Referral by GP or directional practitioner.
Receipt of referral letter by ADHDcentraal
Contact by telephone with ADHDcentraal
Schedule appointment for day of diagnosis
Explanation of steps
We would like to receive a letter of referral from your general practitioner or directional practitioner.
The letter of referral can be safely sent via, for example, Zorgdomein. It is important that the referrer refers to us, ‘ADHDcentraal’, explicitly. There should also be a specific reference to the specialist mental healthcare (GGZ).
You will be in contact by phone with someone from our Information and Planning Team. We will give you information about our method and costs, and then discuss the contents of your letter of referral and possibly ask additional questions. Of course you can also ask us questions.
You can reach us at 088 313 1200
We will then schedule an appointment with you. Due to the multitude of applications, there is a waiting time, which can differ per location and is partially dependent on the agreements made with health insurers.

What are the costs of treatment?
If we have a contract with your health insurer or if you have a 100% reimbursement policy, you do not pay any additional costs, except for your own outstanding deductible. If we do not have a contract with your health insurer, you will pay a “personal contribution” of €250 after the diagnosis day and treatment. You will also have to pay your health insurer your outstanding deductible.
Personal contribution for medication
Medication has an important place in the treatment of ADHD. This medication will be prescribed by us and supplied by your pharmacist. Depending on the medication prescribed, a personal contribution might be necessary under the Health Insurance Act. This is capped at €250 by law. The personal contribution will be charged to you by your own insurer. This will not involve ADHDcentraal.
You may have supplemental insurance for these costs. Inquire about this with your insurer. Some manufacturers have a refund scheme for the personal contribution. See the following links for more information:

What does the treatment entail?
In consultation with you, the patient, a treatment plan is formed which is centralized around your needs. The form of treatment is often one of the following care paths:
- Medication in combination with psychoeducation and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), or
- Medication in combination with psychoeducation.
During and after your treatment, you can access our E-health environment
What does the day of diagnosis entail?
Prior to your visit:
- We ask you and someone you know well to fill in the CAARS (Connors ADHD Adult Rating Scale).
- In addition, we ask you to prepare for the conversation with the psychologist by reflecting on ages 6-12, your primary school days and to review your school reports.
On the day of diagnosis itself:
- Extensive medical intake
- Diagnostic Interview for Adults with ADHD (DIVA)
- QbTest (Objective, computer-based neuropsychological assessment)
- Psychiatric examination
- Joint discussion of the results
If you wish, you can start treatment immediately. There is no waiting time between the diagnosis and treatment.
We refer you back to your GP with well-grounded advice.
