What is ADHD?

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder that often starts in childhood but can persist into adulthood. Those with ADHD have difficulties staying focused on tasks and controlling restless and impulsive behaviors, which cause conflicts at work, school, and home.

The root cause of ADHD isn’t clear, but risk factors for the condition can include exposure to toxins during pregnancy or as a young child. Premature babies and those who had a low birth weight might also be at a higher risk for ADHD.

Phoenix Pointe Psychiatry offers personalized care for ADHD in preteens, teens, and adults. The providers complete a psychiatric evaluation in-office to better understand your symptoms and determine what treatments you need to stay on track mentally, emotionally, and socially.

When should I schedule an evaluation for ADHD?

Schedule an evaluation at Phoenix Pointe Psychiatry if you or your child have symptoms of ADHD that are disruptive to your life and interfere with your success at school, work, or in social situations.

ADHD symptoms in kids and adults can include:

  • Excessive talking
  • Disorganization
  • Forgetfulness
  • Interrupting conversations
  • Unable to follow directions
  • Frequent fidgeting or running around
  • Engaging in reckless or impulsive behaviors

Since there isn’t a single test to diagnose ADHD, the Phoenix Pointe Psychiatry providers ask questions about your or your child’s symptoms. They also review your personal and family medical histories and may order blood work or other diagnostic tests to rule out underlying medical issues.

How is ADHD treated?

Treatment plans for ADHD typically involve a combination of lifestyle changes, mindfulness practices, therapy, and medications.

Phoenix Pointe Psychiatry emphasizes holistic treatments to optimize ADHD symptom relief. They may recommend strategies like:

  • Meditation
  • Physical exercise
  • Deep breathing techniques
  • Dietary improvements

If you or your child need stimulants or other medications to improve focus and calm impulsive behaviors, the providers can prescribe them. They provide medication management services to ensure you take the most effective ADHD medications and dosage to prevent underdosing and overdosing.

Counseling services are also available in-office to help you navigate ADHD challenges. The specialists can also refer you to a therapist for psychotherapy.
