Anxiety Treatment

Anxiety disorder treatment is at the forefront of care for those suffering from any number of anxiety disorders. At Northpoint Recovery Omaha, we believe that full treatment and recovery can be achieved through a comprehensive, holistic approach that focuses on the mind, body, and spirit. 

Some people with anxiety try to find relief through substance use, which can quickly evolve into an addiction. However, dual diagnosis treatment programs in Omaha, Nebraska, can help. Northpoint Omaha offers an anxiety treatment program as well as substance use disorder treatment, both of which consist of various therapeutic modalities and treatment options.

What is an Anxiety Disorder?

There are many anxiety disorders, and each one is characterized by different signs and symptoms. While occasional anxiety is an expected part of life, for some people, it can become an overwhelming, crippling problem that doesn’t go away on its own. 

Some types of anxiety disorders include:

  • Panic disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorders
  • Phobia-related disorders
  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Selective mutism
  • Separation anxiety disorder
  • Social anxiety disorder

In fact, an anxiety treatment program can help patients regain control of their lives and take that control away from their anxiety.

Symptoms of Anxiety Disorders

An anxiety disorder can present various symptoms that are different for each patient. However, there are some that are more common than others. Some of the symptoms that proper anxiety treatment may relieve include:
