How We Treat Anxiety

We treat anxiety from a whole-person approach that considers the physical, emotional and spiritual deficits caused by the disorder. Diagnosis and treatment of anxiety disorders begin with thorough assessments. This helps us tailor your treatment plan to your specific needs and preferences.

The Ranch mental health professionals:

  • Determine your type of anxiety problem (ie., generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, etc.).
  • Assess your physical and psychological health.
  • Determine if there are co-occurring disorders like substance abuse.
  • Assess other underlying issues like trauma.

These initial assessments guide your treatment plan, which may include:

One-On-One Counseling

Treatment of anxiety disorders includes individual counseling. The Ranch therapists are trained in treatment approaches like cognitive behavioral therapy that help you better manage anxiety and stress. They’ll help you address underlying issues that cause anxiety symptoms. These may include past trauma, unhealthy relationships in early life, and low distress tolerance. You’ll build a trusting relationship with your counselor. Individual therapy sessions provide a safe space to discuss topics you’re not comfortable sharing in group yet. You can also delve deeper into your specific issues.

Group Therapy With Other Clients

Some clients feel uneasy about group therapy at first but often find it to be one of the most rewarding experiences of inpatient rehab. We provide several small therapy groups daily. You’ll hear from peers struggling with anxiety and related disorders. Sharing with others helps you build confidence and learn the value in open, honest connections. A mental health professional leads each group. They’ll guide you and your peers through topics relevant to what you’re going through.

Appointments With Our Psychiatric Team

An imbalance in brain chemicals can contribute to anxiety, depression and other mental health issues. Pharmacotherapy for anxiety is sometimes necessary to correct this imbalance and help manage anxiety symptoms. Patients with anxiety will meet with The Ranch psychiatric staff to determine if anti-anxiety medications can be useful.

Types of anti-anxiety medications may include:

  • Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs)Research shows MAOIs are particularly useful for treating co-occurring anxiety and depressive disorders.
  • Serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) – Clinical trials  show that SNRIs are effective in managing long-term psychiatric conditions like anxiety disorders.
  • Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRIs) – These drugs are most commonly prescribed to treat major depression. Recent research reviews shows their effectiveness in treating anxiety disorders like obsessive compulsive disorder, social phobia, panic disorder and PTSD as well.
  • Tricyclic antidepressants – Though SSRIs are generally the preferred antidepressant to treat anxiety, tricyclic antidepressants are also an effective treatment option in some cases.

Attention to Co-Occurring Disorders

People with psychiatric disorders are at increased risk for issues like substance abuse. If you have one mental health condition, you’re also at risk for other psychiatric disorders. The Ranch provides comprehensive treatment for the range of mental health issues our clients experience. We’ll assess you for co-occurring disorders that may complicate recovery, and create a treatment plan that tackles those issues.

Our mental health professionals are trained to treat conditions like:

  • Substance abuse
  • Anxiety and panic disorders
  • Mood disorders like major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder
  • Co-occurring anxiety and depressive disorder
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Eating disorders
  • Intimacy disorders
  • PTSD

Support for Your Family Members

Mental health disorders like anxiety impact the entire family. Treatment of anxiety includes family therapy as appropriate. The Ranch also offers family days and family programs. Loved ones learn how to support you as you recover from your behavioral health issues. You’ll address difficult topics with the help of a mental health professional. You and your loved ones will learn to communicate better and move forward with supportive relationships.
