ADHD is a label used too often, and medication is not the answer. We offer a better way for ADHD by evaluating the brain-body-mind and finding the root causes. Together, we help put your child on a happy and healthy path, and help your family heal as well. Don't settle for a prescription band aid on a complex but treatable issue.
- 1 in 5 Michigan boys is diagnosed with ADHD
- Boys are 3x more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD than girls.
- In Michigan, 88% of children with ADHD are treated with strong prescription drugs like Adderall, Ritalin and Vyvanse.
- That puts us, in Michigan, far above the national average for diagnosis (11%) and for medication use (74%)
- The good news? You can reduce or eliminate the need for medications and help your child develop skills to defeat the disruptive and frustrating behaviors that resulted in the ADHD label.
ADHD diagnosis increased by 39% in just 8 years - now, nearly 13% of all Michigan children aged 4-17 have been diagnosed with ADHD.
This begs the question: Has the disease grown, or is the diagnosis just applied too liberally and without proper foundation?
The Miletic Center specializes in restoring balance and optimizing performance. We’ll work with you to navigate this crucial time for both your child and your family. We believe that medications can be helpful and even necessary for a time, but there is far more to ADHD than medication can address. Further, stimulants like Adderall, Ritalin, Vyvanse, Concerta and others impact the neural development of young brains and can have long term consequences. New breakthroughs in treatment are available, but require more time and expertise than your pediatrician is prepared to give you. These include alternative medications, sleep optimization, reduction in electronic overstimulation, management of diet and gut health, physical activity and stress reduction techniques.
At The Miletic Center, we know ADHD isn’t just an individual issue - it affects the entire family. Beyond our work with your child, we also help you to mitigate the disruptive impact and help the family more effectively support the needs of the ADHD child.
