Treatment for drug and alcohol addictions are a combination of psychological, behavioral, and addiction skills therapy. At The Villa Treatment Center, we support every client through each step of the recovery process with an understanding that not every person is alike in terms of their illness. Although we are an addiction recovery center first, we also offer support treatment for anxiety disorders and other mental illnesses and connect our clients with the appropriate outside psychological assistance they need.
Our treatment center’s therapy options for addiction and co-occurring anxiety disorders from individual therapy to alternative group therapies are cohesive, and we take each client’s personal history and medical treatment into consideration. Dual diagnosis and simultaneous treatment for both addiction and anxiety is the key to full recovery. Anxiety is one of the disorders that we tailor substance abuse therapy for at The Villa Treatment Center and there are variety of anxiety classifications. This disorder isn’t something that should be feared, but understood and redirected.
Anxiety Is Meant to Protect Us
Within the body, the sympathetic nervous system activates our action response. If and when we are in danger, this part of the nervous system helps the body to conserve energy throughout all of the body’s systems and to concentrate on the fight or flight response. When you’re in the moment, throughout evolution and the history of man and survival, of impending danger your body will focus all your energy on movement of the muscles and reactions to survive.
