ADHD Treatment Center

Steps Recovery Center recognizes how vital the mind, body, and spirit are in their connection to the whole person. We take a holistic approach to treating ADHD that includes treating the whole person, and find that it tends to be more successful, especially since ADHD can affect every aspect of a person’s life. With a customized and individualized program, a holistic approach just makes sense. It affords an opportunity to meet the patient’s physical and psychological needs and allows them to engage physically, emotionally, and mentally.

Take That First Step

Information on ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders. Doctors typically diagnose this condition during childhood, and it follows a child into adulthood; however, they can also diagnose it in adults. Children with this disorder might have difficulty paying attention, controlling impulsive behaviors (acting without thinking about the consequences of their actions), and may be overly active. 

 

According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), several ADHD symptoms may be present in an individual before age 12. Many parents of children with ADHD report excessive motor activity during the toddler years. These characteristics can be challenging to distinguish from the inattentiveness, impulsivity, and hyperactive behavior typical of children under four. 

 

When a doctor diagnoses this disorder, they search for six or more symptoms in children, and they look for five or more symptoms in people age 17 and older. There are three types of ADHD: Predominantly Inattentive, Hyperactive-Impulsive, and Combined.

ADHD Predominately Inattentive Symptoms

Individuals with this type of ADHD may have difficulty doing the following:

  • Paying close attention to details, resulting in reckless mistakes
  • Sustaining attention when doing tasks
  • Paying attention (and even if they are it can seem like they aren’t listening)
  • Following instructions
  • Being organized
  • Finding things
  • Remembering to do daily activities

ADHD Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive Symptoms

People with this type of ADHD may do the following:

  • Have difficulty staying seated
  • Fidget with their hands or feet and squirm in their chair
  • Run around and climb on objects excessively (children) or show extreme restlessness (adults)
  • Find it challenging to engage in activities quietly
  • Act as if driven by a motor
  • Talk too much
  • Cut off people mid-conversation
  • Intrude upon others
  • Blurt out answers before someone finishes asking a question

ADHD Combined Symptoms

A person with combined ADHD will meet the criteria for both Predominantly Inattentive and Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive ADHD.

ADHD Treatment

Individuals with ADHD can benefit from staying at an inpatient treatment center. A combination of pharmacological therapies, evidence-based behavioral therapies, and mindfulness approaches can help someone manage their ADHD. An experienced medical team can work with patients by engaging them in a variety of therapeutic modalities catered to their needs. 

Therapy can help people express their stresses, anxieties, and frustrations so that they can work toward a healthier life. In an ADHD treatment program, therapists and life counselors can help patients re-set their thinking patterns and behaviors, overcome underlying trauma, and develop healthy coping mechanisms.

Different types of therapies include:

  • Individual therapy sessions
  • Group therapy sessions
  • Family therapy and counseling
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
  • Motivational Interviewing Therapy

If a person with ADHD has co-occurring conditions, such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, or substance abuse problems, staying in a controlled, safe environment can help them reclaim their life.

The staff and facility is amazing- Couldn’t ask for anything better. The program is well rounded with rec activities, equine therapy, gender therapy, group therapy, individual and couples therapy, and also attends various 12 Step support groups such as AA or NA. They also have family therapy and processing with options for individual settings or in a group. These help families understand what their loved ones who suffer from addiction is going through and how to support them, and also gives them their own support system.

This place saved my life! The therapists were very helpful, friendly and really cared about the clients wellbeing. The tech’s were alway helpful with meds and anything that was needed. House manager was amazing, had high expectations on job duties, and kept a very clean organized atmosphere. Food was always amazing. I never went hungry! The information and skills that I have learned and applied to my life are priceless. If you’re not willing to put forth the work to change your life this is not your place, but if you are this is the first Step to take. I Love everyone at Steps. Thank you for all your help

I’d been to other recovery centers before but this one was the best, it stuck because I was willing to do the work, and with the help I received from staff I am now celebrating a year of sobriety in a couple of days. Update; I’m now 18 months sober as of yesterday and I still keep in touch with my steps family. The lessons I learned at steps will stick with me for the rest of my life. Thank you for giving me my life back.
