Anxiety is more than a word; anxiety is what happens when we are faced with a situation which causes us an extreme amount of stress. Remember the first time you were in a situation where your heart beat wildly, you perspired from nervousness, you forgot what you wanted to say or couldn’t speak at all? That is anxiety, and it’s worse for those who are diagnosed with an anxiety disorder.
Anxiety treatment can help those with extreme levels of anxiety. We all know someone who has a high level of anxiety, but for most of us our level of anxiety while unpleasant, is manageable. However, anxiety has many forms and can render people completely incapable to go about their normal life. Anxiety differs for everyone. Some people have anxiety of extreme fear, sometimes accompanied by panic, others have extreme anxiety with little or no noticeable reason for the “anxiety attack.” For those with a diagnosis of anxiety disorder, anxiety has a learned response that has managed to become so strong that they cannot get it under control, no matter how hard they try. Anxiety treatment is the only way to regain a manageable life, free of debilitating levels of anxiety.
Rogers Memorial Hospital is exceptional in anxiety treatment. Our treatment team utilizes CBT and ERP to teach responses both free of anxiety and with manageable levels of anxiety Psychiatrists help Rogers patients unlearn the anxiety response and replace it with a response that allows the patient to move forward and deal with the stressful situation in a meaningful way. Our anxiety treatment helps patients realize a life free from anxiety is not only possible, but can be learned and practiced.
If you, or someone you know is experiencing an anxiety disorder, understand anxiety does not have to rule your life.
