Anxiety Disorder Treatment Center
Although everyone feels anxious or nervous sometimes, those with anxiety disorders have constant and abnormal fear or worry. There are various types of anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and separation anxiety (SepAD). In most cases, people suffering from anxiety disorders have symptoms that disrupt their daily lives.
Signs of Anxiety Disorders
- Endless checking or rechecking of actions
- Constant and unrealistic worry about everyday occurrences/activities
- Fear and anxiety with no apparent cause
- Panic attacks
Anxiety Disorders Can be Treated in Drug Rehab
At Stepping Stone Center for Recovery, treatment consists of psychological counseling, medical treatment, and drug and alcohol addiction treatment. A combination of therapies helps a patient live a life without anxiety. Specific details of treatment depend on the client’s particular disorder. That is why all our addiction programs are individualized treatment plans.
Because clients with anxiety disorders are generally focused on specific fears, traditional “talk therapy” is not effective. Instead, cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is recommended. As its name suggests, cognitive behavioral therapy has both a cognitive and a behavioral component. Patients learn that their fears are irrational or unrealistic and then they learn to adjust their reactions. In this way, they eventually become desensitized to things they once anguished over.
Individuals suffering from a coexisting anxiety disorder while in our inpatient addiction treatment program will also be under the supervision of one of our medical professionals. If necessary, the medical professional will treat the anxiety disorder with medications, including antidepressants, anti-anxiety medicines, or beta blockers. Any medicines prescribed are designed to help regulate brain chemicals that govern mood or behavior, alleviating or even eliminating anxiety symptoms.
Our addiction professionals know how to create a balanced combination of various treatment methods to provide a client with optimal care and a successful recovery.
