Richard Silver, MD

    Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist


Rick Silver, MD is the founder and director of THRIVE.  His idea to create an integrative program for healing grew out of his personal and professional experiences.  He provides diagnostic and treatment services for older teens and adults with ADHD, as well as related conditions such as depression, bipolar and anxiety disorders.  “I specialize in ADHD but provide a lot of “garden variety” psychiatric care, too.”


Dr. Silver has been working in the mental health field for over 30 years and has been practicing psychiatry for the past 10 years.  He received both his medical degree and his psychiatric training at the University of Maryland at Baltimore, as well as a master’s degree in Health Education from the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health.


He is a Maryland native and has a wife, three daughters, a dog, a cat and a rabbit, which is why he spends so much time at work.
