A major emphasis of OPA is the identification and treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) throughout the life span. Often misdiagnosed or over-diagnosed, OPA offers comprehensive screening / evaluation in order to conclude a definitive diagnosis. Assessments are done through a thorough initial psychiatric interview, as well as with the use of collateral history and symptom checklists and/or psychological testing when necessary. This process also aids in the development of an integrative treatment plan.
OPA providers possess a great deal of experience in identifying and treating ADHD and associated conditions such as mood disorders, anxiety disorders and learning disabilities. Often times, coaching and counseling are essential in the treatment of ADHD.
