ADHD and Behavior Disorders Center

Children and teens with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or behavior disorders struggle with symptoms that interfere with their lives and can put them on a collision course with parents, teachers and classmates. The right care can give them the tools they need to succeed in school and to form healthy, satisfying relationships with family and friends.

When medication may be helpful, our team works with board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrists at the Child Mind Institute or partners with your own physician. Our psychiatrists offer expert consultation on whether medication can improve treatment outcome, and provide ongoing medication management when needed.Conditions we treat include: attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), conduct disorder (CD), disruptive mood dysregulation disorder (DMDD) and intermittent explosive disorder (IED).
