and often lasts into adulthood.

Information from an independent source, such as family members or spouses for adult patients and from a teacher in the case of children, is needed for diagnosis.

Medication Management

ADHD medications can help improve impulsivity, inattentiveness, and hyperactivity symptoms of ADHD. The improvement can help children with ADHD do better in school and enable relationships with teachers, peers, and family. In adults, medication can improve focus and increase attentiveness.

If you are previously diagnosed, on medication, and it’s working well for you, then we’ll continue to monitor and manage that medication. If medication is needed, and you agree to the plan, you will be started on medication; then, we will meet on a regular basis to evaluate the effectiveness of the medication, make changes if needed, and assess for any side effects. It will be necessary to maintain regular routine follow-ups to continue getting your medications refilled.

Supportive Therapy

In some cases, the most effective mental health treatment includes medication use and counseling or psychotherapy. Supportive therapy will be provided if needed. Will recommend a referral to a counselor or psychotherapist if more involved treatment is deemed to be beneficial.
