Washington State ADHD Treatment Providers – Note: ADD freeSources does not endorse or recommend any provider or services listed. Nor should NOT being included on the list affect your choice of provider. Most were chosen simply because they were associated with ADD Resources or local CHADD groups at some time and I could find their contact information.

 

Support groups

Many groups will continue to meet.  Olympia has a new location, but the others will continue to meet at the same time and places. Get on your local group’s mailing list so you can keep in touch.
