Oppositional Defiant Disorder

If your child's uncooperative, defiant behavior is causing problems in your family, consult the experts of Jefferson's Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior. Our staff focuses special attention on the consultation and treatment of the most common psychiatric problems such as oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) and is also experienced in individual, couple, marital and family therapy. We serve child, adolescent and adult outpatient populations on a sliding-fee basis.

The Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Outpatient Services at Jefferson offer children, adolescents, their families and caretakers comprehensive diagnostic evaluation, psychotherapy, psychopharmacology, parent counseling and family therapy. A variety of clinical problems are treated including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), mood disorders, anxiety disorders (generalized anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder), pervasive developmental disorders and disruptive behavior disorders.
