Signs of Anxiety

Situational anxiety, such as before a first date or a job interview, is completely normal. However, anxiety becomes a problem when it starts to crop up for seemingly no reason, making it difficult to enjoy your daily life. You’re likely struggling with an anxiety disorder if you’re experiencing regular anxiety symptoms, including:

  • An intense feeling of worry or dread that seemingly is not connected to outside events
  • A preoccupation with worry that makes it difficult to focus on everyday tasks
  • Physical symptoms such as a racing heart, shortness of breath, stomach upset, sweating, and insomnia
  • An inability to participate in things you typically enjoy, such as socializing or leaving the house, due to feelings of worry

If you’re struggling with anxiety, recovery is possible, and we’re here to help you get there. You don’t need to tackle this alone. Asking for help can be hard, but it’s the first step to getting your life back.

Asking For Help

If you’ve talked to family members or friends about your anxiety and they don’t seem to understand, you’re not alone. It can be challenging for people who have never dealt with anxiety to know what you’re going through. It’s not as easy as taking deep breaths or trying to calm down. When you seek professional treatment at Recovery Ranch TN, we understand that your anxiety is a serious mental health concern, and we’re here to help. Admitting that you can’t handle your anxiety on your own is the first step to getting your life back.

Dual Diagnosis Treatment Options

At times, people use substances to control their anxiety. Whether you’re self-medicating with alcohol or have begun to lose control of your prescription pill use, there is hope. At Recovery Ranch TN, we provide dual diagnosis treatment if your anxiety has co-occurred with substance abuse. We understand that the two disorders interact and feed off of each other, so we take a comprehensive approach to treatment. With our dual diagnosis program, you may receive treatment for a range of substance use disorders, including:

  • Alcohol addiction
  • Benzo addiction
  • Cocaine addiction
  • Meth addiction
  • Opioid addiction
  • Polysubstance abuse

You don’t have to deal with addiction and anxiety alone. There is help and hope at Recovery Ranch TN.
