Everyone experiences anxiety at some point in their lives. It’s normal to feel anxious in a stressful situation, such as when we’re facing an important deadline or coping with a family crisis. These feelings are usually temporary and go away when circumstances improve. For millions of people, however, anxiety lingers or even worsens to the point where it interferes with their relationships, work, school and more.
Experiencing persistent or overwhelming anxiety, particularly in the absence of a temporary source of stress, may indicate an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders are very common, with an estimated 40 million American adults suffering from them, but sadly, only about a third seek treatment. There’s good news, however — these disorders are highly treatable, often without the need of medications!
The clinicians at Boca Behavioral Health are skilled at helping clients identify what is triggering anxiety and how to find healthy ways to reduce symptoms of anxiety without needing medications.
