In brief: Psychiatrist

If you suspect that your fiance has attention deficit disorder (add) and he/she is currently not getting treatment, it would be useful to get an evaluation from a psychiatrist to determine if the symptoms are due to add and to evaluate whether there are other issues to address.
The most effective treatment for add is medication, while some types of therapies can assist.

good evaluation questionaires are availabe on line [Shire sponsors an excellent one.] If it looks positive then see a psychiatrist familiar with ADHD from treating children and adolescents with ADHD
