Anxiety Treatment Center

Anxiety can feel exhausting. It can turn everyday worries into overwhelming burdens. But there are ways to ease this. Treatment centers for anxiety set you up with tools and strategies to manage your anxiety and reclaim control of your life.


The Importance of Anxiety Treatment

Anxiety is a natural human response. If it becomes intrusive and interferes with daily life, treatment might need to be the next step. Untreated anxiety can strain relationships, diminish work performance, and leave you feeling constantly on edge.

Anxiety treatment puts building blocks in place to improve your quality of life. By managing worries and pinpointing the root causes, you can feel lighter. Treatment empowers you to tackle challenges with greater resilience and reclaim your peace.

The Difference Between Anxiety and an Anxiety Disorder

Everyone experiences anxiety from time to time. Before worrying further about whether treatment is for you, it’s best to differentiate between anxiety and an anxiety disorder.

Anxiety is an emotion characterized by worry, nervousness, or unease. Think of it as a flickering light—highlighting potential danger. It’s a common stress reaction. For instance, if you have a major exam coming up or financial struggles.

An anxiety disorder, however, is like a constant flickering light—disruptive to your daily life. These disorders involve intense and often irrational worry that is repetitive. Plus, it can lead to physical symptoms like nausea, jitters, or a racing heart. Different anxiety disorders each come with specific triggers and symptoms.

The Signs and Symptoms of Generalized 
Anxiety Disorder

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is an excessive and uncontrollable worry about aspects of your life. Not all symptoms are the same for every person with anxiety. Some signs include:

How Do You Help Someone With Anxiety?

Patience, understanding, and support are vital when helping someone with anxiety. It’s wonderful to be a shoulder for them to lean on. If you’re a trustworthy figure they feel safe with, they may be more open to the idea of professional help.

Aftermath Behavioral Health’s team of experts uses caring, proven approaches to treat anxiety. We work closely with each person to create a personalized plan that addresses their specific needs and goals. Whether it’s social anxiety, postnatal anxiety, performance anxiety, or GAD, we place no judgment. The goal is always a calmer and happier life for those in our care.

Anxiety and depression are different conditions, but they often go hand-in-hand. Both anxiety and depression can make each day a challenge.

Imagine feeling on edge all the time—like there’s a test tomorrow, even when there isn’t. Anxiety is a relentless worry that makes you feel restless and tense. Depression is a dark cloud hanging above you. It’s an extreme sadness that sucks the enjoyment out of things you once loved doing. Like anxiety, depression can cause tiredness and disrupted sleeping and eating patterns.

Anxiety certainly can cause tiredness, physically and mentally. Being in a constant state of high alert and muscle tension associated with anxiety can be debilitating. Because of this, fatigue and sleep problems can start.

Generalized Anxiety Therapy Options

What works for one person might not work for another. That’s why it’s important to find the best combination of treatments for your individual needs.

There are some options you can try from the comfort of your home. However, only try these after talking to your doctor because they may cause side effects, especially if you’re on other medications.

  • At-Home Treatments: There are many things you can do at home to manage anxiety, like relaxation techniques (deep breathing, meditation), exercise, healthy sleep habits, and a balanced diet.

  • Over-The-Counter (OTC) Treatments: Some OTC options like chamomile tea or L-theanine supplements might offer mild anxiety relief.

  • Natural Treatments: Like OTC options, some natural remedies like valerian root may offer mild relief.

Although we don’t offer medication-assisted treatment (MAT) at Aftermath Behavioral Health, various medicines are sometimes used to help ease anxiety symptoms. For example:

  • Antidepressants or Anti-Anxiety Meds: Doctors can prescribe these to manage symptoms like worry, restlessness, and sleep problems. We can connect you with agencies that provide MAT if deemed necessary.

  • Ketamine Treatment: This is a much newer option with limited research on it. However, it shows promise as a quick-relief option for treatment-resistant anxiety. Any use is only suitable under the supervision of a medical professional.

At Aftermath Behavioral Health, we understand that GAD can make everyday life feel unbearable. Our therapists create tailored anxiety treatment plans to help manage this.

Treatment options are expansive. Some common ones include:

Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a proven treatment for anxiety disorders. It helps you identify and challenge negative thought patterns, replace them with more positive and realistic ones, and develop coping mechanisms.

Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) focuses on mindfulness, managing emotions, and boosting healthy relationships. It can be especially helpful for people with anxiety who struggle with intense emotions.

The six main types of anxiety disorders are generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), panic disorder, social anxiety disorder, specific phobias, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). At Aftermath Behavioral Health, we can help you manage these.

Dealing with anxiety involves a combination of professional treatment, self-care strategies, and lifestyle changes. Some effective techniques include therapy, relaxation exercises, regular exercise, a balanced diet, and stress management.

The best treatment for anxiety depends on your needs and the type of anxiety disorder. In general, a combination of psychotherapy (like CBT or DBT) and, in some cases, medication can be very effective.

People with anxiety may appear restless, tense, or easily fatigued. They may also avoid certain situations or activities that trigger their anxiety. Struggles with concentration and physical symptoms like nausea could also be signs.
