Help is Closer Than You Realize!

No matter who you are, it’s harder to ask for help than many people give credit for. Whether it’s out of pride, worry, fear, or something else entirely, saying the words ‘help me’ is one of the hardest things for a human to do.

Here at Trifecta Health in New York we are under no illusions about this subject, and whenever someone reaches out to us for assistance, we deal with it in the most sympathetic and proactive method possible. Under the watchful eye of Dr. Edward Fruitman, M.D. we offer a huge range of services across a variety of different subject matters.

But, first things first, how do you utter those immortal words?

Nobody is going to accept help until they are ready, and it’s often said that you will know it when the time comes. How do you recognize this? Perhaps a true feeling of desperation, a willingness to accept anything that makes you feel better, not being able to see a light but desperately wanting to do so. These are all signs that the time is coming, and when it comes, you are certainly not alone.

The good news is that you do not have to travel too far to venture to one of Trifecta Health NYC offices, to gain that all-important assistance that will put you on the road to recovery. Whether you are struggling with adult attention deficit disorder (ADD/ ADHD), depression and anxiety, weight issues, substance and alcohol misuse, or something else entirely, we have four offices which are strategically located to be in close distance to everyone who needs our expert help.

We have an office in Downtown, on Broadway to be specific ( 115 Broadway, Suite 1300, New York, NY 10006. Tel: (212) 233-2830) , another in Midtown (1430 Broadway, Suite 900, New York, NY 10018. Tel: (212) 302-1848) , one in Central Park West (415 Central Park West, Suite 1AF, New York, NY 10025. Tel: (917) 745-3885), and earlier this year we opened our Park Avenue office ( 30 E 60th Street, Suite 2403, New York, NY 10022. Tel: (212) 233-2838), which means that no matter where you’re residing, and no matter where you’re working, help is only within a quick drive or stone’s throw away from you.

Trifecta Health is a private confidential clinics in New York that offers adult ADHD, Depression,  Alcohol and Substance Abuse Treatments and Weight Management services.

Guided by renowned Top NYC Psychiatrist, Dr. Edward Fruitman M.D., Trifecta Health combines expert psychopharmacology and psychotherapy to create a tailored treatment plan specific to each individual’s needs.

You can easily factor consultations and treatment into your day if you work, and it goes without saying that we are ultra-confidential, meaning that your appointment is not going to be displayed for all to see when entering and leaving your consultation.

Picking up the telephone and making that first call is going to be the hardest part of the deal, but once that mountain is overcome, the view from the top will be fantastic in time. Of course, we are all too aware of the struggle that many people encounter with making that first move, and that is why our staff are trained in their profession to the highest standard.

Nothing is harder than admitting a perceived failing, but then asking for help is certainly not a failing, it is a huge strength that you should be congratulated for, and something you should give yourself a huge pat on the back for. Only once you have made this step can you look forward to reaping the rewards of your actions, and here at Trifecta Health, we offer some of the greatest rewards around.

Let us help you climb your own personal mountain, and give us a call today at (800) 385-3905.


ADHD Is Not Just Childhood Disorder

ADHD is not just a childhood disorder; frequently this disorder goes without diagnoses until adulthood and can have significant impact throughout one’s life, especially with respect to employment.

On average, an adult with ADHD earns over $4000 less a year than their non ADHD peers. They can also struggle with co-worker relationships, holding a job (being late, absenteeism, and frequent mistakes often contribute to individuals with ADHD losing their jobs), or job hopping. However, often, after diagnosis and treatment, workers with ADHD excel in the workplace.

Unlike children with ADHD, adults are less likely to have the “hyperactivity” part. They are more likely to be fidgety, feel on edge, or have trouble relaxing. Adults often feel relieved after receiving a diagnosis- they have an issue- that can be managed, they are not simply lazy, sloppy, scatterbrained or any number of labels that they may have applied to themselves or been called by others.

Often, after a child is diagnosed with ADHD, a parent will recognize symptoms in themselves which triggers an evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment. ADHD is not something that develops in adulthood, symptoms have always been there, sometimes just well-hidden or well coped with. Another reason people seek evaluation and treatment for ADHD as an adult is workplace issues. Adults with ADHD sometimes feel they are not working up to their potential and feel very frustrated with it. Frequently, adults are thrilled with the success of treatment and amazed and their improved function.

Many of our patients are from the financial sector which requires a great deal of accuracy, meaning untreated ADHD can be a large obstacle however, we are experienced experts in initiating effective therapies to see positive results quickly. Since this can be a fast paced work environment symptoms can be masked. However, NYC psychiatrist Dr. Edward Fruitman is experienced at detailed evaluations to ensure accurate diagnosis.
