ADHD: A four-letter acronym that stands for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Across our society and throughout modern history, it has also come to represent harmful stereotypes, debilitating assumptions, and unconscious bias.
Left unchecked or untreated, ADHD can hamper brain development and impede everything from a person’s social skills to their productivity in a professional environment. While the condition itself is considered very common, with more than 3 million cases now diagnosed annually in the U.S. alone, the treatment opportunities for ADHD are anything but common. Most people suffer in silence.
The problem comes down to a simple math equation. In total, more than 17 million people
in the U.S. have received a diagnosis of ADHD, but there are fewer than 30,000 psychiatrists
to treat them. That means there are roughly 566 patients for every one psychiatrist. Clearly unsustainable.
Beyond addressing the emotional and mental wellness of patients, we also see an opportunity to address the financial impact of $150-200 million in lost productivity every year due to ADHD. No one should lose their job over ADHD, and no one should lose their opportunity to find a meaningful path forward in their professional life.
The time is now to change the course of this treatable condition. The solution? Done.
Done. believes that telehealth technology, by connecting anyone to the right psychiatric care at the right time - even through their mobile device, is a vital tool to combat current challenges in the ADHD environment. This “always-on” strategy allows for seamless accessibility, convenient interactions like video calls, and 24/7 support. Our patients are the lifeblood of Done. and we know that the overwhelming nature of ADHD can strike at any moment, so we are always available.
Our approach is simple. After using the Done. platform to take a medically approved assessment test to determine if and where a patient falls on the ADHD spectrum, they are connected directly with a medical practitioner to schedule an appointment and privately discuss their wellness. Once the course of treatment is determined with a clinician, a patient has the option to join Done. as a valued member of our services and access a broad network of clinicians.
At Done., we want to eliminate the stigma and confusion or isolation around ADHD and empower anyone to receive the help they need to live up to their fullest potential. We provide awareness and education for people to learn more about ADHD, confidential and accurate medical diagnosis through telehealth, and actionable ways to receive timely and convenient treatment. More than 40% of patients who use Done. reported their symptoms improved during their initial months with Done.
Our team at Done. includes some of the most esteemed board-certified experts in the industry. Their wisdom and decades of collective experience treating ADHD has allowed us to build a robust online platform that infuses efficiency with effectiveness. We put the patient’s needs first and provide quality, medically sound care during their entire journey with us.
In this era of connectedness, Done. is simultaneously connecting people with ADHD to qualified clinicians, reducing the stigma surrounding ADHD, and tackling feelings of isolation and disconnection that a diagnosis can carry. Through our holistic approach to ADHD, we are committed to ensuring no one is left behind, ending the negative implications of ADHD, and allowing patients to reach their full potential.
We also know there are rarely easy solutions when it comes to long-term care with ADHD; one patient’s experience is unique from another. The journey ahead can be uncertain. But we remain undaunted. We will not waver from our promise to provide a light in the darkness for the millions of people in need.
As a telehealth platform, we adhere to the same ethical standards shared by the medical community writ large. And we will always uphold the highest level of integrity to keep the patient front and center. Ultimately, we make ADHD care accessible, reliable, and affordable. This is what we do.
And we are Done.
