Everyone feels anxious from time to time. A big test, speaking in front of a crowd, or going on a date are events that typically make people nervous. But when anxiety becomes severe and affects your daily functioning, then it could be a more serious mental health condition known as an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S. About 40 million adults suffer from one. An anxiety disorder can produce debilitating symptoms and also interfere with your relationships, work, and other areas of life. Fortunately, anxiety is treatable. With the right resources, you can effectively manage your anxiety symptoms as well as live a fulfilling life with the help of Lucida Treatment’s anxiety treatment center.
There are many types of anxiety disorders. Though they all share common traits, they are set apart by cause, symptoms, or scope. For example, a few of the most common include:
Though there are many unique anxiety disorders, all share several signs and symptoms:
Diagnosing an anxiety disorder can only be done by a professional, such as a mental health therapist or doctor. If you think you have anxiety, reach out to a therapist or the professionals at a treatment center like Lucida.
Of course, there are many potential causes of anxiety disorders. For example, a few causes and risk factors include:
A co-occurring disorder is any condition that occurs alongside another. The two disorders, which are usually substance abuse and a mental health disorder, together are called a dual diagnosis. Either can come first, but they should be treated as one. This is an important criterion when you’re looking for treatment.
It is common for people with anxiety to have a co-occurring disorder. Below are a few examples of anxiety disorders and substance use disorders that commonly occur with them:
If you suspect you may be suffering from anxiety, then you should act immediately. Do not wait until your symptoms get “bad enough.” Untreated anxiety will get worse over time, making it harder to face the situations, people, events, or environments that make you nervous now. You may develop another disorder like depression, or you could turn to an unhealthy escape, such as alcohol or drugs, to cope.
There are far too many effective options for treating anxiety disorders for you to wait. Even if you are not sure you meet the criteria for an anxiety disorder, then mental health treatment can still help. You will learn effective ways to cope with your symptoms. Treatment will also help you build up your support system and put other key protective factors in place.
The following treatments are most common in treating anxiety disorders. Sometimes it takes a few tries before you find the right treatment method for you, and not all treatments work for everyone. It is important for you to make treatment decisions with your doctor. This is because choices are made based on:
The best anxiety treatment center offers a combination of different treatments. Medication along with therapy works for many people who suffer from anxiety.
Antidepressants work well for managing anxiety. They include selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) or serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). Anxiety medication works by regulating neurotransmitters in your brain that then produce symptoms of anxiety.
For example, effective medications include:
Some of these medications take a week or two to begin improving symptoms. It is common to experience unwanted side effects like sleepiness and nausea during the first few days of use. It is important to note that many anxiety medications come with a risk of dependence and abuse. Additionally, it is best to go over your options with a healthcare provider. If you try anxiety medication, then maintain an open line of communication with your doctor to adjust your dosage as needed.
Talk therapy is a reliable and evidence-based method for treating anxiety. Most notable among them is cognitive-behavioral therapy. It is provided by a mental health therapist or psychologist. CBT involves learning about the relationships between your thoughts, feelings, and actions. Coping skills are taught to help you better control the thoughts and feelings that lead to anxiety. This leads to reduced symptoms.
Alternative therapy is anything outside traditional one-on-one talk therapy. It could be mindfulness and meditation, psychodrama, yoga, and fitness, or any number of other activities.
