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.
