ADD, or ADHD, is a national health crisis that continues to grow - yet it remains one of the most misunderstood and incorrectly treated illnesses today. Kids and adults are put on powerful stimulant medications in short office visits without any biological information, and the stories of these medications hurting children and adults are common and persistent. In this national public television program, psychiatrist Daniel Amen and his wife, nurse Tana Amen, take a completely new look at ADD and explain 7 unique types based on the extensive brain imaging work on tens of thousands of ADD patients. Treating all people with ADD the same invites failure and frustration and can be a disaster, as the traditional treatments that make two of the types better can make the other 5 types worse.
