Medical Management of ADD/ADHD
June 7, 2021

As a new Purdue student, you may have some questions about managing your ADD/ADHD. Options are available on campus and Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) may be the best source of therapy and medical management for you. However, if you have no other psychological concerns and you have a history of stable and medically managed ADD/ADHD, PUSH medical providers may be the answer for prescription management. Because PUSH has a specific process to ensure that you are receiving the care you need, please review the information regarding ADD/ADHD care provided on our Medical Services page, and make your Triage appointment (765-494-1700) soon after you arrive on campus in the fall.

You will also be added to the list of individuals for frequent, mandatory surveillance testing. Please allow 10 business days for the processing of your request.

Infusion Services
May 19, 2021

As part of our efforts to meet student needs, PUSH offers on-campus infusion treatment services for both chronic and acute medical conditions. Our team of skilled nurses will work directly with your infusion prescribing provider (in or out of state) to ensure that your treatment plan is not interrupted with the transition to college living. Contact us today (765-494-1700 or shc@purdue.edu) to find out how we can help you get started on the process. The PUSH nursing team will determine if your infusion is appropriate for PUSH to provide in our facility; provide the patient and/or family member with PUSH contacts to discuss billing and insurance; reach out to the ordering provider to obtain the infusion order and medication and arrange for the first infusion appointment. We know that infusions may disrupt your life. PUSH is able to minimize that disruption for most students and we look forward to providing that service for you if needed.
