Experiencing stress and occasional anxiety is a normal part of life. Generally, when the event causing the stress and anxiety is over, the feelings pass in a reasonable time. However, feelings of excessive fear and worry remain ever-present for millions of Americans, leading to an anxiety disorder. Anxiety can take on many forms and range from mild to severe.
Most people with mild anxiety can manage their symptoms with lifestyle changes and therapy. Moderate to severe anxiety can require medication, therapy, or a combination of both. An individual therapy program is a critical component of anxiety disorder treatment. Contact Harmony Hills at 855.494.0357 to learn more about individual therapy and anxiety disorder treatment.
What Do Anxiety Disorder Treatment Centers Offer?
For people with anxiety disorders, excessive and persistent worry over everyday situations dominates their thinking. Many people with higher levels of anxiety experience anxiety attacks, which can morph into panic attacks. These attacks are intense and frightening, leaving many to feel that they have a heart attack or worse. Symptoms of anxiety can be challenging to regulate and control and can have profound impacts on daily functioning.
Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, and anxiety disorder treatment centers offer compassionate care from knowledgeable mental health professionals. A residential treatment program for anxiety offers a safe, stable environment where clients can become immersed in anxiety treatment without the daily stressors that can trigger anxiety attacks. For individuals who cannot commit to residential treatment, help is available from a partial hospitalization program (PHP) or intensive outpatient program (IOP). At Harmony Hills, therapeutic approaches for treating anxiety disorders include:
- 12-step therapy
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)
- EMDR therapy
- Family therapy
- Group therapy
- Trauma therapy
Anxiety disorder treatment centers like Harmony Hills offer clients much-needed peer support, education about anxiety, coping skills, communication skills, and the tools needed to identify triggers and manage symptoms so that they no longer interfere with daily functioning.
The Benefits of Individual Therapy for Anxiety Disorder Treatment
Mental health disorders like anxiety are complex, particularly when individuals have a dual diagnosis of anxiety and depression or anxiety and addiction. Treatment for anxiety disorders varies based on the type of anxiety, the severity of symptoms, and medical history. When you come to Harmony Hills, you will meet with a psychiatrist and therapist for a thorough intake evaluation to help determine your needs and course of treatment.
Everyone is different, so a “one-size-fits-all” approach to treatment does not work. Your treatment plan will look distinct from those of your peers. That said, every client’s plan involves individual therapy. You will have multiple individual therapy sessions weekly with your primary clinician. Initial sessions will center around your clinician getting to know your history, details of your current life, and understanding your goals for treatment. Your therapist will draw on several therapeutic approaches to help you work through your unique challenges. Some of the benefits of individual therapy you can expect to gain include:
- Improved communication skills
- Healthier interpersonal relationships
- Increased insight and self-awareness
- Learning to identify triggers
- Enhanced coping skills
- Ability to effectively regulate moods and emotions
- Learning to replace maladaptive thoughts and behaviors with healthier ones
Through our years of experience providing top-rated mental health treatment, we know that the thought of exposing your most private thoughts, feelings, fears, and experiences can be intimidating, especially early in treatment. Be assured that our goal is to help you work through your challenges to living your best life and that no one here is judging you.
