Treatment for Anxiety Disorder

When does a generalized anxiety disorder need residential anxiety rehab treatment? In life, it is inevitable for us to experience challenges and stressful situations. Anxiety is a process that our body developed to prepare us for any future event. Anxiety is normal and is considered “essential” from an evolutionary perspective. It motivates and alarms us to face life events that can affect us in negative ways. Anxiety, in brief, is the reason why you set an alarm when you have school or work, why you dress up before a date, and why look left and right before crossing the street. Yet anxiety for many individuals can be extreme in a manner that disrupts their daily life and causes them severe and intense psychological pain.

Due to a lack of knowledge and narrow perspectives, our society conceptualizes anxiety disorders as a personality flaw and often perceives them as a weakness of character. When dealing with anxiety disorders phrases such as “man up” or “you’re just over worrying” are as effective as telling a person with a broken leg to walk it off. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental disorders with many different categories including Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Social Phobia, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Specific Phobia, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Acute Stress Disorder.

There are various factors that result in these disorders with the most common including traumatic childhood experiences, severe stress, frequent or constant criticism, and genetic factors. Anxiety disorders are exhausting and mentally consuming and can even trigger physical distress.
