Anxiety: Signs, Symptoms, & Treatment

Anxiety disorders are the most frequent mental health issue in the United States, affecting more than 40 million adults. Unfortunately, despite the fact that anxiety is so common, only around 36% of those who suffer from it acquire the correct treatment.

Many people may put off seeking anxiety treatment because they can’t tell when their anxiety has progressed to the point where it’s deemed a condition.

Types of anxiety disorders include:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) – Feelings of dread and worry that are persistent and unprovoked
  • Social anxiety disorder – extreme anxiety of daily social settings and other people’s opinions
  • Panic disorder – Fear and panic striking suddenly and without notice.
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) – Recurring thoughts that are accompanied by repeat acts in an attempt to alleviate the ideas
  • Specific phobias – strong fear and fear of a particular location, circumstance, or object

The following are some frequent anxiety disorder signs to look out for in a loved one or yourself:

  • Excessive panic, fear, or worrying
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Panic or anxiety attacks
  • Irrational fears
  • Problems sleeping
  • Avoidance of situations or places for fear that they could trigger anxiety

We specialize in mood disorder treatment, including anxiety treatment, to assist patients in overcoming and managing their mental health issues. 

Because there are so many different types of anxiety disorders, treatment varies from person to person. Treatment for generalized anxiety disorder will differ slightly from treatment for social anxiety disorder. Furthermore, everyone is different, and what works for one person may not work for another. We attempt to build individualized treatment programs for each patient as a result of these variances. While each patient will be exposed to a range of mental health treatment modalities, such as therapies and clinical approaches, their treatment will be altered as needed as they advance through our programs depending on what is and is not working for them.

All patients will get one-on-one therapy with their appointed therapists as well as group therapy sessions during their treatment stay. Patients can delve deeper into their issues and find the optimal knowledge of their mental health throughout these therapy sessions. This realization allows further personal development and lays a solid foundation for long-term progress.
