Anxiety is the reaction of the mind and body to real or imagined threats and danger. It is a survival reaction. Often, anxiety produces physical symptoms of a rapid heartbeat, tense muscles, sweaty hands, queasy stomach, or trembling hands and legs. The flight or flight reaction to danger is the result of the rush of adrenaline in the body. Fight or flight means the mind decides whether the threat is real and how the person wants to respond. Fight the danger or run away from the situation? The symptoms of anxiety often continue long after the incident is over.However, anxiety is treatable. At Silicon Beach Treatment Center, we offer an anxiety disorder treatment center in conjunction with our substance abuse treatment programs.

With anxiety disorders, it is essential to distinguish between fear and anxiety. Fear is a natural and necessary reaction to what is considered threatening. It does not matter if the threat is real or imagined. Fear is a natural response if the individual perceives the threat to be imminent.
Anxiety, however, anticipates a future threat. A standard response to a threat produces a mild feeling of anxiety, fear, nervousness, repetitive thoughts, dread, and other uncomfortable emotions. Often it is accompanied by physical symptoms too. Many situations can produce anxiety, such as socializing, performance in school or work, dating, illness, and traumatic events. However, anxiety disorders develop when fears and worries keep you from functioning on a day-to-day basis.

Eating a healthy diet, a regular exercise routine, reducing alcohol, learning to relax using yoga or meditation, and getting enough sleep are some changes that help.

Some anxiety disorders only require short-term medical help and others require years of medication and therapy.
