Dr Bobby Miller with Forensic Science on 6th avenue in huntington treats ADHD adult patients and as far as ur bipolar; he may be able to refer you to someone. I've heard dr humphreys in barboursville is a good psych doc but I've never dealt with him personally. Good luck in ur search :)

If you are ADHD , you will need Adderal. It is not for BiPolar Disorder.
Psychiatrist are very cautious about handing out adhd meds. You have to be tested by a psychologist first to see if you are truly adhd. Once they determine you are, the psych doc writes the script for 30 days only and you must have the handwritten script to take to pharmacy. No call ins.

Many druggies use Adderal and that has given it a bad wrap. Not saying you are. It works if you are truly in need.

Try Prestera, Valley Health has a psychiatrist now, and any other psychiatric facility.

Hope this helps.

This is a very hard place to live if you have ADHD, im experience. I moved here from another state and it's been really tough, every medical provider, nurse, etc., looks at you like you're an addict. Also, there are not enough psychiatrists available, so it can take months to get an appointment.

I would try googling behavioral health clinics in your area. I would NOT recommend prestara. I had an appointment there for the same reason as you, I have add and went and waited for hours but my doctor never showed up. That place is a joke. Good luck to you on your search.
