Anxiety disorder treatment can help you learn to cope

Women and Anxiety Disorder

Anxiety is a serious but very treatable condition. While experiencing some level of anxiety in our lives is perfectly normal, there are women whose anxiety becomes an excessive, constant force that can make getting through the day seem impossible. Women are significantly more likely to develop an anxiety disorder in their lifetime than men. They are often under-diagnosed due to the denial and lack of realization that a real problem exists. When left untreated, these disorders can be debilitating. Fortunately, treatment for anxiety does exist and has been proven to be very effective. The staff at our inpatient anxiety treatment center understands how anxiety affects women, and how it interacts with substance abuse. We’re here to teach you the tools to cope with anxiety.

5 Major Anxiety Disorders That Women Face:

  • General Anxiety Disorder, commonly referred to as GAD, is characterized by a constant state of exaggerated worry and chronic anxiety even when there is little or nothing to prompt it. Physical symptoms include fatigue, headaches, muscle tension, aches, insomnia, and irritability. Effective anxiety treatment for GAD involves cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, also called OCD, is characterized by repeated, unwanted thoughts and/or repetitive behaviors. Individuals with OCD use “rituals” to temporarily relieve their anxiety. Effective anxiety treatment for OCD involves exposure-based psychotherapy.
  • Panic Disorder is most commonly characterized by panic attacks, which come with no warning and involve intense fear, increased heart rate, weakness, faintness or dizziness. Treatment for panic disorder usually involves certain kinds of medication combined with cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety disorder that individuals can develop after witnessing a dangerous or life-threatening event. Individuals experience fright and anxiety about the event long after they are safe from danger. Treatment for PTSD includes cognitive behavioral therapy and desensitization techniques.
  • Social Anxiety Disorder is characterized by an overwhelming fear and anxiety about everyday social situations. It can be limited in scope to a particular circumstance like public speaking, or in its more severe forms can produce overwhelming anxiety any time the sufferer is around other people. Treatment for social anxiety disorder includes psychotherapy like cognitive behavioral therapy, desensitization techniques, and social skills training.
