Parents of ADHD Teens and Young Adults
Re: Support Groups for Young Adults
Good day. I know I have posted here before, but I have still yet to find any support groups for young adults with ADHD. I have a son 22. He is not working and dropped out of college. He works one or two days ever other week, which is not sufficient or acceptable. He has looked for work but really doesn’t have a lot of confidence with interviewing. He’s more hands on with physical work then an office person. He is extremely isolated and has problems keeping any type of relationship. He does not take medication as he had a very bad experience on it so now he refuses to try any other meds. He is however in therapy once a week. I wish he could find some long term group therapy or social group that is structured for young adults with ADHD. My heart breaks that at 22, he is still struggling with relationships and having a hard time finding his place in this world. He is a very passionate young man. Friendly and helpful. I’m not sure what the problem is, but am hoping that it can be worked out in therapy. With that said, if anyone knows of any long term social programs, work training programs, or colleges/work programs that offer really good supportive classes for young adults with ADHD it would be appreciated. Thanks for you help! Best wishes to everyone for a happy holiday!
