More About Anxiety
Anxiety or the feeling of nervousness and fear, is a normal part of life; most people feel anxious from time-to-time, and anxiety can be a valuable tool to alert a person to danger or to attend to an important situation. However, in some cases, anxiety becomes more than what is an expected reaction to a stressful event or situation.
Some individuals experience anxiety to the point that it makes many, or even all aspects of daily living difficult: relationships with spouses, family members, coworkers and friends, physical and mental health, hygiene and self-care and attending to mundane tasks. People with anxiety disorders tend to ruminate, worry excessively and feel constant fear and nervousness. For some, this anxiety can become so overwhelming and overpowering that a person finds that he or she feels debilitated and disabled.
Anxiety disorders can be classified into specific disorders including Panic Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Social Anxiety Disorder, Specific Phobias, and Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). Although each specific disorder has a different set of symptoms associated with it, all disorders share the characteristics of excessive and irrational fear and/or dread.
Anxiety Disorders may occur at the same time as other physical or mental health issues, including substance abuse or dependence, depressive symptoms, or medical conditions which can often disguise the person’s anxiety or even make the anxiety symptoms worse. Additionally, many people with anxiety disorders experience significant physical symptoms (difficulty breathing, GI distress, blood pressure problems, etc.) as a result of the high stress levels they experience. Often these secondary physical symptoms necessitate medical treatment. Anxiety disorders are a mental illness which require treatment involving learning effective coping skills to help the person minimize the negative effects upon daily life. Further, because of the high levels of stress that accompany anxiety disorders, many people experience significant physical symptoms (breathing trouble, GI problems, headaches, blood pressure abnormalities, recurrent headaches, etc.) which can require medical treatment as well.
How Helix Healing & Recovery Treats Clients Recovering From Anxiety
Helix Healing & Recovery is modeled after Hanbleceya Treatment Center, which has a rich history of treating anxiety that goes back to 1979. Our first priority is treating the person and we view a client’s mental health and substance abuse issues as a part of the human being who comes to us seeking help and relief from suffering. The philosophy at Helix Healing & Recovery is to view the whole person –the person’s strengths, unique talents, and individual struggles. While many of our treatment modalities are effective for treating an array of “diagnoses,” we believe in the importance of recognizing the unique qualities of each human being and tailor aspects of treatment approaches to address aspects of an individual’s behavior that interfere with his or her ability to live a meaningful and productive life.
Helix Healing and Recovery community offers a safe and loving environment in which clients learn to respond to themselves, to others, and to situations in the world in an authentic and effective way. There is one main goal: to support clients in learning the skills he/she needs to live a happy, healthy, independent life. If you or a loved-one is suffering from anxiety, we are here to help. Your admission starts with a phone call to one of our admissions coordinators, who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
