Anxiety Disorder Treatment

Do you struggle with anxiety? Have you spent untold evenings in your bed but unable to sleep because your thoughts keep running around your head in circles? Has your anxiety started to affect your health? Are you finding yourself unable to sleep well, unable to eat, and without any interest in the things that used to bring you joy and happiness? If so, you will benefit from our anxiety disorder treatment.

“Anxiety is a thin stream of fear trickling through the mind. If encouraged, it cuts a channel into which all other thoughts are drained.” - Arthur Somers Roche

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is the fear, nervousness, or uneasiness that you feel about something that is happening, will happen, or may happen. In small amounts, anxiety can be good for us: for example, anxiety about being unable to pay one’s mortgage will motivate one to get a job and work hard. On the other hand, many times anxiety goes too far, and someone afflicted with too much anxiety will find themselves fixated on all the possible things that could go wrong in their lives. At its extreme, severe anxiety can be debilitating, and those who suffer from it can begin to develop other conditions as well.

Anxiety Treatment Program

Some—although not all—indicators of too much anxiety in your life include:

  • Sleeplessness, or difficulty falling asleep or remaining asleep
  • Irritability, especially sudden and irrational outbursts
  • Physical aches and pains that seem to have no logical explanation
  • Loss of appetite
  • Decreased sex drive
  • An increased tendency towards isolation
  • A loss of interest in activities that used to cause feelings of happiness and contentment

If you have any of these symptoms, or if you have noticed other things beginning to occur in your life, you may be suffering from an unhealthy level of anxiety and you would benefit from treatment of anxiety disorder. The pernicious thing about anxiety is that, as the other problems it causes begin to emerge, the anxiety levels tend to go up, leading to even more problems. It is a self-perpetuating, vicious cycle.

But you can break the cycle of anxiety, and we can help you do it. Our anxiety treatment program is designed to reach out to people in your situation and help them to be free from the crushing weight of their fears.

What is Severe Anxiety Disorder Treatment, and Why Will It Help You?

Treatment for an anxiety disorder can involve any one of several different approaches to helping you face your fears and eventually overcome them. Just as no two sets of fingerprints are exactly alike, so too are no two minds are exactly alike. Your mind works differently from your friend’s mind, and your friend’s mind works differently than your mind.

Keeping this in mind, at our anxiety disorder treatment center, we do not adopt a one-size-fits-all approach to anxiety treatment. Here are a few of the types of anxiety treatment available, but keep in mind that the approach we feel is a great fit for you may be one of these, none of these, or a combination of parts of these:

  • Exposure therapy – With exposure therapy, the person who suffers from anxiety is gradually exposed to the things that he or she fears. As they learn to cope with the level of exposure, it is gradually increased until they are able to manage talking or thinking about the subject without any increased anxiety. The idea is to help the patient become comfortable around the situation or object which is the source of the anxiety.
  • Relaxation therapy – Relaxation therapy helps the patient learn to manage the stress associated with various forms of anxiety. The idea behind this is that many times, the anxiety causes additional stress such that the anxiety itself becomes the target of the sufferer’s fears. By teaching our patients to relax through the use of meditation or other mechanisms, we help defuse the stress levels and help our patients learn to ratchet down their tension, resulting in overall levels of anxiety.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapyCBT is used to assist our patients in understanding how it is they think and why they respond the way they do in a given situation. The goal is to assist our patients in knowing themselves and assist them in identifying triggering behaviors and situations which lead to anxiety attacks. By learning to manage these triggers, they learn to reduce their levels of anxiety.

Keep in mind that you are unique, and we will — after spending some time with you — present you with an anxiety disorder treatment plan that incorporates some, all, or none of the above types of treatment. You can rest assured that whatever we come up with, it will be with your best interests in mind and will be targeted towards helping you live a happier, fuller life.

The Results of Anxiety Therapy

Of course, you are probably not as interested in the mechanisms of the treatment as much as you are interested in the results thereof. So, what can you expect after completing anxiety therapy at one of our anxiety disorder treatment centers? Among other things, you can expect:

  • Decreased stress levels all around
  • Improved tangible health benefits, such as lower blood pressure
  • An overall increased sense of well-being and happiness
  • Confidence in yourself that you can manage the anxiety attacks when they come
  • Improved appetite and sleeping habits
  • If you have gained or lost weight as a result of anxiety, you can undertake a well-balanced diet and exercise routine with the full expectation of returning to your optimal weight
  • An improved feeling about the future: no more being filled with fear about what tomorrow might bring
  • And more!
