Are there alternative therapy options to combat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)? This is a question many parents have when managing ADHD in young adults. Medication helps some kids with ADHD, but research shows that meds work best when paired with alternative treatments like behavior therapy. It’s also an unfortunate truth that many kids are unnecessarily medicated. Therapeutic intervention may be necessary to get to the true root of the problem if there are behavioral issues.
