If you do not cycle through the Bi-polar symptoms then get a second opinion. Try to see someone who knows more about ADD then this therapist. Because frankly you could be either or both. Many times there are co-morbids that go along with ADD. I certainly have never been arrested nor am I particularly psychotic. DH has never been arrested. We do not self medicate with booze or drugs. Yet we are both ADHD, and we both have Bi-Polar. My eldest daughter has both and she has self medicated, been in trouble with the law, and been psychotic when she is high. We are all different. As librarian_chef says you need to look at what is best for you. If it is not debilitating enough to warrant therapy and/or medication then you don’t need to pursue it. But otherwise ask for a second opinion.
