About Anxiety Disorders

mental health rehab

Anxiety rehab programs help you learn to cope with your symptoms in a safe and healthy way.

According to the American Psychiatric Association, there are several different types of anxiety disorders such as generalized anxiety disorders, panic disorders, and phobias. The causes, severity, and symptoms are unique to the individual, but, many have:

  • Excessive and constant worries or overwhelming fears
  • Uncontrollable, obsessive, or intrusive negative thoughts that can lead to an inability to focus, depression, isolation, or behavioral problems that interfere with work, school, and other relationships
  • Abused alcohol or drugs to self-medicate

Counseling

Counseling is a method of treatment in rehab for anxiety that focuses on guiding and supporting the individual and helping them with their interpersonal needs. It may include family, couples, or group counseling, education, and the identification of specific psychosocial services that will help the individual in the long run take more control over their life.

Medications

Benzodiazepines may be prescribed for short-term use, but, should not be the first line of treatment without comprehensive counseling and therapies to help the person get to the root of their anxiety and other underlying problems or issues that need to be changed.

Behavioral Interventions

Methods of treatment in rehab for anxiety encompasses a wide range of behavioral therapies to break the hold uncontrollable anxiety can have on the person. This involves changing thought patterns and the emotions or reactions to them, developing behaviors that are more positive and healthy, and learning skills and techniques to cope with or avoid anxiety related conditions.

The most common behavioral therapies in rehab for anxiety include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapies (CBT) which help the person to identify problematic areas and reconsider how they think about themselves, their environments, and the people around them and how certain behaviors have an effect how they think and feel. By recognizing the relationships between beliefs, thoughts, emotions, and actions that lead to habits, good and bad, CBT teaches the person how to make their lives better by changing those areas that are negative and unhealthy.
  • Exposure Therapy is a form of CBT that helps to reduce responses to fear and anxiety by gradually exposing the person to those situations or conditions until they become less sensitive to them over time.
  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) is a form of therapy which can be integrated with CBT techniques to combine acceptance (living in the day and experiencing things without unreasonable judgments) and change. DBT teaches mindfulness and skills for interpersonal effectiveness, regulating emotions, and tolerating distress.
