Social Phobia Treatment

Social phobia is an anxiety disorder that causes severe anxiety and nervousness in everyday social situations. Social anxiety disorder includes fear of embarrassing oneself in any situation. Activities such as waiting in line or speaking in front of others can cause paralyzing anxiety. Despite understanding that these fears are irrational, a person suffering from a social phobia is unable to move past the anxiety.

Most people feel nervous or anxious in some social situations. However, those with social phobia have a persistent and chronic fear that interferes with everyday functioning. Social phobia can become so severe it affects work, family, and the ability to maintain relationships.

  • Sweating
  • Trembling
  • Dizziness
  • Dry mouth

Drugs and alcohol can mask the symptoms of social anxiety disorder. However, once drugs and alcohol are removed, the symptoms of social phobia will still be present. The fear will again send the patient out seeking a way to manage feelings caused by the mental health disorder.
