What Is ADHD?
ADD or attention deficit disorder is a mood disorder often classified by difficulty concentrating and hyperactivity. Most often diagnosed in children, many adults make it to college age or older before receiving a diagnosis. A lack of education about the condition, access to mental health care, and stigmas around mental health treatment keep many people from the ADHD treatment they need.
In the 1990s, ADD was renamed ADHD to include hyperactive behavior like fidgeting, tapping, squirming, or rambling. Studies show ADHD can be inherited or developed from environmental factors and stress. ADHD symptoms include:
- Mood swings
- Low frustration tolerance
- Low-stress tolerance
- Trouble staying on task
- Interrupting others when talking
- Difficulty focusing
- Poor time management skills
- Frequent daydreaming
- Making spur-of-the-moment decisions without considering consequences
- Squirming or other repetitive movements
ADHD falls into two categories: those who struggle to focus on activities and those who experience hyperactivity. Both can make it hard for the person with ADHD and those around them to focus during work, school, and social activities.
Benefits of ADHD Treatment Programs
Medications like Adderall are common treatments for ADHD. Today, however, there are also alternative approaches without medication to help people understand and manage ADHD symptoms. ADHD treatment are highly individualized and helps clients become their best selves. Benefits of treatment include:
- Stress coping mechanisms
- Greater focus
- Increased states of calm
- Better productivity
- A greater understanding of self
- Compassion and empathy for others
ADHD treatment can help clients better know themselves and understand the world around them. It can also help loved ones understand the behaviors, thoughts, and belief systems of someone living with ADHD.
The more people learn about ADHD, the more they can reduce stigmas and help people find the support they need for their learning and work styles, as well as daily life.
