Private clinic for ADHD / ADD

Defeat the inner restlessness

Many people think of ADHD / ADD as a childhood disorder. However, it is estimated that up to 4.5% of adults suffer from this condition. The symptoms in adulthood can be unspecific and varied, so that the underlying disease is not always recognized. In addition to the main symptoms such as attention deficit disorder, impulsivity and hyperactivity, there is restlessness, lack of concentration and problems in organizing everyday and professional life. With professional therapeutic help, attention (hyperactivity) deficit disorder can be treated effectively and sustainably. Learn more in our patient information on the topic of ADHD / ADD.

In our clinic we also have the possibility to carry out a guideline-based ADHD diagnosis. In addition to a detailed anamnestic exploration, this includes the implementation of validated psychological procedures and tests.

If there is sufficient evidence of an ADHD or ADS diagnosis in adulthood, there is the possibility to adjust the patients with pharmacotherapeutics. The choice of medication is made individually and according to the most current guidelines. Efficacy and tolerability are continuously evaluated closely under inpatient conditions. At the same time, ADHD-specific behavioral therapy individual interventions take place.

Causes

ADHD / ADD does not occur newly in adulthood. It has existed since childhood and may not have been recognized or classified as such at the time.

Basically, it can be assumed that there is no determinable trigger that alone is sufficient to explain the development. In most cases, various factors interact:

  • Genetic factors (often inherited)
  • Neurological factors (structural changes in the brain and disorders of neurotransmitters, especially the ratio of dopamine and norepinephrine plays a role)
  • Psychosocial factors (upbringing and environment)
  • External influences (pregnancy and birth complications and prematurity)
