90-Day Supply of Medicine
Concerns about medication and treatment can create added stress for families affected by ADHD. While we’re often advised to obtain a three-month supply of prescribed medications, that is not possible for Schedule II controlled substances, which include certain medications for ADHD. According to the Pharmacist’s Manual, a prescriber may issue multiple prescriptions authorizing a patient to receive up to a 90-day supply of a Schedule II controlled substance; however, the following conditions apply: (1) every prescription must be written separately for each 30-day supply; (2) the prescriber must indicate the earliest date the pharmacy can fill each prescription.

Local Volunteer Opportunities


We are proud to be one of the longest-standing affiliates in New York. Our local Nassau County chapter was founded in 1989 to support and educate the families in our community who were experiencing frustration and a sense of isolation when dealing with issues concerning AD/HD. At that time, there were few places one could go for support or information. Many clinicians and educators knew little about AD/HD, and our children were often incorrectly labeled as  "behavior problems," "unmotivated," or "not intelligent enough." 

Much has changed in these last 21 years, as CHADD has grown and advocated on your behalf. We are a grass-roots volunteer organization charged with effecting change in our community through collaborative leadership, advocacy, research, education and support. Today, AD/HD is recognized as a legitimate neurobiological syndrome.  Children with AD/HD are eligible for special education services or classroom modifications when needed, and adults with AD/HD may be eligible for accommodations in the workplace under the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Internet has opened up unparalleled opportunities to accumulate information on AD/HD and related conditions. However, nothing compares to the face-to-face, member-to-member experience that our support groups can offer.  

Our Executive and Clinical Boards are composed of a small group of dedicated volunteers from around Nassau County who play an integral part in the chapter's success by providing support, education, and encouragement to parents, educators and professionals. We all have busy lives affected in some way by AD/HD. However, we have managed to maintain the passion and commitment of our founders. When we joined CHADD we became part of something bigger than ourselves. We offer you all this, and in return we ask you to join with us and become involved to continue this effort. We are always in need of volunteers and we need your participation. Effecting change in our community begins and ends with collaborative leadership. Without your help, change for AD/HD children, parents and adults in our community will not happen. With your involvement, we can continue to change the way AD/HD children and adults are treated in our schools, workplaces and throughout our state. 

There are many volunteer opportunities available. Just contact us and express your interest. You can play an important part in helping us continue to accomplish our mission. Become a part of our social movement – Join with us today!

CHADD Local Groups Need Your Support


CHADD has local groups throughout the United States. Each group offers programming or information specific to their geographic area. Local CHADD groups offer assistance for parents, children, young adults, adults and other stakeholders (psychologists, teachers, doctors, etc.). CHADD groups also provide advocacy, support, networking and information to those affected by ADHD in their communities.


Ways you can support these efforts are as follows:


  • Donate to this effort

  • Contact your local CHADD group to advocate for support groups

  •  Contact your school district to host and support newly forming or current groups

  • Contact your local community foundation or other foundations in your area to support this effort


For questions on these, or any options to support CHADD please visit our web site at or contact the CHADD National office at (301) 306-7070.
