ADHD (or ADD) is a common disorder that often persists into adulthood for one third to one half of people diagnosed with it. There are three types of ADHD: predominately hyperactive-impulse, predominantly inattentive, and combined type. The type of ADHD is based on the number of symptoms present in each category.

Alcohol use disorder occurs when your drinking causes problems in your life, yet you keep drinking. You may feel guilty about your use or feel annoyed when others criticize your drinking.  Depending on your circumstances and severity of problems, you may want to try to decrease your drinking to healthy levels or abstain from alcohol completely.

Anxiety is a general term for several disorders that cause nervousness, fear, apprehension, and worrying.  Anxiety is considered a problem when symptoms interfere with a person’s ability to sleep or otherwise function. Generally speaking, anxiety occurs when a reaction is out of proportion with what might be normally expected in a situation.

Clinical depression is a worsening of mood that causes impairment in academic, occupational, or social functioning.  It can be severe and disabling, resulting in suicidal behaviors and hospitalization, or it can be mild and chronic (two years), resulting in mild impairments and unhappiness.  Medications, psychotherapy, exercise, meditation, and nutrition are all important treatments for depression.
