Q: How can I find the right doctor for a clinical diagnosis and treatment? I would like to find a practitioner who is also allowed to prescribe medication, should I require it.
If you are specifically interested in medications, you would have to be diagnosed by an M.D. A psychiatrist, or even your primary care physician might be able to help.
If you’d rather get diagnosed first and worry about meds later, you can also search for qualified therapists and other clinicians. A little broader search may or may not be helpful.
There’s a good chance you might have to wait for a formal diagnosis. The best clinicians are VERY busy. So, the ADDA peer support groups, a benefit of ADDA membership, are a great resource while you wait.
Here are a few resources to help you find medical professionals.
