The Facts About Attention Deficit Disorder

Attention deficit disorder, also known as ADD, is a disorder affecting both children and adults. ADD may go undiagnosed, often mistaken for frequent daydreaming, fatigue, and other common issues. If ADD goes undiagnosed and untreated, it can lead to serious complications in your life, including:

  • Relationship issues
  • Poor work or school performance
  • Depression and anxiety

You may have attention deficit disorder if you are experiencing:

  • Problems when focusing on details
  • Difficulty listening and following directions correctly
  • Issues with getting or staying organized
  • Frequently forgetting or losing things
  • Being distracted easily

If you are experiencing one or more of the signs and symptoms listed above, you should schedule an ADD evaluation and consultation with your mental health professional. The evaluation includes a checklist of symptoms that you are experiencing. In addition to interviewing you, others may be contacted, including members of your household and coworkers.

Your mental health professional may recommend several treatment options to help manage attention deficit disorder. Treatment may include:

  • Behavioral therapy, to help enhance focus and concentration to improve performance
  • Lifestyle modifications, to promote good mental and physical health through a diet high in nutrients, and regular exercise.
  • Medication therapy enhances how the brain functions, and improves concentration and focus.
