Adults with ADHD might have difficulty following directions, remembering information, concentrating, or organizing tasks. Without management, adults with ADHD can cause associated behavioral, emotional, social, vocational, and academic problems.

What we once thought of as mere misbehavior in children is, in many cases, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. To be sure, there are differences between misbehavior and ADHD, but many parents and teachers don’t recognize the symptoms of ADHD in their children, so they can’t help them.
Because of that, we have many adults with ADHD who don’t realize it, and worse, might suffer from co-occurring disorders, too.
ADHD symptoms include:
- Frequent fidgeting and inability to sit still for more than a couple of minutes
- Being overly talkative
- Hyperactive behavior
- Poor patience and lack of impulse control
- Poor ability to concentrate
- Difficulty following instructions
- Disorganized, can’t remember where they placed things
- Frequent daydreaming
There are many other symptoms, too. If left untreated for too long, ADHD symptoms may lead to more serious problems as patients attempt to mitigate their anxiety, depression, and other symptoms themselves.
You can find ADHD treatment and support in Florida, though, even if you’re an adult and believe you suffer from this disorder. We here at Celadon Recovery don’t specifically treat ADHD, but we can refer you to places and programs that do.
We do treat co-occurring disorders, including depression and anxiety disorders, too. Our dual diagnosis team can help identify whether you suffer from multiple disorders or just one and develop a treatment plan specifically for you.
