Dual Diagnosis Treatment for Anxiety & Addiction
Treatment in Florida for Co-Occurring Anxiety & Addiction
We all experience natural and even beneficial episodes of worry and fear when faced with stressful or dangerous situations. However, people with clinical anxiety experience persistent, often unfounded worries that interfere with their daily lives. The symptoms of anxiety can be both psychological and physical. As such, addressing these problems requires a multifaceted approach to treatment.
In a bid to cope with the debilitating symptoms, it’s not uncommon for people battling anxiety to misuse drugs and alcohol. It’s estimated that individuals suffering from anxiety are twice as likely to have a co-occurring substance abuse disorder.
Sadly, attempts at self-medication with drugs and alcohol often backfire and result in over-dependence which, in turn, intensifies the symptoms of anxiety. The result is a never-ending cycle of substance abuse that can eventually lead to chronic dependence and addiction.
If you’re ready to break the cycle, we can help. Call Tranquil Shores for a free, confidential consultation about our dual diagnosis treatment services. We can be reached at (727) 888-6623 or via our online contact form.
Signs and Symptoms of Anxiety
Although there are many forms of anxiety disorders, all anxiety disorders have certain characteristics in common. Some of the early warning signs of anxiety include:
- A crippling fear — about a particular thing or no specific thing — that occurs almost every day of the week for six months or more
- A decline in social activities, job performance, quality of relationships and overall satisfaction with life as a result of this excessive fear
- Constant attempts to resolve the fear without success
- Using alcohol and drugs or engaging in reckless behavior to manage the symptoms of anxiety
Anxiety also has a direct influence on the body and can manifest itself physically through the following symptoms:
- Shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat and chest pain
- Sweating, choking sensations and trembling
- Nausea, stomach pain and dizziness
