Anxiety Disorder Treatment Center
Anxiety means the same as “worried” or “stressed out.” Anxiety is perfectly normal, and it actually is helpful in giving you an extra push of determination to get things done. When people have extreme anxiety, what they experience is far more than average worry or concern. The anxiety is so intense that they are consumed by it, and it distorts their thinking and affects their behavior and relationships. They may become fearful of everyday situations, and can’t function properly. When that sort of situation exists, it is a sign of a possible Anxiety Disorder. There are five kinds of Anxiety Disorder, and we treat them all at Inspire Malibu
The Most Common Anxiety Disorders are:
- Generalized Anxiety Disorder
- Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
- Panic Disorder
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Social Phobia (or Social Anxiety Disorder) Treatment
Inspire Malibu provides proven, effective treatments for anxiety disorders. As with any medical condition, we only begin treatment after we have made a careful diagnostic evaluation. We never simply assume that someone has a particular illness because of their symptoms alone. It takes a true diagnosis to find out what is really going on, and the best way to bring health and healing to those who come to us for comprehensive personal care.
Many people who have Anxiety Disorders also have ongoing issues with alcohol or other mood altering substances. They often use these as a way of dealing with the anxiety. As with depression, the mood they are in is actually increased by the drug they take, and the anxiety increases after only a brief respite.
At Inspire Malibu, we can treat the problems of anxiety, drugs, and alcohol simultaneously. Once the type of anxiety is identified, and a medical history is reviewed, our specialists prescribe the appropriate medications to reduce the anxiety to a normal, acceptable level while providing rewarding and relaxing therapy that sets the mind at ease, and calms the nerves.
People with anxiety disorders who have already received treatment should tell their current doctor about that treatment in detail. If they received medication, they should tell their doctor what medication was used, what the dosage was at the beginning of treatment, whether the dosage was increased or decreased while they were under treatment, what side effects occurred, and whether the treatment helped them become less anxious. If they received psychotherapy, they should describe the type of therapy, how often they attended sessions, and whether the therapy was useful.
You Are Never a Failure at Inspire Malibu
Because you are an individual, and everyone’s personal medical and emotional situation is unique, there is no “one size fits all” treatment for anxiety or addiction. Even if you have tried other treatments or medications in the past and it didn’t seem to work, it may simply be that the medication wasn’t administered correctly, or was not the best one for you.
At Inspire Malibu, no patient is a failure. Each patient is dealing with an illness that requires treatment, and it is the role of Inspire Malibu to work with you and find the treatment approach that works best for you.
