Support and Treatment Options

  • I have a formal ADHD Diagnosis and I need treatment.  Where do I go?CAPS 
    If you want CAPS to continue to prescribe you medication, there are a few things to be aware of:

    1. CAPS provides short-term treatment for ADHD. We believe that the most effective treatment occurs when students engage in therapy in addition to medication. If you are interested in this model of treatment, please go online, call or walk in to CAPS for an initial assessment.    

    2. Please contact your prior treatment provider(s) for a summary letter regarding your diagnosis and treatment. It will be valuable to have this letter with you or in our record at the time of your appointment with us. In addition, please bring or send us a copy of any psychological testing that has been done.  Copies of your school records/report cards are also useful.

    If you want more choice regarding treatment options (e.g. medication alone; ongoing support for your time at Penn), CAPS can provide you with referrals.
