ADHD Testing and Management

ADHD, or attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, is a condition that often starts in childhood and continues into the adult years. Knowing the signs of ADHD and getting the right help is essential for thriving in school, work, and life in general. In many cases, the symptoms of ADHD include trouble focusing, disorganization, poor time management, and trouble performing at school or in the workplace. At Serenity Mental Health Centers, we understand that ADHD can impact lives in a way that makes it difficult to stay motivated. Our goal is to help each patient take back their life by offering a comprehensive ADHD test, diagnostics, and management methods tailored to their individual needs and lifestyle.

When determining an ADHD diagnosis, we begin with a thorough ADHD test that might include specific tests, such as the computer-based QbTest, discussions, and a review of your medical history. After we have reached a diagnosis, we will discuss the treatments we offer that are best suited for your situation. We want to support our patients on their journey to take back their lives, which includes personalized treatment options that fit their unique needs. Depending on the full spectrum of your medical history and mental health needs, prescription medication, or a combination of therapies could be included in your treatment plan.

  • Clear Understanding: We take into account all aspects of each patient's diagnosis and medical needs to ensure their treatment plan provides the ideal solutions and optimal outcomes.

  • Help Just for You: We do not believe that one-size-fits-all with ADHD treatment and will assess the personal needs of each patient and situation before recommending a management plan.

  • Better Life Quality: Our goal is to help every one of our patients attain a high quality of life through ongoing treatment while teaching ADHD management and coping skills.

  • Guidance Along the Way: Treatment doesn't end with a prescription. Part of our interventional psychiatry approach is to guide each patient through their diagnosis in order to help them manage their ADHD moving forward.

Tolulope's experience with TMS therapy has been excellent. She is patient and really kind, even if the initial consultation took some time to schedule.

Extremely educated about Ketamine therapy. My depression symptoms improved, despite the exorbitant cost.

Dr. Clay has given me my life, family, and friends back to me. When I first started seeing Dr. Clay, I was so depressed and anxious that I didn’t go out of the house. Dr. Clay’s medical assistant on my first appointment told me that he would never give up on me and he never has. Flash forward to now, and I’m seeing my friends, family, going out to run errands on my own, and even going to see my beloved sister in Colorado March 1st with our daughter. I am SO thankful for Dr. Clay and his team at Serenity Mental Health. They are a huge blessing and I feel so lucky to have found them!

My psychiatrist is named Dr. Colvin and he is an excellent person to count on for aid with mental health. He has prescribed medicine for me that has worked wonders in my life, and he continues to meet my concerns by providing more medication when needed. Alongside him, the staff is extremely flexible with their availability, and whenever I’ve needed to change a date on the calendar for appointments, they have been swift and generous to meet those needs as well. I’d recommend Serenity to anyone that is struggling to battle the demons in their head; they have changed my life and I know they will do the same for you as well.

Candidates for ADHD testing and management are individuals who consistently exhibit symptoms such as inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity, which interfere with daily life or normal functioning. This includes children who are facing challenges in school, such as difficulty focusing, staying organized, or following instructions, as well as adults who struggle with time management, restlessness, and maintaining focus in their professional or personal lives. When there's a noticeable pattern of these behaviors over time and across various settings, we suggest testing for ADHD. Additionally, those with a family history of ADHD or related learning and attention issues may also be considered strong candidates for assessment. Effective management of ADHD typically involves a combination of behavioral therapy, lifestyle adjustments, and possibly medication, tailored to each individual's unique needs.

How old do I need to be for ADHD testing?

Typically ADHD testing begins at 6 years old and up, depending on location. While it's frequently diagnosed during childhood, individuals of any age can be evaluated for ADHD.

Is medication the only treatment option for ADHD?

No, medication isn't the only treatment. Behavioral and lifestyle modifications can also be beneficial, as well as other therapies, such as TMS therapy. Our team will work with you to determine the treatment plan that is best for your needs.

What is the difference between ADD and ADHD?

ADD is an outdated term that is sometimes used interchangeably with ADHD (attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder). Even if someone doesn't display symptoms of hyperactivity, the diagnosis would still be ADHD.

After ADHD testing and management, you can expect a clearer understanding of your condition and a personalized plan to address your specific needs. The testing process may involve a thorough assessment, including interviews, questionnaires, and cognitive testing, to accurately diagnose ADHD. Once diagnosed, a tailored management plan will be developed, which may include medication, behavioral therapy, lifestyle changes, and educational support. Regular follow-up appointments will be essential to monitor progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan. You may experience improved focus, reduced impulsivity, and better organizational skills as you adhere to your management plan, leading to enhanced overall functioning and quality of life.

Our calm and optimistic environment is designed to give patients the best chance to understand their conditions and take control of their lives. From ADHD testing to the management of the disorder, we are dedicated to supporting you throughout you journey toward improved mental health.
