Worrying is a normal part of life. Most of us might worry that we left the stove on after going on a trip, or be concerned about a pet’s health as they get older. But if you have an anxiety disorder, you may find yourself overwhelmed by a sense of worry, panic or dread on a regular basis. Unlike the normal anxiety that we all experience from time to time, these feelings arise in response to normal situations and are excessive, persistent and disruptive to daily life; with an anxiety disorder, it can be difficult to function or accomplish your goals.
At Achieve Medical Center, we know the toll that anxiety disorders can have on your mental wellness. Our team of psychiatrists and expert clinicians can help you overcome the effects of anxiety and take back control of your life with comprehensive treatment plans tailored to your needs. We recognize that each patient is unique and therefore utilize a diverse array of diagnostic tools to ensure a complete and well-rounded therapeutic approach tailored for you.

How Are the Symptoms of Anxiety Treated?
Psychotherapy is often the cornerstone of anxiety disorder treatment, which includes techniques like talk therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy. This approach can help identify harmful thoughts or beliefs that may contribute to feelings of anxiety and make it easier to recognize the onset of symptoms. Psychotherapy is often used in combination with anti-anxiety medications, which can alleviate sudden or chronic symptoms and allow patients to calm down so they can process their emotions.
Other techniques such as neurofeedback, nutrition therapy and medication management may also be used for a well-rounded approach to treating anxiety disorders. Holistic modalities like yoga, meditation and mindfulness can also be used to complement your treatment plan.
What is the Best Treatment for Anxiety?
