The ADDvisor for adults with ADHD has been carefully developed by Drs. Benninger and Graham and implemented using the most reputable, research based, information available. Our program was honored by CHADD at the national convention six years in a row as an "Innovative Program."
Group members not only find the information to be helpful but also, to some degree, the group support.
As Ed Hallowell has said: "Educate yourself. Perhaps the single most powerful treatment for ADD is understanding ADD in the first place."
