Birmingham, Mich. — Birmingham Maple Clinic has launched individual treatment plans for Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), a developmental disorder of self-control, in the clinic’s Michigan treatment center for adult ADHD.

The clinic utilizes a full range of treatment options for both child and adult ADHD, which are developed into individualized plans that suit that patient’s needs and goals. Available treatments for adult ADHD includes psychiatric evaluation for medication, psychological testing, individual and/family therapy, psycho-education, seminars and lectures for family members and career coaching.

As reported by the clinic, this full-circle approach is the key to successfully treating adult ADHD, “According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 4.1 percent of the U.S. population has been diagnosed with adult-onset ADHD. Our research has found that to effectively treat ADHD, children and adult patients who have been diagnosed with the disorder greatly benefit from several different types of treatment.

In most cases that we see, patients respond much better to a personalized treatment plan versus just prescribing medication or having them attend counseling. “ reports Lori Edelson, the clinic’s spokesperson.

Providing mental health services since 1972, Birmingham Maple Clinic uses a team-based approach to treat a variety of mental illnesses and disorders. The staff is comprised of top individuals in the areas of Psychiatry, Psychology and Social Work, who work together at the clinic’s Michigan treatment center for adult ADHD, to design treatment programs for a variety of conditions.

“We are so proud to have professionals on our team who are some of the best in their areas of work. We utilize their knowledge on a daily basis to create treatment programs for adult ADHD, eating disorders, depression and other specialty areas.” added Edelson.
