ADD Email Groups

ADD Adults Group (Large email support group).

ADDults: ADDadults is for adult issues. Relationships, work related issues, medications, sexual issues etc. While we realize that many ADDadults have children, we ask that the parenting issues be addressed to ADDtalk. 

children-with-adhd (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder in children is frustrating and exhausting to the child and the family. Schools find these kids generally a burden, and often lack the understanding, skills and training to effectively deal with and help kids with ADHD succeed. We need to support one another through discussion of what works, what doesn't, medications, and all those issues that surface when loving a child who has the disease of ADHD. . . and it is a disease. Join in and support one another, everyone wins, but mostly, our children win because we have each other to lean on in those often trying times).

lwapartners (This group is for spouses, partners, and significant others of people with ADD (attention deficit disorder, AD/HD, ADHD). The purpose of the group is to lend support to others who have ADD partners and to vent your frustration),

ADDictions: One of the many things that ADDadults feel that is an issue directly related to the ADHD is addictions. Whether it be food, sex, substance abuse or spending addictions, ADDicts is a list for addults only. The list has no archives and the member list is confidential. 

adhd-alternatives Alternative treatment for the discussion of alternative treatments with others who wish to do the same. There is no advertising of products on this list so you can feel free to share your experiences with alternatives and learn from the experiences of others without being solicited.
