ADHD/ADD Specialist in Ontario

Hi guys,

I don't know if anyone uses this forum really, but i'm desperate at this point.

Long story short, I was diagnosed with ADHD as a kid and never really took my meds because everyone kept making fun of me so I didn't tell the school or anyone I know. Fast forward to today years old, I'm noticing the effects of ADHD more and more and now it's starting to affect the quality of my life because I have to work and do school at the same time and not one at a time.

I tried going to my family doctor and he doesn't believe in pills and got me on vitamins instead.
I tried phoning ADHD clinics and they all need a referral, and some aren't even taking new clients in.
I'm stuck buying adhd medication (same one I was prescribed when I was a kid) illegally now and really want to stop because I want to be safe about it.

So does anyone know any doctor that would help me in this situation? If i have to re-do the assessment I will happily do so and if they want to prescribe me some other medication thats fine too - I just need proper help and I feel like I can't find it.


Sorry for the rant, but in need of help.

Try the Springboard Clinic in Toronto. They take self referrals. It is about $900 to do the testing with them. They give you an OHIP covered MD. HTH.
