Comprehensive ADHD Treatment at Greater Houston Family Medicine

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder that affects individuals across various age groups, significantly impacting their daily functioning, academic performance, and interpersonal relationships.

ADHD is characterized by persistent patterns of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity that extend beyond typical developmental levels. While the precise etiology of ADHD remains multifactorial, research suggests genetic predispositions, alterations in neurotransmitter pathways, and environmental influences contribute to its manifestation.

At Greater Houston Family Medicine, we recognize the importance of comprehensive and evidence-based ADHD treatment tailored to meet each patient's unique needs.

Diagnostic Evaluation and Assessment

Our approach to ADHD treatment begins with a thorough diagnostic evaluation conducted by our experienced healthcare professionals. This assessment includes a comprehensive review of medical history, behavioral observations, and standardized rating scales to accurately identify ADHD symptoms and determine the appropriate course of treatment.

Multimodal Treatment Strategies

Effective ADHD treatment often involves a multimodal approach encompassing various interventions tailored to address the specific challenges and needs of each patient. Our treatment modalities may include:

  1. Medication Management: Prescription medications, such as stimulants (e.g., methylphenidate, amphetamine derivatives) and non-stimulants (e.g., atomoxetine, guanfacine), play a crucial role in targeting core ADHD symptoms, including inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. Our healthcare providers carefully evaluate medication options and monitor treatment response to optimize therapeutic outcomes while minimizing potential side effects.
  2. Behavioral Therapy: Behavioral interventions, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), behavioral parent training, and classroom-based interventions, aim to enhance executive functioning skills, improve impulse control, and promote adaptive coping strategies. These evidence-based approaches empower individuals with ADHD and their families to effectively manage symptoms and navigate daily challenges.
  3. Family-Centered Care and Support: We recognize the integral role of families in the treatment and management of ADHD. Our team provides comprehensive psychoeducation, guidance, and support to parents and caregivers, equipping them with the knowledge and skills necessary to create supportive home environments, implement behavioral strategies, and foster positive parent-child relationships.
