How Long Does Treatment Take?

Can You Treat Anxiety Disorder Without Medication?

What is the Difference Between Anxiety Disorders and Worrying?

Anxiety disorders aren’t only worrying. Someone with an anxiety disorder is chronically overwhelmed with feelings of fear, dread, and panic. These emotions become all-encompassing and affect how the individual lives their day to day life.

Everyone experiences periods of stress or worry. The difference is that anxiety disorder is not a period of worry, but rather a constant state of emotional turmoil.

Is Anxiety Caused by a Chemical Imbalance?

Researchers do not understand entirely what causes anxiety disorders, however, chemicals in the brain are suspected to play a role. Long-term or extreme stress can affect the balance of the brain’s mood-influencing chemicals, such as serotonin. When these chemicals are out of balance, an anxiety disorder can develop.

What are the Risks of Untreated Anxiety?

Untreated anxiety can worsen quickly. An untreated anxiety disorder can lead to other disorders such as depression as well as substance use disorder. Often, someone with an anxiety disorder that goes untreated turns to drugs or alcohol to manage their symptoms. Subsequently, an addiction develops.

When the individual finally seeks help, these co-occurring disorders must be treated in order for the person to make a full recovery.

Can You Go to Rehab for Anxiety?

Yes. Many rehab centers specialize in treating mental health conditions and can help you recover from anxiety disorder.

For the best chance of recovery, the anxiety treatment center you choose should offer individualized treatment plans with multidisciplinary interventions that treat the whole person.
