Corner Canyon Health Centers understands that anxiety is a subjective experience for each individual. Often, people don’t realize that anxiety can be treated with inpatient care and a personalized plan to overcome this mental health obstacle. Additionally, anxiety may exist with depression or vice versa. These conditions may exist alone or together, either situationally or biologically, or in combination with drugs and alcohol. Substance abuse often causes co-occurring illnesses such as depression and anxiety that require dual-diagnosis treatment. These substances block the normal production of healthy brain chemicals like serotonin and dopamine, which can cause serious mental health issues. No matter the root of your anxiety, Corner Canyon professionals are on standby to assist you and your recovery.
Experiencing anxiety is a normal part of life. However, for some individuals, anxiety can exceed what they can handle from time to time. Individuals may experience anxiety disorders where they have intense worry and fear of frequent everyday situations. Usually, these individuals will experience repeated panic attacks that disallows them to accomplish everyday tasks.
The causes of why an individual experiences chronic anxiety aren’t fully understood. Typically, anxiety has been linked to traumatic life experiences. When certain life experiences happen, the brain triggers specific reactions that cause a person to be anxious. Additionally, anxiety can be linked to other medical causes such as heart disease, diabetes, thyroid issues, respiratory disorders, and mental illness.
Anxiety in an individual may also be linked by external factors such as alcohol or drugs. These are considered co-occurring illnesses because they often exist alongside addictions and are caused by similar mental and emotional issues. When individuals suffer from both addiction and mental illness, there are treatment programs that can handle both simultaneously. Sometimes people are living with just mental illness though, and their mental health can be severely impaired without the presence of addictions. When this is the case, there are treatment programs designed specifically for them.
-Irritability or irrational anger
-Fear of social situations
-Avoidance of tasks that may trigger anxiety
Anxiety can be triggered by a variety of causes. What triggers the anxiety in an individual can be classified by the type of anxiety disorder they have:
This is when the individual fears to go to places or emerge themselves in situations where they might feel trapped or hopeless.
This is when an individual has anxiety that is linked by a physical health problem.
This is caused by persistent worry about events or activities.
This anxiety disorder includes intense feelings of fear or terror that reach a peak within minutes. This results in a panic attack which includes shortness of breath, intense heart rate, and shortness of breath.
This disorder begins in childhood development with the consistent difficulty to speak in certain situations. This can affect individuals in school, work, and/or social activities.
This is a childhood disorder with the fear of a child separating from a parent(s) or individuals who have parental roles in the child’s life.
This type of anxiety disorder persists in a person’s life when they have a fear of social situations. They may fear being embarrassed, judged, or self-conscience about themselves.
This type of disorder occurs when an individual is introduced to a specific object or situation that triggers anxiety or a panic attack.
This anxiety disorder occurs when an individual misuses drugs or medications that impose intense anxiety or panic.
If anxiety persists in a person’s life, taking no action may lead that individual to have additional mental health and substance abuse issues later in life.
