Anxiety Treatment Center

Steps Recovery Center recognizes how vital the mind, body, and spirit are in their connection to the whole person. We take a holistic approach to treating anxiety that includes treating the whole person, and find that it tends to be more successful, especially since anxiety disorders can affect every aspect of a person’s life. With a customized and individualized program, a holistic approach just makes sense. It affords an opportunity to meet the patient’s physical and psychological needs and allows them to engage physically, emotionally, and mentally.

Take That First Step

The Four Types of Anxiety

Here are the four different types of anxiety disorders:

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD): This anxiety disorder is characterized by chronic worry and tension, even when there is nothing to provoke it.
  • Panic Disorder: This anxiety disorder is characterized by unexpected and frequent episodes of intense fear accompanied by physical symptoms, such as chest pain, difficulty breathing, racing heart, dizziness, and abdominal problems.
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD): This anxiety disorder is characterized by recurring, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and repetitive behaviors (compulsions). Repetitive behaviors include excessive hand washing, checking, counting, and cleaning. An individual develops these obsessions as a coping mechanism to prevent overthinking.
Performing these rituals, however, merely provides temporary relief. Furthermore, it can worsen a person’s anxiety because not performing these rituals can result in increased stress.
  • Social Anxiety Disorder (Phobia): This anxiety disorder is characterized by overwhelming anxiety and excessive self-consciousness in social situations. This phobia can be limited to one type of situation, such as a person having a fear of public speaking or eating in front of others. In its most severe form, it can be so broad that a person displays symptoms every time they’re with people.

Anxiety and Addiction

People with anxiety disorders are more likely to turn to drugs and alcohol for relief. Individuals with this disorder are two times more likely to develop an addiction compared to the general population, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Excessive drug and alcohol use typically worsen a person’s symptoms, leading to dependence on self-medication. It can result in a dangerous cycle that’s difficult to break, and it can also harm a person’s loved ones. Moreover, those with an anxiety disorder usually experience stronger withdrawal symptoms than those without anxiety when trying to quit using substances.

Anxiety Treatment

Anxiety disorders and addiction are treatable, and many people experience symptom relief and improvement in their quality of life with professional treatment. However, treatment success is relative. Some people complete treatment within weeks, while others may take months. For instance, those with multiple anxiety disorders and other mental health conditions may need more time to recover. A compassionate provider from an inpatient treatment center can conduct a comprehensive assessment before tailoring an individualized treatment plan.<br><br>

A person with an anxiety disorder can receive the following types of treatment:

Medication: Medication treatment for anxiety disorders is usually safe and effective when enforced in conjunction with therapy. Medication can be a short or long-term treatment option depending on the severity of a person’s symptoms. However, a patient will need time and patience to discover the medication that works best for them.

Integrative Behavioral Health: Complementary and alternative medicine is becoming increasingly popular as mental health professionals are searching for additional ways to treat anxiety. This type of method combines the use of complementary treatment with conventional medicine and includes:
  • Stress and relaxation techniques
  • Meditation
  • Yoga
  • Acupuncture
There are several more methods to treat anxiety disorders, and an inpatient treatment center can help a person reclaim their life. Getting help from a treatment center can help an individual manage their symptoms, and a professional will provide them with tools so that they can achieve a better quality of life.

The staff and facility is amazing- Couldn’t ask for anything better. The program is well rounded with rec activities, equine therapy, gender therapy, group therapy, individual and couples therapy, and also attends various 12 Step support groups such as AA or NA. They also have family therapy and processing with options for individual settings or in a group. These help families understand what their loved ones who suffer from addiction is going through and how to support them, and also gives them their own support system.

This place saved my life! The therapists were very helpful, friendly and really cared about the clients wellbeing. The tech’s were alway helpful with meds and anything that was needed. House manager was amazing, had high expectations on job duties, and kept a very clean organized atmosphere. Food was always amazing. I never went hungry! The information and skills that I have learned and applied to my life are priceless. If you’re not willing to put forth the work to change your life this is not your place, but if you are this is the first Step to take. I Love everyone at Steps. Thank you for all your help

I’d been to other recovery centers before but this one was the best, it stuck because I was willing to do the work, and with the help I received from staff I am now celebrating a year of sobriety in a couple of days. Update; I’m now 18 months sober as of yesterday and I still keep in touch with my steps family. The lessons I learned at steps will stick with me for the rest of my life. Thank you for giving me my life back.
