ADD/ADHD Treatment in Southern Califnoria
Let us help you today.
At Clear Recovery Center in Los Angeles, we help individuals break free from the reigns of addiction and mental health issues. Addiction, and issues such as depression and anxiety can stem from a number of factors, although it’s shown that neurological or mental disorders like ADHD can be more likely to cause a person to abuse substances and become anxious and depressed. At Clear Recovery, we help those struggling with ADHD regain control of their lives.
Clear Recovery Center can help you deal with ADHD by equipping you and your family with extensive knowledge about the disorder. We teach you coping methods and offer treatments that are proven to be effective. Our staff of trained professionals is dedicated to helping you secure your health and develop positive habits.
Without treatment, sufferers may struggle with day-to-day tasks and feel incapable of functioning normally. These feelings of inadequacy can lead to substance abuse or other mental health disorders that can further obstruct the road to properly managing ADHD or ADD.
Your ADHD does not have to rule your life. At Clear Recovery Center, we’ll help you manage it. Get in touch with us today by making an appointment at our clinic.
What is ADHD?
ADHD, also known as Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, is one of the most common mental disorders. It is usually diagnosed in childhood, but some people are not diagnosed until adulthood. It is a complex brain disorder that hinders a person’s self-management abilities.
It is most commonly diagnosed in children when it causes disruption in the classroom, affecting more boys than it does girls. Some symptoms include an inability to stay focused, excessive movement, and impulsivity.
If the condition is not diagnosed during childhood, symptoms in adults tend to manifest as disorganization, poor time management, restlessness and high levels of frustration.
Your ADHD doesn’t have to be a mystery. At CRC, we believe that understanding is the first step on the road to managing the condition. That’s why we do everything we can to teach coping mechanisms and positive habits.

Signs That You Are Suffering from ADHD/ADD
As an adult, you have likely picked up on signs of ADHD in yourself. These signs can present themselves as impulsive decisions, feeling easily distracted, or being unable to build close functioning relationships with others.
Do not ignore these symptoms. Instead, consult a professional who can conduct a medical evaluation.
Here are some signs that you may be suffering from ADHD. Your doctor will use these to evaluate your condition:
- Once you lose interest in something, you have a hard time maintaining focus even if you are required to complete something.
- You avoid beginning a long project or task.
- You are easily distracted by noise or people moving near you.
- You are unable to sit still and find yourself squirming after extended periods of inactivity.
- It is difficult for you to maintain attention on one thing.
- You struggle to remember things.
- You find it challenging to concentrate on a person or thing.
- You make decisions impulsively before considering the implications of that decision.
- You become over-involved in things that you enjoy doing and do not stop to take a break.
- You talk too much in social settings.
- You tend to lose things often.
At CRC, we recommend treatments based on the results of that evaluation. Learn more about our post-evaluation process by making an appointment.
How We Treat ADHD
Treatments for ADHD differ between recovery centers. Our approach at CRC is unlike the standard. We tailor our treatment plans to the individual. Every person who has ADHD struggles in a different way – and therefore needs targeted attention to their problem areas. A couple of methods we use regularly are:
Most people neglect to recognize some of the factors that contribute to the severity of ADHD. Because of chemical additives, excess sugar, and processed oils in many foods, your ADHD symptoms may be being heightened.
At Clear Recovery Center, we can help you by creating a personalized meal plan that meets all of your dietary needs while cutting down on additives and sugar. We will also provide an exercise regimen to keep you moving and release stress. We’ll conduct frequent health screenings that provide our team a clearer understanding of how to approach your wellness. We believe overall wellness plays a huge role in coping with ADHD.
Dependence on technology, a sedentary lifestyle, and addiction to drugs and alcohol can also heighten ADHD symptoms. If you let these factors run rampant, then your ADHD may spin out of control. We work closely with our patients to identify their inhibitors. We directly target these issues and therefore treat ADHD from its source.
With a program targeted towards your specific obstacles, Clear Recovery helps you change your lifestyle and outlook on life.
There are so many facets to ADHD, but our team is prepared to help you manage each one. Call CRC today to learn more about our personalized approach.
If sufferers of ADHD also struggle with substance abuse, a dual recovery program is the best course of treatment. It addresses both disorders and how they are intrinsically linked to each other, working to find a method of cutting the ties.
Upon the completion of an introductory treatment, we conduct an evaluation. This is so individuals can begin a rehab treatment for their addiction while simultaneously learning to control their ADHD.
For people suffering from ADHD and addiction, it’s important to manage anger. By learning to work through your emotions, you can avoid relapse and minimize impulsivity and high-risk behavior. At CRC, we believe this is a critical aspect of managing ADHD symptoms.
With a dual recovery program, patients can learn to cope with both disorders by managing each issue in relation to the other.
Another way to manage both ADHD and addiction is by nurturing relationships. Our programs at Clear Recovery Center allow patients to do this by immersing them in a community of individuals who are learning to control their conditions and addictions too.
By fostering feelings of community, patients can eradicate feelings of loneliness and boredom that may cause symptoms of addiction or ADHD to worsen.
Our program promotes self-care, positive actions, and physical health. We help our patients make better judgments. They take control of behaviors that otherwise are detrimental to their health. We help our patients reach a point of mental clarity that makes it easier for them to be self-sufficient.
To learn more about our programs, call our center today and discover the many ways we can help you manage your disorder.
WHAT WE TREAT
Co-occuring Addiction and Mental Health Issues
Substance use disorders can coincide with mental health or even multiple issues at once. That includes mood, developmental, eating, and behavioral disorders. Clear Recovery Center is equipped to handle a wide variety of co-occurring disorders.
How ADHD Affects Sufferers
CRC understands that ADHD is a dynamic illness and that sufferers experience many different and challenging symptoms. There are 3 main types of ADHD: inattentive, hyperactive/impulsive, or hybrid type.
- Inattention to detail and a tendency to make careless mistakes.
- Cannot stay focused on lengthy tasks.
- Fail to listen when spoken to or addressed.
- Choose not to partake in tasks that involve prolonged mental effort or stimulation.
- A tendency to lose or misplace items.
- Can be easily distracted.
- Fail to follow instructions.
- Struggle to organize.
- Constant fidgeting or squirming.
- Continuously interrupt others or intrude where they shouldn’t.
- Unable to do leisurely activities.
- Extremely impatient.
- Talk incessantly.
- Rushes to answer questions before it is permitted.
No specific causes for ADHD have been identified yet, but there is significant evidence that it could be genetic. Other factors that are linked to someone having ADHD include premature birth, a person’s mother drinking alcohol or smoking during pregnancy, and brain injury.
While there are no specific tests that can diagnose ADHD, family members or schoolteachers often recognize the symptoms in children. A healthcare professional, like a psychologist or pediatrician, can then verify through observations and other assessments whether the child can be classified as having ADHD.
In adults, the person may refer themselves to a doctor to be assessed for ADHD/ADD. It often comes as a relief to the person to finally have a formal diagnosis for what they have long suspected.
It’s thought that around 25% of adults treated for drug or alcohol abuse have been diagnosed with ADHD. Symptoms of ADHD can lead many people to seek out drugs in order to improve their mood, induce sleep, or cope with other negative aspects of the disorder.
