ANXIETY DISORDER TREATMENT

he terms anxiety disorder and depression are commonly linked yet

present a separate variety of symptoms and therefore, different

treatment. If you or a loved one are suffering from a diagnosed

condition then you are aware of the trials and difficulties that come with

managing such a condition. Daily life becomes more difficult, and what are

normally everyday scenarios and experiences are met with an additional

layer of stress and uncertainty. The good news though, is that modern

medicine and treatment is continually advancing. Society is becoming more

aware of the dangers of untreated mental health conditions and the risks

that lie on the individual for letting these conditions go untreated.

One of the most common forms of treatment for anxiety disorder is

the use of medication such as an SSRI (or selective serotonin reuptake

inhibitor). Anxiety disorder causes a chemical balance to occur within the

brain which lowers the level of serotonin, a naturally occurring chemical.

Some physicians will prescribe medication in order to chemically rebalance

the brain, which ultimately can help lower stress levels and make daily life

more manageable. Individuals who suffer from anxiety disorder often view

normal tasks as more stressful, so having a low dose of a naturally occurring

chemical has been shown to correct the more common effects of anxiety

disorder.

Co existing conditions such as anxiety and depression can trigger the

need for different types of treatment however. There is no “one size fits all”

method for dealing with mental health conditions. Treatment will vary from

person to person, and there may be individuals who respond more positively

to different types of treatment.

Another form of anxiety disorder treatment is the use of CBT or

cognitive behavioral therapy. CBT is designed to create a lasting, long-term

treatment method wherein the patient takes a proactive approach to his or

her own treatment. In most cases, CBT will start with a 12 or 16 week

treatment period1. Some professionals will also use CBT because it often

gives the patient a sense of control over their behavior, and it teaches

patients to recognize behavior patterns

patients to recognize behavior patterns throughout daily life that typically go

unnoticed.

Low cost options are also available for individuals who struggle to

make ends meet. Medication and CBT can be expensive, but there practices

that operate on sliding scales based on the patient’s income. Additionally

there are federal programs and funded health centers that may be able to

provide direction for lower-income patients. Also, patients can check out the

university health centers and local clinics to see if there are free or reduced

cost mental health programs.
