A type of anxiety disorder, panic disorder is characterized by recurring bouts of intense fear known as panic attacks. Panic attacks are scary, extremely physical experiences that manifest themselves in a variety of symptoms, including nausea, dizziness, shortness of breath, racing heart, shaking or trembling, and numbness. These physical panic attacks can have extreme mental, emotional, and practical consequences, including constant anxiety about having a panic attack. Changes in behavior to avoid panic attacks can development into agoraphobia, loneliness, and isolation.
At our Mental Health Treatment Center we understand that panic episodes can be triggered by any number of events. Sometimes it can seem like they aren’t triggered by anything at all. We also understand that panic disorder is often connected to other mental health disorders, such as depression, social anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder or by significant or stressful life changes.
As such, our psychiatric center’s clinicians provide highly individualized treatment for each client, working at a pace and in a method that feels safe and secure while still fostering progress. Our small-group sessions also allow clients to practice methods for managing their symptoms in an environment that is safe and judgment-free, helping clients to build the confidence that they can carry with them in their day-to-day lives.
While our clients make considerable and rapid improvements, panic disorder is often a long-term condition. Through years of experience, our mental health treatment center has learned how to provides the entire spectrum of care for our clients. From inpatient to outpatient, from transitional living to a long-term aftercare plan, our program has been designed to free our clients from the clutches of panic disorder.
