Understanding Anxiety

Anxiety is a normal emotion that everyone experiences to a certain extent. It can be triggered by stress, fear, or anticipation of something unpleasant. However, for some people, these feelings of nervousness, worry, and unease don’t go away and become so strong that they interfere with their daily lives.

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health disorder in the United States and include:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Social anxiety disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)

Unfortunately, these conditions often occur alongside substance use disorders and process addictions, such as alcohol and drug abuse, gambling, or sex addiction.

The Link Between Anxiety and Addiction

People who struggle with an anxiety disorder may turn to drugs, alcohol, or addictive behaviors to try to numb their feelings or cope with distress. It’s important to recognize that substance abuse only masks the underlying issues, creating a vicious cycle of addiction and mental health conditions.

Those who live with addiction are also more prone to develop mental health disorders, such as anxiety. Studies have shown that long-term substance abuse can lead to changes in the brain that cause anxiety and other mood disorders.

Common Evidence-Based Anxiety Therapies

Treating anxiety and addiction simultaneously can help people learn how to effectively manage their symptoms and create a healthier, more productive life. At Perennial Recovery, our evidence-based therapies deliver safe, effective treatment for both addiction and any underlying mental health condition.

Our licensed therapists provide individualized care plans that may include:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Solution-focused therapy
  • Person-centered therapy
  • Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT)

Depending on individual circumstances, our team may also use other modalities, such as anger management tactics or trauma-informed therapies.

Our Addiction and Anxiety Treatment Programs

After an initial evaluation with our team, each client receives a personalized treatment plan that meets their unique needs. Our co-occurring mental health program for anxiety and addiction is available in multiple levels of care:

The PHP runs several hours a day, Monday through Friday. This program includes individual and group therapy, life skills coaching, education classes, relapse prevention planning, and more.

The IOP provides flexible support to individuals who need more help than an outpatient program provides. This program runs several days a week and involves evidence-based therapies.
