BWC Phases to Success
The Being Well Center has created a Three Phase Program to equip individuals and families with the tools, resources, and knowledge to thrive with ADD/ADHD and A.T.E. Syndrome (Attentional Weaknesses, Temperamental Dysregulations, and Executive Dysfunctions).
EXPLORE YOUR CORE
Explore Your Core of Attentional Weaknesses, Temperamental Dysregulations, and Executive Dysfunctions with a brief visit including a questionnaire, FACES™ Attention Test, and wrap-up interview to determine the effectiveness of your current diagnosis and medication.
INTEGRATE THE WHOLE YOU
Integrate The Whole You of possible co-morbidities to complete your unique profile, which may includes probes for your social-emotional profile, academic profile, a neurodevelopmental exam, speech-language evaluation, and/or a physical exam.
FOCUS ON BEING WELL
Focus on Being Well with medication trials and management supported by on-going counseling.
The Being Well Center establishes successful medication regimens for more than 90% of our patients. Proper medication allows our patients to take advantage of counseling, tutoring, and other interventions to experience greater success in their lives! Our systematic protocols avoid risks of over-medicating or under-medicating.
The features of our medication protocol include:
- Only use medication when the patient is diagnosed with ADD/ADHD or A.T.E. Syndrome after a thorough evaluation.
- Structured trial testing on the medication is completed before using it on a daily basis.
- Medication titration results in an individually optimized medication regimen.
- The goal should be to provide patients with efficient attention throughout the waking day, every day of the year.
- Patients taking medication are required to participate in regular counseling sessions. Medication is never the sole treatment.
- Patients and their families participate in quarterly review visits to monitor the effectiveness of the medication.
01 Objective Test
The Being Well Center's FACES™ Attention Test is the first objective test for attention. The digital assessment tracks responses to visual problem-solving tasks to identify Attentional Weaknesses, Temperamental Dysregulations, and Executive Dysfunctions.
03 Repeat Testing
The Being Well Center performs repeated FACES™ Attention Tests at regular intervals to ensure individually optimized medication levels remain in place for each individual for the full day.
02 Medication Focus
Most people with ADD/ADHD experiencing problems need medication treatment. Medication enables people to take advantage of therapeutic intervention strategies. Think of medication like eyeglasses helping restore optimal sight!
04 Lifetime Support
Long-term use of medication appears to be very safe when it is prescribed after an accurate diagnosis, taken consistently, and monitored regularly. Untreated ADD/ADHD and A.T.E. Syndrome presents a much greater risk than medication over the long haul!

College Success: Confidence@College
Struggling students and frustrated parents come to The Being Well Center for our Confidence@College program. C@C addresses the whole person, not just the failing grade or missed expectation. C@C matches students with a BWC Guide, an expert in counseling, medication, education or social performance, who listens carefully to the student's whole story. BWC Guides work with students in-person and continue the relationship on campus virtually.
25% of obese individuals have ADD/ADHD. 40% of morbidly obese individuals have ADD/ADHD. Simple "one size fits all" diet plans and exercises don't work for most people.
The Being Well Center recommends screening all overweight/obese patients to determine if they are at risk for ADD/ADHD. Our TRANSformingU multi-disciplinary team discovers all the factors that interfere with establishing and maintaining a balanced, healthy lifestyle. We provide ongoing support through innovative tracking, reminding, and motivational tools.
