Welcome to the Sachs Center, New York City’s premier treatment center for ADD, ADHD, anxiety, depression and social skill deficits. Spills happen. But for some reason, spills, mistakes, blunders, snafus, mess-ups, do-overs and screw-ups happen more to children and adults with ADD. Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be a very debilitating disorder if not carefully managed and supported.
If not diagnosed and treated, a child or teen can grow into an adult who has accumulated years of failure, missed opportunities, damaged self-esteem and possible drug and alcohol abuse. Careers, work and home life can suffer greatly. Fortunately, there are answers. We provide a comprehensive approach to managing and overcoming ADD and ADHD in children and adults. It takes a team approach to be successful, coordinating with family, school, psychiatrists and ADD coaches.
ADHD stands for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. It is a neurobehavioral disorder that is characterized by a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity/impulsivity that interferes with functioning or development. People with ADHD may have difficulty paying attention, may be hyperactive or restless, and may act impulsively. These symptoms of ADHD occur in 2 or more settings, such as at work, at school, or in social settings. ADHD starts in childhood, but can continue in adolescence and adulthood.
An estimated 11% (6.4 million) of US school-aged children have been diagnosed with ADHD in their lifetime.
Once, ADD is identified and managed, the true benefits of ADD emerge. Creativity, out of the box thinking, drive, passion, invention, and leadership are just some of the gifts of ADD.
