Psychotherapy rates for children using ADHD drugs vary by location

September 26, 2014

Recent data show receipt of psychotherapy among children who use attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder medication varied geographically, regardless of psychologist supply in some cases.

Researchers assessed receipt of at least one outpatient therapy visit in 2010 among 301,530 children receiving ADHD medication from 1,516 US counties. Therapy visits were individual, group or family visits. The mean age of the children was 11.6 years. Researchers evaluated receipt of therapy by county and how it varied across counties based on the supply of licensed psychologists by quintile.
