ADHD Treatment

Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a very common mental health condition that not only affects children and adolescents, but can also continue into adulthood. Characterized by symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness, those with ADHD often face a number of different complications on a regular basis. In most cases children and adolescents with ADHD will have problems paying attention or concentrating, can’t seem to follow instructions, are easily bored or frustrated with tasks, tend to move constantly, and will act impulsively. Additionally, they may struggle with low self-esteem and have trouble with interpersonal relationships. While there is no cure for ADHD, treatment can greatly improve symptoms and make a huge difference in a child’s life.

Helping A Loved One

Living with a child who has ADHD can be frustrating and overwhelming, often leaving you feeling that there is nothing you can do to help the situation. As a parent you can help your child overcome daily challenges, direct their energy into more positive arenas, and improve the overall wellbeing of the family. You set the stage for your child’s emotional and physical health so it is important that you positively influence the symptoms of your child’s disorder. Here are some helpful tips: 

  • Keep things in perspective 
  • Don’t sweat the small stuff 
  • Be willing to make consequences 
  • Believe in your child 
  • Take care of yourself so that you can take care of your child 
  • Seek support 
  • Follow a routine 
  • Use clocks and timers 
  • Simplify your child’s schedule 
  • Create a quiet place 
  • Do your best to be neat and organized 
  • Set clear expectations and rules 

Why Consider Treatment

For children and adolescents with ADHD is it very important that they seek professional care because without treatment, ADHD will begin to interfere with their school performance and in some cases leads to disciplinary action. Children with ADHD may have a difficult time making and keeping friends and as a result may become socially isolated, leading to low self-esteem. Additionally, adolescents with ADHD are at a higher risk for developing conduct disorder, depression, substance abuse problems, or an anxiety disorder. Furthermore, teens with ADHD are at a higher risk for car accidents, pregnancy, and engagement in risky behaviors. However, when treated with medication and psychotherapy most individuals see a decrease in some of their symptoms.  

The earlier that ADHD is identified, diagnosed, and an individualized treatment and education plan is put in place the sooner the child can begin to adjust to life with ADHD. Through treatment many adolescents are able to learn to focus their behaviors, develop their own personal strengths, minimize the disruptive behavior, and be able to become more productive and successful individuals. For adolescents that are struggling with symptoms of ADHD, especially when accompanying sexually maladaptive behavior, a residential treatment program that specializes in treating both disorders is more often than not going to be the best option for your child. Not only does a residential treatment program provide you child with a safe, structured environment, but all distracts of the outside world will have been removed so they can place all of their energy into the healing process. Additionally, residential programs provide closely monitored medication management and a variety of therapeutic methods all designed to get both the ADHD and inappropriate sexual behaviors under control so your child can reintegration back into life at home.  

Philosophy & Benefits

Resolute remains the only treatment center in the state of Indiana that exclusively treats adolescent males with sexually maladaptive disorders. We are committed to providing the best care in the least restrictive setting possible and it is our unwavering goal to return each child to the community as a productive and responsible member of society. At Resolute we believe that each child and family is unique and that they have inherited strengths that can be built upon to guide and support the treatment process. We are dedicated to ensuring the success of each child, the reunification of every family, and the longstanding happiness deserved by each individual.  

Types of Treatment

At Resolute Treatment Center, we offer a unique, multifaceted therapeutic program that is designed to give every child the chance to succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. The treatment at Resolute is guided by highly qualified, expertly trained, and compassionate caring professionals. We offer a wide variety of therapeutic interventions that helps children maximize their potential through recreational interventions, clinical interventions, strong academic programming, and positive relationship building with peers and adults. At Resolute, we believe that when children explore and discover their inherent strengths in a structured, nature-based environment, their self-esteem, compassion, coping skills, and social skills will improve. In order to help our patients achieve all of their goals, the following treatment methods are executed throughout their stay at Resolute: 

Medication management: In most instances stimulant medication is used to help alleviate some of the symptoms associated with ADHD. All patients meet with a psychiatrist at least once a month in order to ensure the effectiveness of any medication that is prescribed and to make any changes that may be necessary. 

Individual therapy: Patients participate in a minimum of one individual therapy session per week, but more sessions can be added based on individual needs. These sessions are designed to be a time for adolescents to meet one-on-one with a therapist in order to discuss concerns and to focus on the development and application of new skills. 

Group therapy: Group sessions are held daily and include both psycho-educational and process groups, including a daily sexual process group. These sessions are curriculum-based and trauma-focused. Special ancillary groups are also held regularly and include topics such as assault cycles, trauma outcomes, and healthy relationships. 

Family therapy: At Resolute, we view family involvement in the treatment process as a necessary part of ensuring that each child’s treatment is both effective and long lasting. Family sessions are held at a minimum of once every two weeks, but more are added when requested or deemed appropriate. 

School programming: We know how important a child’s education is and so we make sure that each patient receives the services he needs in order to remain on track educationally. Our onsite school is fully accredited and meets daily from 8:00am to 3:00pm. 

In addition to the previously mentioned services, Resolute also offers the following: 

  • Psychological testing 
  • Clinical polygraph testing (when necessary) 
  • Relapse prevention and protection planning 
  • Reunification and aftercare planning 

Continuing Care

At Resolute Treatment Center, we recognize that recovery is an ongoing process and does not end when an adolescent leave our program. In order to ensure continued success, our multidisciplinary staff works at creating thorough aftercare planning for each patient. We work intensively with adolescents as they become reunified with their families and begin reintegrating back into the community.  

For those adolescents who are not yet ready to, or are unable to, return home, but no longer require the intensive treatment of the residential setting, Resolute offers two step-down group homes, Success and Polaris, for those patients who have successfully completed residential programming. These homes provide an open residential setting that is less restrictive, yet still provides 24 hour supervision. 

Whatever your child’s long-term needs may be, Resolute Treatment Center will do all that we can to ensure continued success and lasting recovery so that he can move forwards toward a happy, healthy, and productive future.
