ATTENTION DEFICIT AND HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER (ADHD) TREATMENT IN DR. BROTTMAN'S MANHATTAN OFFICE
If you have difficulty staying focused, are hyperactive, or find yourself making regular impulsive decisions you may have Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
At Dr. Brottman's New York office he diagnoses and treats Adult ADHD together with his experienced and caring team.
What is Adult ADHD?
Attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder is a psychiatric disorder defined by difficulty paying attention, hyperactivity, or impulsive actions. Most often manifesting themselves during pre-adolescence, ADHD’s symptoms can affect and stay with an individual well into adulthood. It’s estimated that 8 million adults suffer from ADHD, but very few of them are identified or treated for adult ADHD.
Someone with Adult ADHD may suffer from:
Inability to focus
Poor time management
Poor organizational skills
Employment and social problems
Other mental, physical or emotional problems may arise as a result of ADHD.
Payment & Insurance
Our services are provided exclusively on a self-pay basis. We do not accept any insurance plans but will provide you with the documentation needed to file for insurance reimbursement on your own.
These problems may range in severity, but it’s beneficial to understand and treat these in addition to your ADHD if you feel that you are suffering from them.
Treatment for your ADHD
Treatment of ADHD is most often a combination of medication and cognitive-behavioral therapy. If you have any co-occurring problems, such as substance abuse or depression, it’s useful to get treatment for both, as the issues can be interrelated. Treating only one problem while ignoring the other puts you at risk for relapse in the case of substance abuse, or a reemerging of symptoms in the case of other mental disorders.
Dr. Brottman's psychiatric and psychotherapy services provide individualized care to give you the help you need. Our clinical team strives to bring personal and effective mental health care to Manhattan. If you believe you may be suffering from ADHD, contact us at our office in Midtown to set up a consultation.
