Anxiety

Anxiety is often defined by feelings of worry, fear, agitation, or dread. It is usually future-oriented, meaning that our anxieties are pointed toward possible threats or contradictory experiences that haven't yet happened.

Extreme anxiety can be crippling to a limit where we can't judge, we don't take action, or we mess up when the situation finally comes. 

Anxiety Symptoms- what to look out?

Types of Anxiety Disorder 

  1. Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) - Extreme worrying and tension most of the time without a reason.
  2. Social Anxiety - It is the most common anxiety disorder creating an overwhelming fear in daily social situations. 
  3. Panic Disorders - Intense anxiety and worries cause unexpected panic or anxiety attacks.
  4. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders - Act of consistent or obsessive habits often associated with beliefs or fears that are also considered to be repetitive.
  5. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) - Produced by a traumatic experience that gives a lasting memory of the event.

All of these are related to normal anxiety, except that the level of anxiety increases to the point where constant worry and fear becomes overwhelming.

Having an anxiety disorder can be a very terrifying reality. You may have a very big problem if you are encountering them regularly to the point where they:

  • Hinder with your work
  • Disrupt your relationship and responsibilities 
  • Cause delay in everyday activities
  • And grow overwhelming.

Anxiety Treatment

You must help yourself in learning to recognize anxiety, deal with self-defeating behaviours and thoughts, develop coping strategies. All of these can be achieved with the guidance of a trusted mental health professional. 

 You can opt for the following kinds of anxiety treatment as related below- 

  • Medication: medication is available to treat anxiety disorders, including benzodiazepine tablets. Yet, these should be admitted with caution and for the more critical cases as they generally have side effects that are not pleasant or good either.

Many of the antidepressant medication is used to treat anxiety. Medication, when combined with cognitive/behavioural or psychotherapy, is deemed best practice today.

  • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy: This procedure helps deal with worrying thoughts and feelings that result from distressing thoughts. It also explains techniques to reduce or overcome maladaptive habits. The aim of CBT in treating anxiety is to train the individual to uncover patterns of behaviour of thinking and then to confront them. In so doing, the person is required to identify the source of their anxiety, master to adjust their thinking and behaviour patterns through anxiety treatment/ anxiety management therapy and follow them regularly.

Overcoming an addiction to alcohol can be a long and bumpy road. If you are willing to get the support you need and ready to stop drinking you can recover from alcoholism no matter how bad the addiction is or how powerless you feel. Most people with alcohol problems do not decide to make a big change out of the blue or transform their drinking habits overnight. However, once you have made the decision to change, the next step is to seek help as some people can stop drinking on their own while others need medical supervision in order to withdraw from alcohol safely and comfortably.

There’s no magic bullet or single treatment that works for everyone. Everyone’s needs are different, so it’s important that you find a program that is right for you. Alcohol addiction treatment program should be customized to your unique problems and situation.
