Generalized Anxiety

When treating Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), Solara Health utilizes several therapeutic modalities simultaneously, creating a treatment program that is both individualized and comprehensive. By using individual psychotherapy, group therapy, and holistic therapies, our clinicians can help clients on a variety of levels, including helping clients explore the source of their anxiety and its symptoms (both emotional and physical), learn how to disrupt negative thought patterns, practice techniques to re-direct negative thoughts into positive ones, and take control of triggers and other stressors. The results of these practices are increased confidence and a greater feeling of control, security, and peace in day-to-day life.

Our immersive [timeframe] program means that clients can receive more focused, specialized treatment without the distractions of everyday life to hinder progress. As a result of working with our compassionate clinicians, clients at Solara find that they see rapid personal improvement in a short space of time, and that they leave our program better equipped to face their anxieties, find their inner sense of calm, and take control of their own lives.

Symptoms and Treatment

It is estimated that 3.1% of the population is affected by GAD, making it one of the most prevalent mental health disorders in the world. Although GAD is characterized by a general sense of stress and worry, specific symptoms vary, including (but not limited to) the following:

  • Chronic and/or disproportionate worry
  • Continual sense of apprehension
  • Inability to relax
  • Difficulty or inability to make decisions
  • Disruptive, negative thoughts that create anxiety
  • Avoiding situations that cause anxiety
  • Physical symptoms, such as fatigue, sweating, shakiness, muscle aches, nausea, and headaches

In GAD, these symptoms are not necessarily tied to a particular event or situation; rather, they are open, unrestricted, broad anxieties that seem relentless. As a result, clients with GAD can feel inhibited in their ability to fully go about their day-to-day lives. If left unchecked, GAD can result in inhibited professional and social growth, damaging physical effects, loneliness, negative self-image, emotional distress, and a sense of losing control of one’s own life.

Solara Health seeks to free you from both the symptoms of GAD and its more severe consequences. In our comfortable, peaceful setting, clients can work with our expert, compassionate clinicians to develop methods for addressing their specific GAD—its sources, its symptoms, and its consequences. We also communicate with your outpatient care providers to generate an individualized, complete aftercare plan so you can continue to make great strides as you go about your day-to-day life—one that now feels secure and calm, and that you are ready to face head-on.

While our clients make considerable and rapid improvements, Generalized Anxiety Disorder is often a long-term condition. Understanding this through years of experience, Solara Health provides the entire spectrum of care from in-residence to outpatient to transitional living to continuing, customized case management of long-term aftercare planning to ensure maximum, long-term success.  Solara Health is committed and dedicated to freeing our clients from the clutches of Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and each of our programs is created to ensure this.

What Our Clients Say


I have never felt better than I do now, since completing your program. The truly caring and supportive staff and the intensive program changed my life. What a neat place to stay for treatment - I love Pacific Beach! I have learned skills and behavior to move forward with my life thanks to you.

R.M. – Father

If not for Solara Mental Health, I am almost positive that our daughter would not be as advanced in her treatment, and would not have the almost miraculous confident and positive outlook that she has.

Michelle Family

I want to thank you and the entire staff and support system at Solara for taking such good care of my sister. On behalf of my entire family, we want you all to understand that your patience and kindness stretches further than you can see… Thank you, again and again, from the bottom of my heart.


We are so grateful to you for the treatment and care you provided our daughter. She is doing unbelievably well now thanks to your program. We will gladly tell anyone we encounter that needs treatment about the wonderful work you do at Solara.

M.P. – Father

Your program provided our daughter with the most masterful therapist we have ever encountered (and we have used many).  She has had an unbelievable ability to see the long-term trajectory of our daughter’s treatment and to approach her treatment in stages that fit where my daughter’s development was.  We can’t say enough positive about her.

Watson Family

Solara’s program was such a positive experience for our mom (and for us)! She had become almost impossible to deal with. Your entire staff was phenomenally supportive and kind and patient with her. We feel like we’ve got our mom back, now.


The program has given me the tools I needed to really gain stability. For the first time in years - maybe for as long as I can remember, actually, I’m learning how to cope and manage my stressors and triggers. I now believe that I can find some relief and happiness.


Solara was truly a life-changing experience for me and for our children, because of what you did for my wife! The treatment team was phenomenally supportive and perfect for helping her with her anxiety and depression. We are all now moving forward to put our lives back together and it started with you all in Pacific Beach. Thank you for what you do.


Even though I’m not religious, I realized when I got sober that for the first time in my life I wanted to explore my spiritual side. I benefited hugely from the individual spiritual sessions that I had with Chris. I’m really grateful for that aspect of the whole treatment experience.


The Solara Treatment Program was a life-changing experience for me. To be able to heal in such a beautiful, peaceful environment, with such a terrific treatment team, was so amazingly positive. I have found my true self, again. I thank you and my family thanks you for helping me become the person I was meant to be.


The therapists and counselors and really whole team were extremely beneficial to me and my understanding of my issues. The treatment plan they developed was exactly what I needed


The Solara program is truly amazing. I’ve never had more clarity or more good energy in my entire life. The attention the physicians and the therapists gave me was outstanding. I feel like they truly understood and addressed my issues, which had consumed my life for years. Thank you all.
