About Anxiety Disorders

While most of us occasionally feel anxiety or nervousness as we anticipate certain events, an anxiety disorder is something else entirely. It is a brain disorder that practically incapacitates the sufferer with constant, over-the-top worry, fear and panic. The individual with an anxiety disorder may experience obsessive negative thoughts, nightmares, and insomnia, and may be prone to compulsive checking and counting.
Anxiety disorders — such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder and social anxiety disorder — are associated with a range of behavioral, cognitive, physical and psychosocial symptoms. Such disorders can have devastating impacts on one’s life, including poor performance at school or on the job, the inability to hold a job and subsequent financial troubles, loss of interpersonal relationships, mood swings, and suicidal thoughts or behaviors. Clearly, anxiety disorder psychotherapy is required.   

Do I need treatment for my anxiety?

While some anxiety is normal, no one should have to live with near-constant fear and dread that is out of proportion to the situation. Anxiety disorders are treatable. Whether you need anticipatory anxiety treatment, anxious attachment treatment or treatment for any other form of anxiety disorder, the experienced anxiety disorder specialists at Legacy Recovery Center understand what you’re going through and will help.

After decades of experience, we have found that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is the most effective therapy for anxiety disorders. CBT is a type of talk therapy that helps people alter the way they think, react and behave so they feel less anxious. Using CBT acknowledges that intense anxiety and fear are often caused not by the situation, but by the way in which we think about it.

Treating Anxiety with CBT

CBT professionals use a variety of techniques to help individuals manage anxiety and control their behavior and thoughts. We help you identify and reframe negative thought patterns so they are more productive and positive. You learn to recognize cognitive distortions and correct these unhelpful thoughts. You may find relaxation exercises, behavioral experiments and journaling beneficial.
