A Note About Our Feature

Presidio does not advocate nor oppose the use of cortical stimulants such as Ritalin. All children receiving medication in Presidio's treatment program are regularly assessed and attentively treated by licensed contract psychiatrists. We fully support treatment team decisions as part of each child's individualized treatment programming.

The purpose of this Feature Series is simply to challenge you to consider the issues surrounding medication. Are we drugging millions of children to make them more compliant and easier to manage at home and in school? It is important that we ask ourselves if we have an epidemic of misdiagnosed or under diagnosed cases of ADHD.

If you have any questions, concerns or comments about this or any Feature Series presented in PresidioNews, please contact me.
