The clinicians at the Best Practice ADHD Center believe in an integrative approach to being successful in overcoming ADD/ADHD symptoms. A core component of successful ADHD and ADD management is the integration of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) into patients treatment plans. While other modalities may help in some aspects of treatment, CBT has been found to be the most effective in treating and improving ADD/ADHD symptoms. CBT helps one who is suffering by bringing awareness in identifying the relationship between what one is thinking (thoughts),feeling (emotions), and what we do (our behaviors). It is beneficial through helping one understanding the negative thoughts and beliefs that influence our behavior and lives. Once we can learn to recognize and stop dysfunctional and unhelpful patterns of thoughts and behaviors, we can then structure our mentality for success. CBT is time-limited and solution focused which provides those with immediate strategies to begin using in their day-to-day lives. CBT therapy will take the focus off of repeated mistakes and failures, and help one understand, simplify, and structure their behaviors and thoughts in a way that will make one continually more successful. A CBT therapist acts as your own personal guide to better understanding who you are, why you do what you do, and how to make changes that you feel will empower and better your life.
