Discover the Difference

Personalized ADHD Care Makes

ADHD has no cure, but plenty of people live normal, happy lives with the right treatment.

We specializes in individualized ADHD treatment—with medication or without—and we’ve developed time-tested programs to help you regain control of your life.

Finding the proper medication is critical to properly treating your ADHD, alleviating its symptoms, and allowing you to enjoy a healthy and balanced life. While our San Diego-based psychiatric providers can provide online ADHD prescriptions, they first need to conduct a thorough assessment to verify the cause of your symptoms.

Medicine helps, but it’s not the only answer. ADHD management without medication is possible. Behavioral therapy approaches ADHD treatment without drugs and, instead, encourages beneficial lifestyle changes. We offer regular counseling and guidance to help improve focus, enhance organization, and address other problem areas.
Start Your Journey to Healing Today

Our holistic approach to ADHD management focuses on healing the whole person rather than simply treating the symptoms of an illness. A combination of behavioral therapy, medication, and wellness activities, our holistic ADHD treatment option sets our San Diego psychiatric services apart, as only a few clinics offer this program (if any at all).

Mental Health Condition

Understanding ADHD

Adults with ADHD can live a challenging life—many struggle with staying focused, sitting still, or finishing even the simplest tasks.

With the right treatment strategies, individuals with ADHD can learn to manage their symptoms and thrive in different aspects of life—and this is precisely what our San Diego adult ADHD specialists are committed to providing.

What Is ADHD?

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental disorder that affects 2.5% of adults. It’s a diverse and complex condition that manifests differently among individuals. ADHD symptoms include developmentally inappropriate levels of inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity.

Although there’s increasing evidence suggesting a genetic component to ADHD, scientists have not yet identified a specific cause for the disorder.

ADHD is commonly identified in childhood. However, diagnoses are sometimes overlooked during this stage, and many adults with ADHD don’t realize they have it.

Symptoms of ADHD

ADHD can manifest in three primary presentations, each highlighting distinct symptom patterns:

Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive Presentation.

Hyperactivity refers to excessive movement, while impulsivity refers to making decisions or acting without considering the consequences.

Frequently Asked Questions About ADHD

Whether you’re seeking information for yourself, helping a loved one, or simply looking to deepen your understanding of ADHD, Peak Wellness is here to support your journey. This section contains information that can help provide clarity and insight into the disorder

The American Psychiatric Association defines attention-deficit hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) as a chronic and debilitating mental disorder that manifests in inattention (inability to keep focus), hyperactivity (excess movement inappropriate to the setting), and impulsivity (hasty acts occurring at the moment without thought). It’s important to note that these observed manifestations are not because the individual is defiant or unable to understand tasks or instructions.

Symptoms often appear in childhood, but ADHD can persist into adolescence and adulthood. Some individuals may not receive a diagnosis until later in life. Here are the three main types of ADHD with their symptoms:

  • Predominantly Inattentive Presentation. This refers to challenges with staying on task, focus, and organization.

    • Fails to pay close attention to details and makes careless mistakes
    • Struggles with staying focused on tasks or activities
    • Does appear to listen when spoken to
    • Does not follow through on instructions
    • Struggles with organizing tasks and work
    • Avoids or dislikes tasks requiring sustained mental effort
    • Often loses things
    • Gets easily distracted
    • Forgets daily tasks

  • Predominantly Hyperactive-Impulsive Presentation.Hyperactive-Impulsive Presentation. Hyperactivity refers to excessive movement, while impulsivity refers to making decisions or acting without considering the consequences.

    • Fidgets with hands or feet; squirms in chair
    • Struggles with remaining seated
    • Extreme restlessness
    • Unable to do leisure activities quietly
    • Always on the go, as if driven by a motor
    • Talks excessively
    • Blurts out answers before questions are completed
    • Struggles with waiting or taking turns
    • Interrupts or intrudes on others

  • Combined Presentation. This includes both inattentive and hyperactive-impulsive symptoms.

The exact cause is unknown, but there’s growing evidence that a combination of genetic, environmental, and neurological factors contribute to it.

ADHD diagnosis involves a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, including the following:

  • Review of symptoms with descriptions from the patient and caregivers
  • Completion of scales and questionnaires by the patient, caregivers, and teachers
  • Psychiatric and medical history
  • Family history
  • Input from parents, teachers, or other caregivers about education, environment, and upbringing
  • Medical evaluation

For adults, the comprehensive evaluation typically includes:

  • Review of past and current symptoms
  • Medical exam
  • Medical history
  • Completion of adult rating scales or checklists

Depending on a person’s specific needs, managing ADHD can include behavioral therapies, lifestyle adjustments, and medication. Peak Wellness’s flagship program—holistic treatment—is designed to address ADHD in all its aspects. We combine medication, non-medication, and wellness routines while our care providers monitor your progress and make adjustments if needed.

When it comes to ADHD medication management (online or in person), working with psychiatric providers who specialize in the disorder is crucial for alleviating symptoms, enhancing focus and concentration, and improving one’s overall quality of life.

Medications, combined with behavioral therapy or holistic treatment, can work wonders for adults who struggle with the disorder. However, our psychiatric providers at Peak Wellness understand that the medicines need to be carefully prescribed and adjusted based on the individual’s state of health and response.

Self-medicating using energy drinks, prescription drugs for ADHD, and coffee can be risky. If you’re looking for the best meds for adult ADHD, our psychiatric nurse practitioners are more than happy to help. Contact us to schedule an online appointment!

Thanks to technological advancements and healthcare innovations, you can now get an ADHD prescription online!

Committed to making ADHD care and support convenient and accessible for everyone, forward-thinking practices like Peak Wellness offer online prescription appointments for ADHD patients throughout California. Here’s how that works:

  • Schedule a one-on-one online appointment with our San Diego-based ADHD specialist.
  • The provider will listen to your specific concerns and work with you to develop a treatment plan that supports your well-being and helps you thrive
  • If medication is necessary to manage your condition, your provider sends your prescriptions electronically to your pharmacy in California during your telepsychiatry appointment, saving you time and money!

While ADHD treatment with medication is the go-to option for most adults, a drug-free treatment plan is still possible!

If you are an adult in San Diego considering ADHD treatment without medications, here are some steps you can take:

  • Diet changes
  • Decluttering
  • Caffeine moderation
  • Mindfulness and meditation
  • Prioritization exercises

It’s important to note, however, that when it comes to wellness and ADHD management, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Every patient is unique, meaning their ADHD treatment plan may differ. A no-medication treatment may work for one patient but not for another.

We believe in taking a holistic approach to mental health, treating the whole person rather than simply managing the symptoms of an illness.

For our holistic approach to work, we need to take into account the multidimensional and complex nature of ADHD and come up with a treatment plan carefully crafted for each patient.

If you’re interested in learning how to cope with ADHD without meds, our experienced ADHD specialists are here to help. Schedule an appointment with us today!
