      Hello, my 16 yr old has been diagnosed with ADHD attentive and been treated with medication for a while. I have been reading that behavior therapy in addition to medication is more effective. Where can we receive such treatment? Is this through a psychiatrist, counselor, psychologist, etc? Any suggestions in the north Atlanta (Woodstock, Marietta) area?

      I would ask your pediatrician or other parents for recommendations. I’ve also found the Find a Therapist tool on Psychology Today to be really helpful because you can search by speciality and location.

      There are some therapists on ADDitude’s Directory too:
