What Our Anxiety Treatment can do for You

While each patient is unique and they can struggle with different types of anxiety, we can help customize the treatment for what the patient needs. Anxiety and panic disorders can interfere with daily responsibilities and life. Due to this, there are many people who will be overwhelmed with anxiety, especially when it comes to seeking professional treatment.

By working with our team at Center for Emotional Peace, we can help patients work through their anxiety and past the symptoms to lead a healthier lifestyle. Benefits of our anxiety treatment include:

  • Receiving treatment in a welcoming environment
  • A customized treatment plan that meets the specific needs of the patient
  • Learning and using the coping techniques to deal with anxiety
  • Possible medication to help relieve symptoms
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy that identifies the cause of the anxiety and how to begin facing it
  • Learning how to build a healthy support system in one’s life for dealing with these issues
  • Since each patient and the type of anxiety they struggle with can be unique, the treatment process may be a bit of a trial and error process. This can mean tweaking the dosage and type of therapy until we find the combination that works for the patient.

    Addressing the symptoms of Anxiety

    When it comes to addressing the symptoms of anxiety, it is important for people to seek professional treatment. While there are apps on smartphone devices that claim to offer support for mental health, they are not nearly as effective as people think. People who rely on substance abuse to relieve symptoms are only fueling it and risk making it worse.

    While a glass of wine after a long day can help to relieve stress, that will not work for anxiety. Signs and symptoms that show a patient’s anxiety is getting serious include:

  • Powerful feelings of nervousness and restlessness to the point of physical symptoms occurring
  • Rapid breathing and increased heart rate when facing the cause of anxiety
  • Sweating, trembling and possible gastrointestinal discomfort
  • Difficulty concentrating and focusing on anything besides specific worry
  • Being unable to control the anxiety and calm down
  • Difficulty getting sleep
  • Avoiding whatever causes the anxiety
  • Anxiety Treatment

    Our goal with anxiety treatment is to help the patient find an effective method for long term relief. While medication can help to relieve some symptoms, it will not be nearly as effective without therapy. Possible types of anxiety the patient can struggle with include agoraphobia, general anxiety disorder, separation anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, panic disorder and more.

    With therapy, we can identify the type of anxiety and the source that causes the patient to struggle in life. Therapy is not meant to be a lecture or scolding of the patient. With talk therapy, we help the patient identify the causes of their anxiety and guide the patient to find effective skills for dealing with the symptoms.

    We can also oversee any medication to ensure the patient consumes the proper dosage or receives changes to the dosage when they need it. With our treatment, the patient will be able to begin building a stable support system to help handle the anxiety. Over time, people will be able to handle the symptoms of their anxiety while also learning healthy methods for dealing with it.
