Attention Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder in Troubled Teens


ADD/ADHD in Troubled Teens



Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, both found surprisingly often in troubled teens, may be spurious products of a generation raised on television, but recent cognitive research by world renowned higher education systems (take Harvard, for example) have made profound discoveries about this unusually common synaptic condition.


Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is a neurobehavioral disorder that manifests itself in symptoms such as inattentiveness, impulsivity, distractibility, selective hearing, and an uncontrollable urge to fidget.  Some may consider it a developmental hinderance that makes school extremely difficult, while others view is as a surmountable challenge- a means of taking on the world with a different mindset.  The subject of ADD/ADHD is controversial at best; experts disagree on whether it is an intolerable (by today's high-standard world) collection of normally occurring behaviors, or a problem that can be treated best pharmacologically.  The main concern is that teenagers diagnosed with ADD/ADHD may have such a profound inability to concentrate in school that they could eventually become disruptive and defiant, having trouble getting along with parents, peers or teachers.


There is hope for troubled teens suffering from ADD/ADHD.  Restoration is found in programs that integrate a variety of affective therapies by creating personalized treatment for each individual in need.  Licensed clinicians, caring staff members and qualified counselors provide 24/7 supervision and support to troubled teens admitted to a residential treatment center.  C.A.R.E. Schools specialize in therapeutic programs for struggling adolescents and offer a variety of summer programs, boot camps, boarding schools, military schools, wilderness/adventure therapy, group homes and residential treatments centers to help teens overcome any issue they are facing. 


ADD/ADHD does not have to be a roadblock in the journey of life.  Coping mechanisms, acquired skills and hidden talents can be taught and revealed with the help of professionals to better understand the idiosyncrasies that accompany a troubled teen with an attention deficit issue.  Alternative schools provide an approach unique to the needs of adolescents with ADD/ADHD, and both medical and behavioral treatments have proven themselves to be truly affective, welcoming the diagnosis not as a device to control rebellious teenagers, but to help them develop the necessary attributes that will propel them into a prosperous adult life.
