Improving the Quality Of Life for Every Patient

ADD Treatment in Westfield, NJ

It’s hard to concentrate when your mind is racing. Stay focused and be successful in life with ADD treatment in Westfield, NJ. Turn to the experienced psychiatrists at Westfield Psychiatric Group who have an approach to patient care that is both collaborative and comprehensive. Specializing in helping people with attention deficit disorder, our team provides adult ADHD Treatment and adolescent ADD therapy.

ADD psychiatric treatment involves more than cognitive therapy and behavioral changes. Many times, medication is necessary to help a adolescence or adult control impulsive behavior, lack of focus, and other issues. ADD (attention deficient disorder) and ADHD (attention deficient hyperactivity disorder) are highly genetic, brain-based syndromes affecting brain function, cognition, behaviors, and even emotions. Using a combination of medicine and therapy, individuals with either condition can live happy, successful, and fulfilling lives. Some of the medicines we use to normalize brain activity include:

  • Ritalin
  • Dexedrine
  • Adderall / Adderall XR
  • Concerta
  • Vyvanse
  • Focalin XR

Comprehensive Attention Deficit Disorder Treatment

If you’re dealing with ADHD or ADD, you are not alone. Approximately 11 percent of children ages 4 through 17 have ADHD, and about 4 percent of adults have the disorder. It is sometimes difficult to diagnose, especially in adults. That’s why it’s so important to depend on our highly skilled psychiatrists for a comprehensive evaluation and treatment. Among many other things, we look for some of the following symptoms below when diagnosing ADD or ADHD. Keep in mind, if any one (or a combination of symptoms) interferes with daily functioning, it warrants a reason for adult or child adolescent treatment.
