Someone suffering from panic disorder experiences recurring episodes of panic attacks, which produce severe anxiety and may cause disabling physical symptoms. There is no real danger taking place, the individual just feels threatened and experiences extreme fear causing the panic attack to happen.

Panic attacks usually last a few minutes, but if the individual suffering from an attack is not able to move to a more comfortable environment the panic attack can last much longer.

Clients who suffer from these disabling symptoms can benefit from care at a residential panic disorder treatment center that is tailored specifically to their needs.

Panic Disorder Treatment Overview

If panic disorder is left untreated, the symptoms will worsen causing severe distress on one’s ability to function normally. Psychotherapy and medication are the two main methods for treating panic disorder. Individuals suffering from this condition respond very well to targeted panic disorder therapy. In addition, alternative and holistic therapies may be used. Treatment in a panic disorder residential facility will help patients achieve long-term sustainable change to overcome symptoms and regain normal healthy function including learning healthy coping strategies and building a social support system.

Panic disorder responds well to treatment, especially in a residential setting. A residential facility has much more to offer than taking an outpatient treatment route. During their stay patients will learn through psychotherapy, group therapy sessions, life skills and coping skills, family therapy, nutrition and exercise, and alternative and holistic therapies. Prescription medication may be prescribed which will help lessen symptoms but will not cure panic disorder.

The prognosis for those suffering from panic disorder is good. With a commitment to the residential treatment process, as well as other factors like social support and ongoing therapy after treatment, it is possible to overcome anxiety and move forward.

Integrated Panic Disorder Treatment at Bridges to Recovery

At Bridges to Recovery, we help select coping mechanisms that work best for each individual, such as meditation, exercise, and creative activities. We facilitate practicing these strategies so clients can continue to use them when they return home after treatment. Clients may participate in group therapy sessions or in support groups to connect with others who are also suffering from panic disorder. The types of therapies we used in panic disorder treatment include:

  • Individual psychotherapy. One-on-one psychotherapy is the classic type of talk treatment that helps you explore your emotions and experiences that underlie negative feelings and behaviors. Individual therapy is an essential component in treatment for panic disorder.
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is a very effective and commonly used therapy to treat panic disorder. This type of therapy helps patients retrain their thinking patterns and change their actions, helping them overcome their fear of social situations. Group and family therapy are also provided in residential treatment.
  • Relational therapy. Panic disorder can wreak havoc on interpersonal relationships. Relational therapy can help you learn how your relationships, life experiences, and emotions are all connected and take steps to develop healthier relationships.
  • Family therapy and education. Therapy that involves your family may be a great way to help educate the people most important to you about your panic disorder and about how they can best support you.
  • Trauma-focused therapies. If a traumatic experience is an underlying or contributing cause of your panic disorder, we offer therapies that will specifically focus on processing and reframing these traumas to help you improve your symptoms.
  • Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). ACT focuses more on accepting unhelpful negative thoughts as they are, rather than trying to replace them with positive thoughts.The aim is to teach people living with panic disorder to cope with negative thoughts and feelings better instead of replacing those thoughts and feelings.
  • Relaxation and mindfulness techniques. Alternative and holistic therapies may also be used to treat social anxiety. Most commonly, meditation, yoga, and exercise are employed.
