Does Your Son Struggle With
Resolution Ranch Academy Can Help Your Son
Anxiety Disorder (sometimes referred to as Generalized Anxiety Disorder) is a chronic condition marked by a severe and devastating level of fear, which may be marked by panic attacks; specific phobias provoked by particular things or situations, and may include social anxiety disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It can be just mental and emotional, or possibly present with physical symptoms (i.e.: profuse sweating, fast pulse, sleeping problems). Full-blown attacks can be experienced as paralyzing to those who are suffering.
Typically, a diagnosis requires that the anxiety last a minimum of six months.
Treatment For Anxiety Disorder at Resolution Ranch Academy
Early Diagnosis and treatment for Anxiety Disorder is necessary, so that the anxiety does not build to the point of clinical depression, possibly leading to self-medicating with drugs or alcohol, or other injurious behaviors.
Your boy’s treatment approach might include a combination of therapies. Cognitive behavioral therapy is one of the more helpful means of treatment for high-level anxiety. That therapeutic approach is focused on recognizing thought patterns that can lead to anxiety, and then preventing negative behaviors by teaching new responses to those triggering events.
Your son might also benefit from medication to help in dealing with anxiety, although others find the side effects too difficult to handle.
As parents, you may find it impossible to comprehend the underlying causes that elicit such responses but with early diagnosis and professional help, Anxiety Disorder is generally treated with fairly high rates of success.
