Learn About Anxiety Disorder Treatment

Treatment for anxiety disorders at Haverhill Pavilion in Haverhill, MA

Anxiety disorders are a category of mental illness that cause immense distress in every aspect of a person’s life. The worry, fear, and apprehension that define anxiety disorders can prevent people from enjoying the everyday things that others enjoy. The symptoms can cause these individuals to refrain from participating in activities, meeting new people, traveling, or working in a career that they would otherwise thrive in. Ultimately, anxiety disorders can deny people the ability to live the highest quality of life.

Suffering from an anxiety disorder can leave you feeling helpless, but it is important to know that you can heal. The symptoms of anxiety disorders do not have to define your life. When you receive effective care, you can learn how to manage your symptoms and overcome the distress you face each day.

At Haverhill Pavilion, we recognize how devastating anxiety disorder symptoms can be. For that reason, we offer comprehensive treatment that is tailored to your needs. Our safe and supportive environment gives you the space and encouragement you need to start working toward healing. We offer separate inpatient units for adults ages 19-49 and older adults age 50 and above.

Why Consider Treatment at Haverhill Pavilion

Benefits of getting anxiety disorder treatment at Haverhill Pavilion in Haverhill, MA

Refusing to get treatment when you are suffering from an anxiety disorder can have an extremely negative impact on your life, and on the lives of those around you. Untreated anxiety disorders have the potential to cause harm to both your physical and psychological health. They can also lead you to experiment with using drugs or alcohol as a means of alleviating your distressing symptoms. You may find that your worries, fears, and apprehensions prevent you from performing well in your career, maintaining healthy relationships, and experiencing things that you believe you would enjoy.

Additionally, the symptoms of anxiety disorders can become so severe that you are left feeling as though there is no way you could ever heal. This sense of hopelessness can lead to self-harming behaviors and thoughts of suicide. As symptoms escalate, your ability to cope can diminish. It is a harmful cycle that can seem impossible to break out of.

By choosing to receive anxiety disorder treatment, however, you are allowing yourself the chance to have a new life. With the help of experienced professionals and exemplary clinical programming, you can learn how to manage your symptoms and overcome your anxiety.

There is no need to continue to struggle. Let our team at Haverhill Pavilion in Haverhill, Massachusetts, help you put an end to your suffering and support you as you take back control of your life.

Continuing Care After Inpatient Treatment for Anxiety Disorders

Continuing care options for anxiety disorder treatment

The treatment you receive at our anxiety disorder treatment center is designed to be short-term. It is our goal to help you manage crises, stabilize from acute symptoms, and start an appropriate treatment regimen. Because care in our inpatient anxiety disorder treatment center lasts for such a short amount of time, we stress the importance of developing a comprehensive continuing care plan.

The symptoms of anxiety disorders do not simply disappear. These mental health concerns will likely need to be managed throughout the rest of your or your loved one’s life. Fortunately, by having an ongoing treatment plan in place, you can manage your symptoms and alleviate your distress.

The first step after completing inpatient anxiety disorder treatment is often to transition to a lower level of care. There are a number of options available, including partial hospitalization programming, intensive outpatient programming, and traditional outpatient treatment. At Haverhill Pavilion, we do not currently offer these lower levels of care, but if this is something that aligns with your needs, your treatment team will work closely with you to identify appropriate referrals to trusted providers in your area. Every aspect of your discharge plan and the details of your continuing care plan are based on what will be most helpful to you.

For more information about any aspect of anxiety disorder treatment at Haverhill Pavilion, please contact us at your earliest convenience. Our team of compassionate professionals is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week and would be happy to assist you as you make this important decision for yourself or a loved one.
