Adults with ADHD have less stable relationships than those adults without ADHD.  Individuals with ADHD are twice as likely to be divorced and/or sepeated.  Less than half of those surveyed who are currently in relationships say they are “completely satisfied” with their relationship partners or loved ones, compared to 58% of those people surveyed without ADHD.

    My ADHD has made my wife basically hate me! I have never done anything to hurt her or any of my 4 children. At least not intentionally. I have not hit her, abused her, cheated on her, not even called her a bad name. I have constantly been working towards improving myself in more ways than I can remember. I have read personal development books and listened to audio programs. My actions and decisions have generally been focused on making my family’s lives better. I absolutely love my wife more than I even knew I could love another human being. Yet my ADHD has played a major role in the destruction of my family. She has verbally attacked me, even in front of the kids. She has moved out and even has another man in her life. Although she has very clearly stated that we will NEVER be together again, she has yet to serve me with divorce papers and has even told me that she always has hope and to take each day at a time. How do I even begin to believe that we could ever be together again, when she is with this other man? I know they have been intimate and it’s not like she’s telling him to give her time to think about what she really wants. They are basically a couple, with him always at her apartment. And he sleeps in OUR bed. And the kids see every bit of this. I don’t think they have sex while the kids are there, but please now! It’s only been since October that she said she wanted a divorce. Was I really that bad that she could just write me off and have another man take my place? You have NO IDEA how hurt this has made me. I am completely devastated!!!

Most medical doctors who treat ADD/ADHD do so as part of a larger practice. ADHD Specialists focuses primarily on only treating ADD and related conditions. This intense focus allows us to continually sharpen our clinical skills, attend specialized training, utilize the latest therapies, and build our process to meet the specific needs of our clients.

Often medical, testing and counseling services are all separately owned and located practices. It just does not make sense to have to travel from one location to another to treat the same condition. Besides the issue of time and travel, how cohesive and effective is care being delivered in multiple locations by multiple, unrelated providers who don’t have time to talk to each other?
