Adult ADHD Program

Adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common condition affecting more than 4 percent of adults in the United States—many who remain undiagnosed and untreated. Without proper diagnosis and care, ADHD can create personal and professional difficulties, including relationship problems, substance abuse, and problems at work and school. 

Specialists at NYU Langone Psychiatry Associates offer comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for ADHD, including: 

  • comprehensive diagnostic evaluations
  • medication consultation and management
  • individual and group cognitive behavioral therapy 
  • neuropsychological testing

Led by program director Dr. Lenard Adler, our specialized adult program is unique in the New York metropolitan area. Our staff has been instrumental in designing screening and symptom assessment tools for the World Health Organization (WHO) to identify individuals at risk for adult ADHD, including the Adult ADHD Self-Report Scale Symptom Checklist and the Adult ADHD Self-Report Screener.

Research Studies and Clinical Trials

Doctors in the Adult ADHD Program are conducting several research studies to investigate new medications and treatments. To learn more, please call 646-754-4837 or email adultadhd2@nyumc.org.
