Anxiety Disorder Treatment
Learn more about treatment for anxiety disorders at Sunrise Recovery Ranch in Riverside, CA
The category of anxiety disorders includes a variety of conditions that are characterized by the presence of excessive and potentially overwhelming fear and worry. Examples of anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, separation anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, agoraphobia, and specific phobia. Each of these conditions can have a profoundly negative impact on a person’s physical, psychological, and social wellbeing, and can dramatically limit his or her ability to live a productive and satisfying life.
When a person who is already struggling with an addiction to alcohol or another drug develops an anxiety disorder, the combined impact of the substance use disorder and the anxiety disorder can be devastating. However, when a person in this situation gets effective professional help from a treatment center whose program provides comprehensive care, he or she can regain control over his or her behaviors, escape the chains of anxiety and addiction, and pursue a much happier and healthier future.
How to Help a Loved One
Helping a loved one get treatment for anxiety disorders
Caring about a person who is struggling with an anxiety disorder can be a wrenching experience. No one wants to see a loved one’s life become diminished by what can appear to be irrational fears or worries. But once you understand that your loved one is dealing with a mental health disorder, you can take a few simple yet essential steps that may make a world of difference in your loved one’s life:
- Get the facts about what your loved one is experiencing. Anxiety disorders share similar characteristics, but they are distinct disorders that impact sufferers in unique ways. Talk to your loved one to better understand how his or her life is impacted, and conduct your own research to learn as much as you can about the specific disorder.
- Identify the types of treatment that have helped others whose struggles were similar to what your loved one is experiencing, and find treatment centers that offer this type of rehabilitation.
- Discuss what you have learned with your loved one. But remember that your goal is to have a discussion, not deliver a lecture. Tell your loved one about the treatment centers for anxiety disorders you have discovered, and listen to his or her responses. Do not issue ultimatums or allow the discussion to devolve into an argument. No matter how the first talk goes, keep healthy lines of communication open.
- Help with logistics. Make appointments, provide transportation, arrange for childcare, and do whatever else you can to remove the obstacles that are standing between your loved one and the treatment that he or she needs.
- Be supportive before, during, and after your loved one enters treatment. Fear of the unknown can make the days leading up to treatment particularly angst-worthy, and being in a residential program can be disconcerting at first. Do whatever you can to remain a positive source of support and encouragement for your loved one.
Finally, remember that attaining help at a treatment center is just the first step. Your loved one will need your continued support for months and years to come. Leave no doubt in his or her mind that you will be there every step of the way.
Why Consider Treatment
Why consider treatment for anxiety disorder at Sunrise Recovery Ranch in Riverside, CA
When a person who is experiencing an anxiety disorder does not get the treatment that he or she needs, the ever-worsening symptoms can have a negative impact on virtually all areas of his or her life. Depending upon the type of anxiety disorder that the individual is dealing with, he or she may be rendered incapable of maintaining healthy relationships, getting and keeping a job, paying his or her bills, having positive social experiences, and otherwise participating in a healthy and satisfying life. Anxiety disorders can lead to both isolation and ostracization, which can undermine a person’s independence and force him or her to rely on friends or family members for support. Individuals who are dealing with a substance use disorder in addition to their anxiety disorders are at significantly increased risk for enduring continued physical, psychological, and socioeconomic damage. With a diminished capacity for experiencing the joys of life, individuals who are dealing with addiction and a co-occurring anxiety disorder may find themselves estranged from family and friends, living what may feel like a helpless and hopeless existence. Thankfully, seeking rehab for an anxiety disorder at a quality treatment center can combat these negative consequences, or prevent them altogether.
