Treating an Anxiety Disorder

The first step to treating an anxiety disorder is to find help. We understand that everyone is different, which is why we offer specialized treatment to all of our patients. This ensures that individuals who come to us in search of help are assisted in the best way possible. Different ways we may help treat your anxiety include:

Private Anxiety Treatment

Each of the Highland Springs private clinics follows a mind/body/spirit perspective in our treatment protocol where we actively involve the client throughout the entire course of counseling for anxiety disorder. The anxiety treatment protocol is highly interactive, so communication between a client and their therapist, as well as some homework, is required in between counseling sessions.

The therapists at our anxiety treatment centers administer a treatment combination of medication, psychotherapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy for people with anxiety disorders. This consists of meditation, relaxation therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy. Counseling at Highland Springs is highly effective as a result of incorporating all three practices.

EMDR Therapy for Anxiety Treatment

EMDR is a form of psychotherapy that has been proven to be highly effective for a variety of anxiety disorders. Our anxiety treatment specialists therapists have found success in applying EMDR Therapy to the treatment protocol for anxiety counseling.  A therapist guides their client with a bar of light that pulses based on the client’s own rapid, rhythmic eye movement.  This has been shown to help clients uncover and process past traumatic events, so they can begin the treatment process.

Avoiding Substance Use

A dependency on substances can be dangerous as it can greatly harm a person’s physical, mental, and emotional health. An individual’s surroundings, psychological well being, and anxiety levels are major factors in causing a dependency, and will often worsen the state of these areas. Many people are able to recognize that they suffer from this condition but struggle to stop, as it is a difficult challenge to overcome. It is a condition that can affect anyone and no one should feel ashamed or embarrassed to have. Highland Springs is here to help heal as we believe that no one should have to go through it alone.
