Welcome! You are invited to join this open group of parents who gather monthly to share experiences and information about the joys and challenges of ADHD children. We meet the second Thursday of each month from 7 - 8:30 pm at the Warrenton Police Department Training Room. This CHADD support group is free and open to the public. The facilitators are Linda and Neil Swanson. For more information call or email NOVA CHADD at (703)[masked] or [masked].
This Adults with ADHD support group will meet on Sundays via Zoom. At this time it seems we are all going through some changes in our lives. Change can be very unsettling, especially for thos of us with ADHD. So for now this group will focus on where we are at this time, and possibilities for where we'd like to go in the future. We can support each other as our common ADHD struggles show up. Any questions? Please send a message and we will get right back to you!
UPDATE: This support group is meeting online through Zoom. Hi Everyone! This week, in addition to checking in about any existing or ongoing challenges, we will share about any challenges specific to comorbid disorders. Have you experienced depression, anxiety, substance abuse, obsessive compulsive disorder, oppositional disorder or any other psychological issue? Do you think that in some ways relates to your ADHD? In the discussion portion we will share our experience and coping strategies. ALSO, PREPARE FOR THE BODY DOUBLE EXERCISE! 🎉 This is where we all choose a task that we have been putting off to work on for 10-15 minutes, then check in about it in the discussion portion. Decide what you’re going to do before the meeting and let us know in your check in. It works, it really does! This support group will meet the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month. We will have a mindfulness exercise and a different ADD/ADHD related topic each time to lead the discussion. Looking forward to seeing you there. *Please note that at this time this is for adults with ADD or ADHD only. If you are a parent or family member, there are groups available just for you and those groups have been thriving in the DMV area for some time. I’m hoping we can give them a run for their money!
