Every day, thousands of people struggle with an anxiety disorder without realizing that they have one. To a degree, anxiety is a completely normal human experience. It’s a useful tool for motivating us to make changes or remove ourselves from potentially harmful situations. In extreme cases, this mechanism breaks down, causing people to experience extreme anxiety or have anxious reactions to normal situations. In these instances, an anxiety disorder treatment program from a reputable provider is the best option for dealing with these issues. Such a program can help to retrain the brain’s response to anxious situations.
True Life Center’s Anxiety Disorder Treatment Program
Anxiety signals dangerous, uncomfortable, or unfamiliar situations so that we remain aware and alert. However, for those suffering from an anxiety disorder, the warning signal often sounds loudly and consistently with no “off” switch in sight.
Anxiety, like all mental health conditions, stores in the body on a cellular level and causes the nervous system to operate from a constant state of hyper-arousal and hypo-arousal. This prolonged stress response causes emotional, physiological, and physical changes that disrupt normal body functioning and can have long-term consequences for your health. Symptoms range from unease and irritability to insomnia and heart palpitations, and can quickly progress from distressing to debilitating.
The physical and psychological effects of anxiety are, in fact, particularly damaging. It can cause major issues in normal, daily functioning. This makes professional medical treatment from a reputable facility an absolute necessity. On top of this, anxiety issues will frequently accompany drug abuse and addiction. As the person comes to rely on a particular substance, it can eventually replace his or her own natural ability to cope with stress and anxiety. Such dependence often requires addiction treatment along with a quality anxiety disorder treatment program.
