Outpatient Anxiety Treatment
Anxiety disorders are becoming more and more prevalent, affecting 40 million adults in the US or about 18% of the adult population. Anxiety is a debilitating disorder that can quickly affect every area of your life – from socializing with friends, performing at your job, or even just going about your daily routine. Fortunately, there are anxiety disorder treatments which allow individuals to regain control of their lives. Our anxiety treatment program in Delray Beach, South Florida is led by Dr. Rodriguez who has helped countless individuals overcome crippling anxiety. The first step is contacting us to making an appointment for an assessment and consultation with Dr. Rodriguez. From that evaluation, Dr. Rodriguez can suggest a custom treatment plan based on your specific needs and symptoms. Treatment will include personal care from Dr. Rodriguez, a variety of group and/or individual therapy, and healthy lifestyle classes to give our patients the highest chance of living an anxiety-free life.
How Anxiety Disorders Impact Life
Anxiety can prevent you from living a fulfilling life due to the psychological fear and suffocation that is common with this condition. Individuals suffering from Generalized Anxiety Disorder struggle in almost every facet of their daily life with overwhelming symptoms of anxiety. Social Anxiety Disorder can prevent you from seeing your true potential for professional growth. Severe panic attacks can feel like imminent death when you suffer from panic disorder. And flashbacks, intrusive thoughts, and nightmares can be overwhelming to an individual suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Often times individuals may ultimately decide to seclude themselves due to their irrational yet unavoidable “fear of fear” that has built up after years of suffering. Anxiety disorder can make you feel alone, frustrated, and depressed – in fact, nearly half of individuals with an anxiety disorder also suffer from depression.
You may be have an anxiety disorder if you experience the following symptoms:
- An overwhelming sense of panic
- Racing heart
- Rapid thoughts
- General feelings of fear
- Sleep problems
- Trouble breathing
- Chest pains
- Avoidance of people and situations
This list is not conclusive and you may experience other symptoms of anxiety as well. It is always best to have an expertly trained doctor to evaluate your individual symptoms because there is a wide variety of anxiety disorders. At our program, Dr. Rodriguez performs initial assessments that take into account all of your symptoms, personal details, and medical history, and then provides suggestions for your custom treatment plan.
