Anxiety Treatment at Promises

Anxiety can feel like it has an unbreakable hold on your life. We want you to know that life can be better. Our mental health experts will help you manage anxiety and co-occurring disorders. You’ll develop more effective coping skills and self-confidence. We’ll help you begin living the life you’ve always wanted.

Some Promises locations treat anxiety as a primary diagnosis (without substance abuse). Others offer inpatient anxiety treatment when anxiety goes along with substance abuse treatment.

What’s Inpatient Anxiety Treatment Like?

A typical day at Promises is different for everyone. Your treatment plan will be tailored to your needs and preferences. Some core components usually include:

Assessing Your Physical and Mental Health

Diagnosis and treatment begin with a comprehensive assessment that guides your treatment plan. Assessments also help confirm or revise any previous diagnoses. They help us understand your most pressing issues. For example, many people enter treatment for drug or alcohol abuse and discover they also have anxiety, major depression or other mental health disorders. Our assessments also take into account family histories of mental illness and other medical conditions you may have.

Detoxing From Substance Abuse

Promises’ treatment options include medical detox. If you’re struggling with substance abuse and anxiety, you may need drug or alcohol detox. Our medical team will help you safely remove substances from your body. Our nurses monitor you around the clock and attend to any discomfort. Without uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms, you’ll be better able to focus on anxiety treatment.

Expert Psychiatric Care

You’ll meet with Promises’ psychiatric team to monitor your mental health symptoms. We’ll educate you about any anxiety medications and adjust dosage as needed. Depending on your needs and any co-occurring disorders, types of medications may include:

  • Anti-anxiety medication
  • Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)
  • Serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRI)
  • Tricyclic antidepressants (especially in the case of co-occurring anxiety and depressive disorders)

Wide Range of Therapies

Inpatient anxiety treatment includes traditional and alternative therapies for treating anxiety. Depending on the Promises location, treatment options may include:

Dual Diagnosis Treatment

Research shows that anxiety disorders like generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) commonly co-occur with other behavioral health issues. If you have co-occurring disorders, we’ll diagnose and treat these along with your anxiety. Past trauma can contribute to anxiety, depression and other behavioral health issues. We use traditional and alternative approaches as well as trauma therapies to get to the root causes of your conditions. Promises’ mental health professionals treat the range of behavioral health issues, including:

Home-Like Environment

In contrast to hospital medical centers that may feel stark and bleak, Promises Treatment Centers are warm and welcoming. You’ll enjoy comfortable furnishings and pleasing decor. En suite bathrooms and private bedrooms are available. Plenty of gathering areas and well-balanced meals invite community with fellow clients.

Support After Treatment

There’s still work to do after you leave residential anxiety treatment. At Promises, we make sure you continue improving by creating a thorough aftercare plan. We’ll connect you with mental health professionals who specialize in anxiety. We’ll also help you find support groups and addiction recovery resources.

Treating Anxiety Disorders and Co-Occurring Disorders

Anxiety disorders often occur along with alcohol or drug abuse. People suffering from unmanageable emotions sometimes turn to drugs or alcohol to cope. Each condition worsens the other. Anxiety can lead to more substance abuse. Likewise, drugs and alcohol can cause brain changes that contribute to anxiety symptoms.

Mental illness like depression also co-occur with anxiety. Some research shows more than 50% of people with anxiety also struggle with depression. Co-occurring anxiety and depressive symptoms are especially common in people with:

Eating disorders are also common co-occurring disorders in people with anxiety symptoms. One study found 65% of women participants with bulimia or anorexia also met diagnostic criteria for at least one type of anxiety disorder. Over 70% had the anxiety disorder before developing an eating disorder.

Does Insurance Cover Treatment?

Many insurance plans have a behavioral health component that covers drug treatment and mental health care in the same way it covers other illnesses. This means that diagnosis and treatment of anxiety could be covered at all or a large portion of the cost. Some insurances require you to meet a deductible before benefits begin covering mental illness or substance abuse treatment. Other times, drug rehab insurance benefits begin immediately.
