Adult and College Student Programs

We offer a full range of evaluation and treatment services for adults of all ages, including college students who have been diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy for Adult ADHD

This evidence-based program employs cognitive-behavioral methods to address and remediate adult difficulties with time management, organization, and planning. The modality we use was the subject of a formal efficacy study supported by a grant from the National Institute of Mental Health and resulted in a significant improvement, both clinically and statistically. Specific strategies include awareness of ADHD deficits; prioritizing, scheduling, and use of planners; overcoming procrastination; organizational systems; follow-through on tasks; and long-range planning. The program also addresses comorbid symptoms of anxiety and depression. It occurs in two-hour weekly small group sessions for 12 weeks.

This program has been updated to provide an introduction to mindfulness skills.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy-Informed Advanced Group for Adult ADHD

This program employs dialectical behavior therapy strategies to address resistance to one’s schedule. Strategies addressed include regulation of emotions and interpersonal effectiveness skills. The program occurs in weekly small group sessions for 6 weeks.

Only individuals who complete the initial Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Adult ADHD program are eligible for this group.

College Student ADHD Treatment Program

Our program for college students with ADHD also calls upon cognitive-behavioral methods to address and remediate difficulties college students may experience with time management, organization, and planning. We address prioritizing goals, effectively taking advantage of supportive campus resources, employing learning and distraction control strategies to improve studying, organizing space and maintaining organizational systems, coping with emotional setbacks, overcoming procrastination, and planning ahead for long-term assignments and career building.

The program is administered in a small-group format for 4, 8, or 12 sessions, depending on the time of year.
