Diagnosis such as ADD are becoming more common in teens today. What is ADD? ADD is Attention Deficit Disorder and is defined as a condition causing a persistent pattern of difficulties resulting in hyperactivity, inattention or impulsivity. A short attention span is often noticed. Many teens diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder are prescribed stimulants such as Adderall, Ritalin, Daytrana, Dexedrine, Focalin, Desoxyn, Dexedrine, Concerta, Methylin, Metadate, Adderall and Vyvanse. These medicines have side effects such as weight loss, headaches, abdominal pain, drowsiness, nervousness, decreased appetite, emotional changes, throat pain, anxiety, upper respiratory infections, insomnia and loss of appetite. A therapeutic boarding school is a much better solution for teens with Attention Deficit Disorder. Through structure, constant supervision, discipline, and counseling, a teen previously diagnosed with ADD can find victory and success at a therapeutic boarding school like Agapé Borading School, without experiencing harmful side effects of stimulants used to treat Attention Deficit Disorder. Teens experimenting with alcohol or illegal drugs along with prescribed stimulants for ADD, can be dangerous.
