Anxiety Disorders vs. Everyday Anxieties

Anxiety treatment helps patients address and overcome several different anxiety disorders.

To some extent, all individuals experience anxiety. But anxiety escalating into overwhelming distress or fear may be something more.

Anxiety disorders bring you beyond normal levels of anxiousness. They prevent many individuals from performing everyday tasks.

In America, anxiety disorders are the most common mental health condition. Approximately 40 million adults have one.

Anxiety treatment in our Surprise or Sun City, Arizona facility can help.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder Symptoms

Most people seeking anxiety treatment do so for Generalized Anxiety Disorder or GAD.

This type of anxiety disorder causes persistent and amplified worries about daily life. But not everyone with GAD will experience all the same symptoms.

Symptoms may vary depending on other individual factors. This is true for any mental illness, not just anxiety disorders.

The symptom that is present in all anxiety disorders is a change(s) in the way an individual functions each day.

Other Disorders That May Require Anxiety Treatment

Generalized anxiety disorder isn’t the only diagnosable form of anxiety. It also isn’t the only one that may be aided by the use of anxiety treatment. Panic disorders, phobias, and social anxiety disorders are also common. These are treatable, as well. With anxiety treatment and care, each of the four can be overcome. The first step is understanding the differences in these disorders. And part of this is understanding what triggers them. 

Panic Disorders

Panic disorders are characterized by panic attacks. These lead to an overwhelming and often sudden feeling of terror or distress. They also cause troubling physical reactions.  These may include chest pain, palpitations, dizziness, stomach aches, and difficulty breathing. This often starts in young adults and is more common in women.

Panic disorders may start when you are under a high amount of stress. But most anxiety disorders improve after treatment. Anxiety treatment will help you recognize damaging patterns of thinking. This way, you can change these patterns of thinking before they can lead you to panic. In certain cases, prescription medications can make anxiety disorders easier to manage. 

Anxiety Patients with Specific Phobias

Anxiety patients with specific phobias also experience heightened physical and emotional symptoms. The difference with phobias is that they don’t strike without warning the way panic attacks often do. In phobias, there are specific triggers that cause the reaction. Often, these triggers can be irrational. But they don’t feel this way for the person experiencing them.

Most individuals with a phobia will have more than one trigger. Common phobias are of heights, specific animals, needles, and blood.

We’ll help you understand your triggers so you can avoid heightened fear when you encounter them. Both of our Sun City and Surprise mental health facilities are available to you.

Social Anxiety Disorders

Social anxiety disorders cause overwhelming anxiousness in everyday social situations. They cause intense fears and worries about social embarrassments or awkwardness. Individuals with social anxiety often avoid speaking their minds in group settings. You may avoid participating in conversations at work, school, or even with friends.

You may also feel like you’ve become isolated. If you need anxiety treatment, you have options. Choose either our Surprise or Sun City locations for innovative and proven care. 

Common Causes of Anxiety Disorders

Anxiety disorders can develop from a variety of factors. Mental health conditions may occur in different ways for different people. What causes your anxiety disorder may be different than what causes a relative’s or colleague’s. One of the largest links is genetics. There is evidence that anxiety disorders run in families.

Another common link is high levels of stress or trauma. Abusive relationships, loss, or exposure to violence may also lead to anxiety disorders. Negative events early in life are another risk factor. These put an individual at a greater risk of developing an anxiety disorder now and later in life.

Anxiety Treatment

Anxiety disorder treatment often includes a range of proven therapeutic techniques. Cognitive behavioral therapy is one that we make use of often. It will help you think about and react differently to the things that trigger your anxiety. It will also help you develop certain social skills. This is helpful if you experience heightened anxiety in social situations.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is useful in treating anxiety in a variety of ways. It focuses on pinpointing, confronting, and overcoming damaging or distorted thoughts and behaviors. Group, family, and individual psychotherapy may also be part of your anxiety treatment.

We also use holistic remedies. Wellness education, recreational activities, and support can work wonders in anxiety treatment. For some, medications may be prescribed to help you manage your anxiety disorder. Many of these medications will also help you sleep. We determine the need for these prescriptions on a case-by-case basis.

Anxiety treatment centers, like ours in Surprise and Sun City, will teach you many useful techniques. Techniques to help you relax, manage your stress, and overcome triggers. This is true for several anxiety disorders.

We’ll help with generalized anxiety, panic, phobias, and social anxiety treatment, as well. 

Costs of Anxiety Treatment

Many patients find that this decreases the stress of seeking treatment. We also accept most other major health insurance providers. With or without insurance, the final cost will depend on your specific disorder(s) and needs.

If you have severe anxiety, we’ll likely recommend a more thorough program. This will come with increased access and greater time requirements. If you have a strong support system at home, you may need fewer hours in treatment.

We’ll work with you to put together the best treatment plan for your needs. Once that’s done, we can give you more information about the costs. Call our specialists for a fast, free, and easy insurance verification. If you don’t have insurance, please ask about alternative payment options. We’ll offer a complementary mental health assessment, as well. At Emerald Isle, we want to see you get the care you need.
