What are behavioral conditions?
Behavioral conditions are mental health conditions characterized by excessive or troublesome behaviors. They can include problems such as substance use, aggression, and self-harm. Neurodevelopmental conditions such as ADHD are often placed in this category.

ADHD is a condition that affects a person’s ability to focus and control their impulses. People with ADHD may have trouble paying attention, may act impulsively, and may be hyperactive.
Treatment for ADHD typically involves medication, therapy, or a combination of both. Geode Health’s clinicians can prescribe medications like stimulants when appropriate, which can help improve focus and reduce impulsivity, while therapy can help individuals with ADHD learn coping skills and strategies to manage their symptoms.

Insomnia is a sleep disorder characterized by difficulty falling or staying asleep. People with insomnia often have problems such as restless nights, difficulty concentrating, and fatigue. Insomnia can occur as a result of other mental health conditions or exist independently.
At Geode Health, insomnia is typically treated using a combination of therapy and medications. Therapy can help individuals develop good sleep habits and reduce the negative thoughts and behaviors that may be contributing to their insomnia. Medications can also be used to help individuals fall asleep and stay asleep.
