Readers frequently write to me, asking if I know of ADHD care providers in their city. As hard as I try to keep tabs on known clinicians worldwide, it’s a big world! Now I can refer folks to a convenient resource developed by the National Resource Center on ADHD.
The good news is that this task has gotten much easier, thanks to the The National Resource Center on ADHD (a collaboration of the non-profit CHADD and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control). It has compiled a state-by-state list of hospital and university clinics treating ADHD, with specific information on whether the focus is on pediatrics, adolescents, and/or adults.
The NRC website is a gold mine of solid information on ADHD (including Spanish translations). And you can also call their toll-free telephone number with questions on ADHD:

Here’s information on the list of hospital and university-based resources for ADHD:
There are many settings in which individuals receive services for ADHD. These include private practices of individual professionals, group practices of several professionals, as well as clinics offering both ADHD and other types of medical/behavioral health services. The links on this page are limited solely to those clinics which have expertise in diagnosing and treating ADHD AND which are part of a hospital or university. This list is not exhaustive.
- It does not include individual/group practices, and it specifically excludes ADHD clinics (for profit or non-profit) that are not part of a larger hospital or university.
- See the CHADD Professional Directory, composed of Professional Members of CHADD, for more ADHD resources. [Gina’s note: This professional directory is a great resource of people who have paid for a listing in this directory. A directory listing does not reflect any type of vetting or approval process by CHADD.]
Disclaimer: The NRC does not endorse or represent ADHD diagnostic or treatment facilities including the hospital and university ADHD centers listed in this section. This list was compiled by NRC staff and is by no means a complete or all-inclusive list.
If you still can’t find a nearby resource, seek out the nearest teaching hospital and medical school, where information about ADHD is more likely to be current. Of course, search the Internet for care providers in your region. Sometimes, a website provides a wealth of details that would incline you toward, or away from, a clinician.
