Anxiety disorders are estimated to be the most common mental health problem in the United States with over 40 million adults struggling. Unfortunately, although anxiety is so common, only about 36% of these people actually receive treatment.1
Many people may neglect to get anxiety treatment because they struggle to recognize when their anxiety has reached the level where it’s considered a disorder. When that worry or panic starts to hinder your everyday life, it is time to seek anxiety disorder treatment at a mental health facility.
Types of Anxiety Disorders
Anxiety disorders are a type of mood disorder that deals with intense fear or panic that is accompanied by mental, physical, and behavioral symptoms that can hinder a person’s life.
Types of anxiety disorders include:
- Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) – consistent feelings of anxiety and worry that are unprompted
- Social anxiety disorder – excessive fear surrounding everyday social situations and the opinions of others
- Panic disorder – sudden instances of fear and terror that can come without warning
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) – recurrent thoughts accompanied by repetitive behaviors to try and alleviate these thoughts
- Specific phobias – intense anxiety and fear of a specific place, situation, or thing

Our South Florida Anxiety Disorder Treatment
At Banyan Mental Health, we understand that anxiety can be debilitating. We focus on treatment for mood disorders including anxiety treatment to help people overcome and manage their mental health disorders.
Because there are numerous types of anxiety disorders, treatment can vary from case to case. Generalized anxiety disorder treatment will be slightly different from social anxiety disorder treatment. Also, everyone is unique and what works for one person may not be as effective for another person. Because of these differences, we work to create tailored treatment plans for each patient. While every patient will be exposed to a variety of mental health treatment methods including therapies and clinical approaches, as the patient progresses through our programs their treatment will be adjusted as necessary based on what is and is not working for them.
During their anxiety treatment, all patients will participate in one-on-one therapy with their designated therapists as well as group therapy sessions. These therapy sessions allow patients to dig deeper into their problems and gain a greater understanding of their mental health disorder. This discovery allows for more personal growth and provides a stable foundation for long-term progress.
Treatment for Anxiety Disorders & Substance Abuse
For patients who have turned to drugs or alcohol as a means of coping with their anxiety and have consequently developed a substance abuse disorder, we can help with that too. Our dual diagnosis treatment in Boca works with patients to not only manage their anxiety disorder symptoms but also to overcome their dependence on drugs and alcohol.
Stop letting anxiety keep you from living the life you desire or watching your loved one struggle with one of these disorders. The time is now to get help. Contact us today to learn more about our facility and programs. Call us today: 877-360-1639
