When ADD Symptoms Spiral Out of Control: One Young Man’s Experience

The statistics are impressive. But every ADHD case is unique; it’s the individual stories that are really inspiring. Just ask Adam. Adam was diagnosed with ADHD and learning disabilities as a teen, and treatment with Ritalin made no significant improvements. Then a tragedy happened that made his symptoms much worse.

Proven Results: The Amen Method of integrative psychiatric care offers hope. Using innovative and personal care, our outcomes consistently demonstrate improvement for patients – including many who have tried and failed prior treatment.*

When Adam was 18, he was in a motorcycle accident. He survived, but things were not the same afterward. His ADD symptoms were much worse.

When he got married, his wife couldn’t ignore how ADD was limiting Adam’s every day life. It was clear he was struggling with focus and attention, impulse control and anger. The couple went through a list of psychiatrists—and medications. But sometimes they made things worse! It was an exhausting time, but Adam’s wife kept looking for answers. Finally, she found Amen Clinics.

In a recent six-month Outcome Study of 500 Amen Clinics' patients of varying ages and locations, 75 percent showed significant improvement in their condition, and 85 percent reported improved quality of life after implementing their personalized protocols.*

“I did the Full Evaluation with a brain SPECT scan and entire personal history,” Adam said. His Amen Clinic psychiatrist showed him a SPECT scan of a healthy brain and compared it to the SPECT scan of Adam’s brain. It was a shock, but Adam was grateful for the comprehensive evaluation of his condition. There was no need for “trial and error meds” anymore. The Amen Clinics Method offered targeted treatment for Adam’s unique brain and they could understand exactly what was needed in terms of medication and nutrition.

“I did a re-scan at one year. We could see how my brain improved!” Adam said. He has continued to have re-scans to follow the progress. Today, Adam regularly refers others to Amen Clinics. He regards his experience as nothing short of life-changing. “I know if my wife hadn’t found Amen Clinics, we would not be married today,” he said. “Now she’s able to rely on me. I’m able to sustain a fairly normal life. Thank God my wife found Amen Clinics.”

There are ADHD treatment approaches that are yielding transformative results. Make the call. It’s time to open the door to a bright and hopeful future.

Brain SPECT Scan Research and Treatment Innovation Yield Real Improvement for ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD or ADD), is one of the most common psychiatric challenges among adults.  If it’s so common, why do mainstream treatments fall short in many cases? 

At Amen Clinics, we’re answering that question.  Our leading-edge brain research has found there are actually 6 types of ADHD and, for 4 of them, typical stimulant medications make symptoms worse.  We have pioneered innovative ADHD treatments that are highly successful.  In fact, Amen Clinics’ outcome scores are among the most positive for psychiatric clinics in the U.S.

The Amen Clinics Full Evaluation includes:

  1. Thorough Clinical Assessment with Neuropsychological Testing
    During the first appointment, an Amen Clinics historian gathers your biological, psychological, social, and spiritual or life-purpose history. You will complete:
    • A sophisticated neuropsychological test measuring how your brain is currently functioning
    • Detailed questionnaires that are discussed with a specially trained historian
  2. Two brain SPECT imaging studies are performed on separate days: at rest and while performing a concentration task. SPECT images show patterns of brain activity and blood flow, allowing Amen Clinic physicians to identify areas of the brain that work well, areas that work too hard, and areas that do not work hard enough.
  3. A thorough evaluation with an Amen Clinic physician who puts the scans and clinical information together to make a diagnosis and treatment plan that is specific to you – to heal and optimize your brain function, which leads to the improvement of behavioral, mood and learning.
  4. One follow-up appointment with your physician to review your treatment progress.
