At Avalon Malibu, we encourage clients to embrace their symptoms as a doorway to freedom. The process of healing is one of self-realization, and with anxiety disorders it is essential to peel away the fears that obscure the view of the core self.
Our anxiety treatment is in an ideal treatment location. The Grand House is licensed under the strict rules set forth by The California Department of Social Services (DSS), and certified by the Department of Mental Health (DMH), and The Department of Health Services (DHS), to treat mental disorders such as anxiety.
Anxiety is defined as a feeling of worry, nervousness, or unease, often in regards to an imminent event or uncertainty. While anxiety tends to establish a sense that there is no hope for possible treatment, this is only a false perception created by the disorder. At Avalon Malibu, our professional team works strategically to guide clients to discovering a more fulfilling life free from anxiety disorders. Before we discuss our particular styles of anxiety treatment, we need to define what anxiety and anxiety disorders are.
Anxiety Disorders come in varying designations. A Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is a chronic disorder characterized by excessive, long-lasting anxiety and worry about nonspecific life events, objects, and situations. People who suffer from a generalized anxiety disorder often experience fear to a petrifying level. They constantly worry about their health, money, family, work, or school, and are incapable of finding healthy coping mechanisms.
Those individuals who suffer from anxiety disorders often have difficulty identifying the causes of their anxiety. Their fears are usually unrealistic or blown out of proportion in comparison to the actual circumstances. Sufferers come to expect failure and disastrous results from everything they do. While anxiety is a normal emotion experienced by everyone, those individuals who cannot perform daily functions like work, school, social activities, or relationships may be diagnosed as having an anxiety disorder. In cases where anxiety keeps people from performing normal functions, anxiety treatment can help.
Social anxiety is a fairly popular form of anxiety. Social anxiety includes the fear of embarrassment due to impulsive actions. It is also characterized by the fear of being negatively judged by others. Many know this feeling from circumstances that include stage fright, a fear of intimacy, and/or a fear of humiliation.
This disorder can cause people to avoid public situations and human contact to the point that normal life is impossible. At Avalon Malibu Drug Rehab and Mental Health Treatment Center, we assist our clients in breaking through their old patterns and shedding beliefs that no longer serve them through anxiety treatment. We help our clients by creating a process that will benefit them throughout their life.
Anxiety disorders lead to what are known as anxiety attacks. Anxiety attacks tend to arise quickly out of a response to stress, however they can be crippling to the point of debilitation. They can last anywhere from minutes to hours. Anxiety attacks usually occur after frightening experiences or prolonged stress. An anxiety attack may lead an individual to become hyper-sensitive and aware of changes in normal body function. People who suffer from anxiety attacks may encounter the following signs and symptoms:
Avalon Malibu offers intensive outpatient programs that are certified by the California Department of Healthcare Services. Clients must have completed primary treatment care first in order to enlist in outpatient anxiety treatment programs. Recovery from an anxiety disorder is possible, and a person with an anxiety disorder can return to a fruitful life with the proper treatment. At Avalon Malibu, we are committed to every client’s complete well-being and recovery.
By nature, anxiety prevents us from living in the present, as adrenaline-fueled reactions trap us in responses to past events or transports us with the anticipation of a formidable future. From trauma-associated panic attacks to the paralysis of social phobias, untreated anxiety tends to find footholds in the spirit. At Avalon Malibu, our clinical anxiety treatment program specializes in treating the deep, underlying causes of anxiety through awareness, observation, challenge and experience.
By using clinically proven techniques in our anxiety treatment program we facilitate lasting change and purposed action, and our dedicated therapists work with clients to transform long-standing emotional responses into automatic reactions of peace and serenity. In our anxiety treatment program, clients learn to exit patterns of cyclical worrying, trading feelings of helplessness for empowerment and positivity.
Employing principles of non-judgment and acceptance, Avalon Malibu allows clients to harness the power of the present using attention and curiosity. Clients at Avalon Malibu learn to let go of fear-based thoughts as they practice intentional – rather than reactive – inner monologues and focused achievement.
As a result, our dynamic mindfulness program combats anxiety responses such as “brain fog,” panic attacks, catastrophizing, and learned helplessness and stress, transforming them into therapeutic meditation, improved clarity, increased calmness, and heightened effectiveness in daily living.
At Avalon Malibu, we have created a revolutionary interdisciplinary approach to healing anxiety disorders, integrating neurofeedback, cognitive-behavioral, experiential, somatic and mindfulness therapies. Every client receives custom-tailored treatment and planning, replete with ongoing review and sustained aftercare. Come see what the best mental health care center in America can offer you.
