At the Delray Center for Healing, we understand that even mild anxiety disorders and stress-related conditions can seriously affect an individual’s personal and professional life. Left untreated, these conditions can lead to serious depression, substance abuse, anxiety-related disorders, and unnecessary suffering. However, we believe that anxiety disorders and stress-related conditions are entirely treatable. Consequently, that’s why we offer an anxiety disorder and stress treatment program.
There are a number of different issues that relate to stress and anxiety. And, these issues can transition into stress and anxiety disorders. Before treatment can commence, it’s important to identify the specific disorders individuals may be facing. This way, proper treatment is determined and individuals have the best chance of learning what they need to succeed post-treatment.
Generalized Anxiety Disorder, or GAD, is characterized by excessive levels of anxiety or worry for a period of 6 months or longer. Essentially, individuals get diagnosed when symptoms of this condition are debilitating to daily lifestyles. Some of the symptoms of GAD include:
Individuals diagnosed with Panic Disorder experience severe bouts of anxiety that stimulate a number of debilitating symptoms. These bouts are known as panic attacks. And are unforeseen, recurring, and even painful. While many panic attacks are unprovoked and unexpected, others may be triggered by fears or specific situations. And, this can vary depending on individual experiences.
Some characteristics of panic attacks may include:
Fear is a helpful human emotion. It aids us in steering clear of danger. However, a person with a phobia disorder may experience heightened levels of fear. Specifically, related to things or scenarios which may not be dangerous or threatening enough to evoke such emotional response.
Characteristics of people with phobia disorders may include:
Types of phobia disorders include:
Simple Phobias: When people think of phobias, they think of simple phobias. This is experiencing extreme anxiety when coming into contact with specific things or situations. For example, certain animals or insects, heights, flying on an airplane, blood, going to the dentist, thunderstorms, and more.
Agoraphobia: This phobia disorder is when people experience specific fear of situations like being in a crowd of people, using public transportation, being in enclosed spaces (like elevators), or even leaving the home.
Social Anxiety Disorder: This disorder is characterizable by intense fear and worry of experiencing social settings and situations. They over-analyze scenarios in fear of the negative judgment of others. So, they avoid social interactions to prevent any embarrassment or anxiety they would otherwise feel.
Separation Anxiety Disorder: While this disorder is commonly mistaken for only something children experience, it occurs in adults as well. Essentially, this disorder is characterizable by intense feelings of worry when separate from specific individuals. And, feelings of worry and dread like something bad may happen while being separated from a loved one during separation.
Fortunately, living with anxiety disorders is manageable with treatment. And, those diagnosed can live healthy, happy, and normal lives when they utilize what works for them. Here at Delray Center for Healing, we help people with anxiety disorders identify the specific issues in their own lives so they can face them head-on. And, develop coping skills and healthy thought patterns to tackle the everyday.
