ADHD Medications

Mental health symptoms and ADHD medications don’t have to be permanent fixtures in your life. There are natural options available to ease your pain, heal at the cellular level and rebuild what drugs and other toxic substances have depleted from your well-being.
Psychiatric drugs and pain medications are a quick fix, but their side effects come with detrimental repercussions. You have options.

Leading-Edge, Scientific Pathways to Peace of Mind

After a decade and a half of applying medication alternatives to a residential population, made up of people just like you, we have amassed, what is likely, the most comprehensive and diverse application of holistic mental health care in the world. And the results are what we’ve built our name on. The Alternatives to Medication. They exist. Here. Healthy, viable and noninvasive. The way life should be lived.

You don’t have to be trapped in the cycle of symptoms and side effects.

Many people tell us they have tried everything and that we are their last resort. This is where traditional thinking has it all wrong. We know holistic modalities should be the first line of defense against imbalance. Medications, if needed, should come in last.

The success of our work depends on finding the real reasons why you or someone you care about is symptomatic. We then treat those factors. Identify your medical dependency. Discover the alternative. Find your future.

Is ADHD Medication a Stimulant?

There are several medications used to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), and the majority of them are considered stimulants. Many ADHD medications contain the active ingredients: dextroamphetamine, amphetamine, methylphenidate, and even methamphetamine. These chemicals are all considered stimulants, and stimulants are generally considered as “safe” by physicians in low dosages. However, the side effects can be similar in both low and high dosages.
