Starting ADHD therapy

What is ADHD therapy?

At Thriveworks, we offer ADHD therapy, which is an effective treatment for managing attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms such as inattention, inability to sit still, and lack of self-control. It can be used as an alternative to ADHD medication or used in tandem.

How does ADHD therapy work?

ADHD therapy works by using behavioral interventions — focusing on helping the individual develop organization skills, improve time management, and work on adaptive behaviors. A range of therapies are effective in helping people manage their ADHD and, sometimes, both individual and family therapy are important, particularly when the individual with ADHD symptoms is a child.

Symptoms of ADHD

Common symptoms of ADHD include:

  • Inattention and difficulty focusing on tasks
  • Impulsivity and acting without thinking
  • Hyperactivity or restlessness

Can ADHD develop as a coping mechanism?

ADHD is not a coping mechanism—but is instead affected by both genetics and environmental factors. The skilled therapists at Thriveworks in Jackson, MS know how to treat the unique triggers and stressors that may influence the severity of someone's ADHD symptoms.

Can someone with ADHD lead a normal life?

Yes—many individuals with ADHD live successful, “normal” lives. Individuals with ADHD are not abnormal.

What kind of therapy is best for ADHD?

Common approaches to ADHD therapy include medication management, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), behavioral therapy, psychoeducation, and parent training.

Is ADHD counseling conducted in person or online?

ADHD counseling is conducted both in person and online, depending on the individual's preferences and their therapist's availability.

How long does ADHD counseling last?

The length of ADHD therapy can differ based on individual requirements and treatment objectives, spanning from a few weeks to several months or extending further, contingent on progress and personal needs.

Damon has always been a star student. However, fourth grade is turning out to be a bit different. Damon is having trouble paying attention in class, and his teacher catches him staring out the window during most lectures. He can’t seem to keep his locker and desk organized, and he loses his homework frequently. Damon’s parents are worried because his grades are starting to slip. What’s going on with their son?

Have you ever felt like Damon? Have you noticed a change in your child’s behavior or performance in school? Damon is experiencing symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Symptoms of ADHD include hyperactivity, inattention, and impulsivity, making it difficult for someone with the condition to perform at work or school.

Thankfully, treatment for ADHD is available. Working with a mental health professional like a therapist, counselor, or psychiatrist can help children and adults living with ADHD. They can provide testing and diagnosis to confirm the presence of ADHD and create customized treatment plans to improve the disorder’s symptoms.

Working with a professional from Thriveworks Counseling in Jackson, MS, can help you or your child manage ADHD. You can get started quickly –– call our office to set up your first appointment.

Common ADHD Symptoms: What To Look For

ADHD is common in both children and adults. Children can be diagnosed as early as four years of age, and adult ADHD can go undiagnosed for years. These are some of the most commonly seen symptoms for adults and children with ADHD:

  • Difficulty paying attention to details
  • Trouble following instructions
  • Avoiding or disliking repetitive tasks
  • Frequently losing items
  • Forgetfulness
  • Trouble staying organized
  • Fidgeting
  • Excessive talking
  • Interrupting others
  • Being unable to concentrate on tasks
  • Impulsive behavior

There are three main types of ADHD that impact people in different ways: the hyperactive/impulsive type, the inattentive type, and the combined type. Mental health professionals can diagnose ADHD by examining which symptoms are present. Knowing the kind of ADHD present allows a professional to create a custom treatment plan and manage the disorder.

Is ADHD holding you back at work or in school? Is your child struggling in the classroom? Consider calling our office at Thriveworks Counseling in Jackson, MS, to schedule an appointment with a mental health professional.

What to Expect During ADHD Treatment

Diagnosing children with ADHD can be challenging. Many of the most common ADHD symptoms, like inattentiveness and excess energy, are commonly seen in children. ADHD is usually diagnosed when a child is much more hyperactive or inattentive than is typical, and the symptoms interfere with other areas of life.

Living with ADHD can make life more difficult, but the disorder can be treated by a mental health professional. Most treatment plans will use medication or therapy, but many mental health professionals will use a combination of the two.

Therapies can help treat ADHD in both children and adults. Psychotherapy will be different for each case depending on a person’s specific experience with the disorder. For example, family therapy can help children with ADHD learn to manage their symptoms. If your child has ADHD, a therapist or counselor can help you learn specific ways of talking to and interacting with your child that can help them improve their behavior and attention.

Medication is another commonly used treatment for ADHD. Medication can help people think and pay attention more easily. Stimulant and non-stimulant medications have been used safely for decades in both children and adults. Psychiatrists can recommend and prescribe medications for their clients. Therapists and counselors can also work with psychiatrists to find a medication that would help their clients.

Working with an expert on the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD can make the condition much more manageable. Mental health professionals from Thriveworks Counseling in Jackson, MS are experts in helping people overcome ADHD –– call our office today to get started.
