The feeling of anxiety is something that everyone experiences to some extent. This is normal and natural, as that feeling is crucial to the body’s drive to survive. The heightened awareness of anxiety-related threats has helped humanity escape risky or dangerous situations since the dawn of history. However, this feeling is not sustainable, as it causes a person to undergo tremendous physical, mental, and emotional stress. When someone struggles with an anxiety disorder, they may experience anxiety despite the lack of a tangible threat. The fear and pain this anxiety disorder causes make it difficult to live a normal life.
When someone suffers from anxiety and a substance use disorder simultaneously, it is called a dual diagnosis. Cases like this require dual diagnosis treatment to address anxiety and substance use disorder simultaneously. Leaving one disorder untreated may cause a recurrence of the other. If you or someone you care about needs treatment immediately, you can contact Genesis Recovery and Wellness (GROW) in Fairlawn and Middleburg Heights, Ohio. We have designed our anxiety treatment and dual diagnosis treatment programs to help you work through your recovery and develop healthier coping mechanisms. Call us at 216.331.2998 today.
What Is an Anxiety Disorder?
The term “anxiety disorder” refers to several different but related disorders. These disorders may cause a person to experience anxiety, fear, and worry nearly constantly. In general, to be diagnosed with an anxiety disorder, the fear or anxiety must be out of proportion to the reality of the situation. It must affect a person’s ability to function normally. Some of the more common symptoms of different anxiety disorders include:
- Excessive worry
- Difficulty concentrating
- Stomach pain
- High heart rate
These types of disorders affect millions of Americans. They are not the result of any personal failing or character flaw but rather are theorized to be the result of several developmental, environmental, and hereditary factors. Anxiety and substance abuse also have a very strong correlation.
