Treatment for Anxiety

It is estimated that over 10 million adults in the U.S. have ADHD. Almost half of those never seek out treatment by a health care professional. The difficulty with completing tasks and sustaining attention, feelings of restlessness, becoming easily distracted, excessive fidgeting, forgetfulness can all be possible symptoms of ADHD. At APS, clinical diagnostic evaluation and medication management for ADHD is offered and can improve the quality of life.
Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia / Schizoaffective Disorder
Medication treatment of Bipolar Disorder and Schizophrenia/Schizoaffective Disorder including long acting antipsychotic injections. These injections are offered and given at APS when appropriate, and can free someone from needing to take a daily oral medication. They can remain effective for up to three months after the shot. Examples include Abilify Maintaina, Invega Trinza, Invega Sustenna, Risperdal Consta, and Haldol Decanoate. Data shows that utilizing this approach can improve chances of someone staying well and out of the hospital secondary to their psychiatric condition.
Computer Based Cognition Testing
Neurocognitive testing involves taking a computer based test that lasts anywhere from 30-60 minutes and assess various dimensions of cognition including focus, memory, and attention. The results are scored immediately by the computer, and compares the scores against normal populations. Most insurance carriers will cover up to 4 of these tests per year. They can be helpful in aiding the clinician determining an accurate diagnosis as well as assessing how well someone is responding to ADHD treatment. The test includes validated rating scales that rule out anxiety, stress, sleep quality issues, and depression as possible causes.
