Hi Virginian,
I'm in Milford, CT and I'm looking for a support group too. Have you tried the Danbury CHADD group? It'd be a long drive for me, but since I haven't found anything closer I might go anyway. But I wonder if the CHADD meetings are for parents of ADD kids or if they're actually geared towards ADD adults. Do you know anything about their mettings?

There is a site called meetup that facilitates meetings of people with common interests. The add meetup site is http://adultadd.meetup.com/
Unfortunately, there aren't enough ADDers signed up in CT to have a "meetup" ...but the more people who sign up, the better. :rolleyes:

I'm using an ADD coach based out of Maryland --it's all by phone, so location doesn't matter. There are a few coaches listed in CT though --let me know if you want that info ...I'm sure I've got those links bookmarked somewhere on my computer, it's just a matter of digging them up. :p

Well I just checked the Danbury CHADD webpage ...it says they are temporarily closed, pending a replacement chapter coordinator. *sigh*
