Psychological testing for rehab programs
The Test of Variables of Attention (TOVA) for ADHD is one kind of psychological testing we offer here at Beginnings Treatment Centers. TOVA is a computerized attention test that helps screen for, diagnose and even treat ADHD and other attention disorders. We believe an accurate diagnosis and personalized treatment plan are essential aspects in providing appropriate mental health treatment, especially for addictive disorders.
Many times, clients have co-occurring disorders, such as attention deficit disorder with addiction or attention deficit disorder with alcoholism. Adults, in addition to children and adolescents, can suffer from attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Our treatment plans may combine a variety of therapies and at times include prescription drugs. TOVA is often used by licensed clinicians, nurse clinicians, licensed clinical social workers, psychologists, physicians, pediatricians and other health professionals so they can accurately diagnose and treat various attention disorders.
Attention disorders are not uncommon and can be treated effectively. However, it is essential to undergo the proper tests to ensure the diagnosis is accurate as many disorders can have symptoms that are similar. Before coming up with an individualized treatment plan, we take care to ensure we have a thorough understanding of your needs and diagnoses.
The screening version of the TOVA test is used primarily in non-clinical settings, such as in schools, rehab programs and in human resource departments. We believe that offering a variety of psychological testing enables us to better confirm diagnoses, and help us to better treat our clients and their families.
