Have you ever read about a celebrity checking themselves into "rehab" or "a facility" for conditions like anxiety or exhaustion and wondered if that was code for a luxurious spa retreat?
While most people are familiar with the concept of a residential treatment center, they usually associate it with treatment for alcoholism and other substance abuse disorders. However, anxiety treatment centers do exist, providing intensive psychotherapy without necessitating a hospital stay.
Reputable anxiety treatment centers will have well-educated staff who are trained to provide a variety of treatment options. You should expect individual attention, with a thorough evaluation and diagnostic work-up completed as a foundation for creating your treatment plan.
Treatment options at anxiety centers may include cognitive-behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy skills, group therapy, somatic experiencing, educational lectures, biofeedback, acupuncture, massage therapy, yoga, music and/or art therapy, life skills counseling, and medication management. Some centers offer more treatments and others less; the skill of the staff and whether the treatments are a good fit for your situation are more important than the number of options offered.
While it can be beneficial, a stay at an anxiety treatment center can be very expensive and is rarely completely covered under medical insurance. It’s a good idea to talk with your doctor about your desire for more intensive treatment before committing to a treatment center on your own--he or she may be able to direct you to more affordable outpatient options in your area that you haven’t yet explored.
