“Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game.” – BABE RUTH
It’s perfectly normal to feel nervous or anxious. Anxiety is actually the body’s natural response to fear and danger. Therefore, in moderation, anxiety can help you stay focused, spur you to action, even motivate you to solve problems; but when your anxiety is constant or overwhelming, when it interferes with your relationships and activities, when you start having persistent, excessive and unrealistic worries about everyday tasks and events, there’s a distinct possibility you’ve crossed into the territory of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). At Resilience Treatment Center, our Los Angeles-based team of experienced clinicians offers a comprehensive, integrative and tailored treatment program to address the underlying causes of your anxiety disorder in a luxurious residential setting.
More About Anxiety…
For anyone experiencing an anxiety disorder, it is important to note that what you’re going through is not uncommon. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, an estimated 6.8 million adults in the United States suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Moreover, the onset of an Anxiety Disorder often develops slowly and reaches its highest levels of intensity during periods of increased environmental stress. On a clinical or a treatment level, a diagnosis of Generalized Anxiety Disorder means a sustained period of 6 months with excessive worries about various everyday problems. However, Generalized Anxiety Disorder can manifest itself in many ways, even including including physical symptoms. Those struggling with Anxiety can experience a range of emotional, behavioral and physical symptoms that may include the inability to avoid intrusive thoughts, the inability to relax and feelings of tenseness, muscle aches and even stomach problems. Fortunately, with the right treatment plan, Generalized Anxiety Disorder is manageable and need not dictate your daily life.
While many regions around the nation offer limited resources when it comes to such extensive and even high-end mental health recovery services, such isn’t the case for those living here in Los Angeles, or even Southern California in general for that matter. However, when looking at Anxiety Disorders from the perspective of trying to attain long-term success in recovery, even Los Angeles has its limitations, unfortunately. In fact, whereas many recovery centers may offer an “either/or” scenario, that being the all-too-common choice of choosing luxury and amenities OR true clinical expertise, Resilience Treatment Center is thankfully able to successfully achieve both objectives!
How is Anxiety Treated:
There is no singular way to treat Generalized Anxiety Disorder, however effective treatment plans often include the blending and integration of several approaches, all of which being dependent on the specific needs and level of severity the patient faces. According to the Mayo clinic, the most beneficial treatment options for Generalized Anxiety Disorder include some combination of psychotherapy and the use of the appropriate medications. Ultimately, anxiety treatment is designed to help you develop tools for cognitive and behavioral control strategies, while also encouraging and facilitating meaningful lifestyle changes.
There is absolutely no question that staff expertise, training and passion & commitment play an enormous role when it comes to healthcare success, and even more so with respect to behavioral health. With this reality in mind, we have strategically built our Los Angeles based treatment team upon a vast foundation that is able to address the core of the patient’s mental health needs. From our medical director, Eric Wexler, MD, PhD, to the entire clinical support services and therapy teams, the level of care provided, of which includes both residential and outpatient components, is such that we strive to achieve a quality of steadfast recovery that exceeds industry standards!
