Getting an attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) diagnosis can bring about a range of emotions—uncertainty, concern, and perhaps relief as it validates the challenges you or a loved one may have been facing. 

Yet, amidst the initial whirlwind of emotions, it’s important to remember that treating and managing ADHD is possible.

At Navita Health, we offer comprehensive and collaborative treatment that is tailored to the unique needs of people with ADHD.

Read on to learn what to expect from ADHD treatment and our approach to whole-person wellness while embracing hope of a brighter tomorrow. 

How Does ADHD Treatment Work?

ADHD results from a dysregulation in the neurotransmitter systems, particularly dopamine and norepinephrine, which play important roles in attention, impulse control, and executive function.

ADHD treatment aims to address the core symptoms of the condition to improve overall functioning and quality of life. Symptoms of ADHD can include: 

  • Difficulty paying attention
  • Impulsivity
  • Hyperactivity
  • Challenges with organization and time management

Treatment typically combines psychotherapy, behavioral interventions, ADHD medications, skills training, lifestyle changes. 

Other science-backed holistic therapies are combined with these practices to offer comprehensive wellness and the reinforcement of positive behaviors for long-term care.

At Navita Health, our approach to ADHD treatment aligns with the whole-person philosophy. We understand that each person’s journey with ADHD is unique. Thus, we create personalized treatment plans to address specific needs and goals.

Whether it’s through therapy, medication management, or holistic interventions, our team is dedicated to providing comprehensive support every step of the way.

ADHD Treatment Services

We treat ADHD with multidisciplinary, evidence-based interventions that address the diverse needs of people with ADHD. 

From medication management to therapeutic modalities and alternative approaches, our goal is to provide holistic care rooted in compassion, care, and support. 

At Navita, you can choose from residential treatment or outpatient mental health programs.

ADHD treatment options include:

Medication Management

We partner with experienced healthcare providers who specialize in prescribing and monitoring medications to manage ADHD symptoms.

Medications that have been effective include:

  • Stimulants, like methylphenidate found in Ritalin, Concerta, Metadate, and Focalin, and amphetamine, the active ingredient in Adderall, Adderall XR, and Vyvanse. These increase the availability of dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain. They also restore balance and improve the functioning of neural circuits responsible for attention and impulse control. 
  • Non-stimulants with atomoxetines, found in Strattera, as well as Clonidine (Catapres, Kapvay), and Guanfacine (Tenex, Intuniv). These medications also target neurotransmitter systems and either inhibit the reuptake of norepinephrine or modulate the release of norepinephrine. 

Common side effects may include insomnia, decreased appetite, and mood changes. When taking these medications, discuss potential side effects with your mental healthcare provider to address any concerns promptly.

If you struggle with these side effects, your provider can either change your dosage, change your medication regime altogether, or explore other treatment options better for you.

One on One Therapy

One-on-one therapy, such as psychotherapy, is an integral part of ADHD treatment, offering a supportive environment to explore thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. 

Science-based psychotherapies like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) have proven effective in the treatment of ADHD.

They help people develop coping strategies, improve executive function skills, and enhance self-awareness.

Group Therapy

Group therapy provides people with ADHD the opportunity to connect with others facing similar challenges, fostering a sense of community and understanding. 

Through group sessions, participants can share experiences, learn from one another, and practice social skills and symptom management techniques in a supportive setting.

Family Therapy

Family therapy is crucial in ADHD treatment as it involves the entire support system in understanding and addressing the challenges associated with this mental health condition. 

Including family members in therapy sessions helps:

  • Foster awareness of ADHD symptoms and how it affects daily life
  • Improve communication patterns 
  • Strengthen family dynamics 
  • Implement strategies for managing ADHD symptoms 

With this type of therapy, parent training can also occur to create a safe, supportive, and advocacy-based environment for adolescents and family members living with ADHD.


DBT is a form of therapy that combines cognitive-behavioral techniques with concepts of mindfulness and acceptance. 

It can be beneficial for people with ADHD since it focuses on emotion regulation, distress tolerance, mindfulness, and interpersonal effectiveness.

DBT addresses ADHD challenges like emotional dysregulation and impulsivity by teaching practical skills to:

  • Manage intense emotions
  • Cope with distressing situations without reacting impulsively
  • Communicate effectively with others, helping to maintain relationships

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy

Mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT) combines elements of mindfulness meditation with cognitive-behavioral techniques. 

It helps people with ADHD become more aware of their thoughts and emotions, and learn to respond to them in a more adaptive manner. 

By cultivating present moment awareness and acceptance, MBCT can help reduce symptoms of impulsivity, distractibility, and emotional dysregulation.

Somatic Healing

Somatic healing approaches, such as yoga, tai chi, and body-oriented psychotherapy, recognize the interconnectedness of mind and body in ADHD treatment.

These practices focus on integrating physical sensations, movements, and breathwork to promote relaxation, stress reduction, and overall well-being.

Alternative Therapies

In addition to traditional therapy modalities, alternative therapies can complement ADHD treatment by offering unique avenues for self-expression, emotional processing, and symptom management. 

We offer a range of alternative therapies, including:

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR): A psychotherapy approach that helps people process traumatic experiences and reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression.
  • Art therapy: This uses creative expression to explore emotions, enhancing self-awareness, and promoting relaxation.
  • Animal-assisted therapy: Involves interactions with trained animals to improve mood, reduce stress, and enhance social skills.
  • Equine therapy: Uses interactions with horses to promote emotional regulation, build self-confidence, and improve communication skills.

Types of ADHD We Treat

ADHD manifests differently in each person, which is why we offer comprehensive treatment for various types of ADHD. 

There are three subtypes of ADHD—Inattentive, hyperactive-impulsive, and combined type—that come with unique challenges and varied treatment methods to improve overall well-being.

Inattentive Type

Inattentive Type ADHD, formerly known as ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder), is characterized by difficulties sustaining attention, organizing tasks, and following through on instructions or activities. 

People with this subtype may appear forgetful, disorganized, and easily distracted. Common symptoms include:

  • Difficulty paying attention to details and making careless mistakes
  • Trouble staying focused on tasks or activities
  • Forgetfulness in daily activities and frequently losing items
  • Avoidance or reluctance to engage in tasks that require sustained mental effort

Treatment for Inattentive Type ADHD typically involves a combination of stimulant or non-stimulant medications to improve focus and attention. 

It also includes behavioral therapy to address organizational skills, time management, and task completion strategies. 

Accommodations in educational or work settings may be necessary to support adolescent and adult ADHD with this subtype in managing their symptoms effectively.

Hyperactive-Impulsive Type

Hyperactive-Impulsive Type ADHD is characterized by excessive motor activity, impulsivity, and difficulty regulating behavior. 

People with this subtype may struggle to sit still, wait their turn, or think before acting. Common symptoms include:

  • Fidgeting, squirming in seat, or having tics
  • Difficulty remaining seated in situations where it is expected
  • Impulsive decision-making and speaking out of turn
  • Interrupting others or intruding on conversations or activities

Treatment for Hyperactive-Impulsive Type ADHD often involves: 

  • Medication, such as stimulants, to reduce hyperactivity and impulsivity 
  • Behavioral therapy to teach self-control strategies, impulse management techniques, and social skills

Creating structured environments and establishing clear routines can also help people with this subtype manage their symptoms more effectively.

Combined Type

Combined Type ADHD is the most common type of an ADHD diagnosis, characterized by a combination of symptoms related to inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. 

People with this subtype experience difficulties across multiple domains of functioning, impacting various aspects of daily life. Common symptoms include:

  • Inattention to details and difficulty sustaining focus
  • Hyperactivity, restlessness, and difficulty staying seated
  • Impulsivity, such as blurting out answers or interrupting others

Treatment for Combined Type ADHD typically involves a multifaceted approach incorporating medication, behavioral therapy, and environmental accommodations. 

By addressing both inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity, people with this subtype can develop comprehensive coping strategies and adaptive skills to manage ADHD effectively.

Who Will Benefit from ADHD Treatment?

ADHD treatment offers hope and support to people of all ages who struggle with the challenges associated with this mental disorder. 

While the symptoms of ADHD can vary widely from person to person, there are common signs to watch for that may indicate the need for treatment.

These may include: 

  • Parents who may notice symptoms of ADHD in their child, such as difficulty paying attention, impulsivity, trouble following instructions, behavioral changes, and hyperactivity, starting as early as preschool age.
  • Parents who find that their child’s ADHD symptoms interfere with their ability to establish routines, complete tasks, and maintain social relationships.
  • Adolescents with ADHD who may experience academic difficulties, such as poor concentration, disorganization, and forgetfulness, leading to lower grades and increased frustration.
  • Those struggling with time management, completing assignments, maintaining friendships, and impulse control that leads to risky behaviors, lower self-esteem, and difficulty regulating emotions in social situations.
  • Adults with ADHD who may have difficulty maintaining focus and attention in the workplace, have poor time management, and experience challenges in personal relationships. These symptoms can show up as poor job performance or frequent job changes, difficulty listening, forgetfulness, and strained relationships.

In each of these scenarios, seeking ADHD treatment may be the best option for long-term management of the disorder. 

Treatment can help you develop coping strategies, improve executive function skills, and enhance self-awareness. 

By addressing the underlying neurobiological factors contributing to ADHD and getting comprehensive, personalized care, you can achieve well-being and overall quality of life.
