Anxiety disorders refer to a class of mental health conditions characterized by symptoms of intense fear, worry, or dread. Some physical symptoms of anxiety disorders include shakiness, irritability, excessive crying, headaches, jitteriness, motor tics, sweating, nail biting or skin picking, nausea, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. Adults who suffer from anxiety disorders often report having racing thoughts, recurring flashbacks, obsessions about past or future events, and overall feelings of dread, panic, or hopelessness.

Anxiety is highly common among adults. As people face the mounting pressures of work, relationships, and extracurricular activities, the pressure to balance all that they face on any given day can become overwhelming. Adults often express anxiety over friendships, work, and hobbies. Some forms of anxiety disorders that adults suffer from may include generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and social anxiety disorder.

Although most individuals experience anxiety in some form on a daily basis given the demands of work, family life, and other responsibilities, what distinguishes an anxiety disorder from everyday worry is that it impairs daily functioning. Someone who suffers from a clinical anxiety disorder experiences worry that is out of proportion to the triggering event. An adult wrestling with an anxiety disorder often experiences panic to a debilitating degree, so much so that it might impact their work performance, extracurricular activities, hobbies, family dynamics, and friendships.

Yet by seeking treatment at Southstone in South Boston, Virginia, adults who are overwhelmed with anxiety can experience relief from their symptoms. At Southstone, we offer personalized anxiety disorder treatment services, providing our guests with clinically excellent care in a safe and serene setting. Our picturesque campus provides a tranquil environment for adults to recover from anxiety disorders and receive the individualized care they deserve.

Why Consider Treatment

Why consider treatment for anxiety at Southstone Recovery Center in South Boston, VA

Left untreated, an anxiety disorder can severely impact your loved one’s health and well-being. For some adults, anxiety can prove paralyzing as it interferes with their ability to accomplish their daily responsibilities. Anxiety disorders often lead to panic attacks, acute episodes of fear or discomfort characterized by troubled breathing, shaking, and increased heart rate. Panic attacks can interrupt everyday activities and disturb an individual’s emotional balance.  Adults who fail to receive treatment for anxiety disorders can also be at further risk for depression, substance use, self-harm, or thoughts of suicide.

However, with proper care, adults living with anxiety disorders can experience significant improvements to their health and increased feelings of happiness. During treatment at Southstone in South Boston, Virginia, adults are equipped with the necessary tools to manage symptoms of anxiety as they learn important coping skills for distressing situations.

Southstone is a peaceful and picturesque safe haven for young people who are suffering from anxiety disorders. Situated on 220 acres of rural land, Southstone is quietly tucked away in a tranquil setting in southern Virginia, secluded from the bustling city and crowded buildings typical of most treatment facilities. It is in this environment that adults can escape the triggers and stressors of everyday life and pursue treatment for anxiety disorders.

At Southstone, we treat every patient who walks through our doors as an honored guest. While many treatment facilities appear sterile and their amenities are crowded into one building, Southstone stands apart because its buildings are spread throughout the property, making it an inviting and welcoming campus. Living areas are comfortably separated from the dining, education, and treatment buildings, allowing ample space for outside activities.

Each guest of Southstone works with a multidisciplinary team of qualified mental health professionals. The staff at Southstone is passionate about treating women and providing them with the proper care based on their individual needs.

One of our goals at Southstone is to teach the guests critical relaxation tools, distress tolerance skills, and emotion regulation techniques. We offer various therapeutic techniques, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), which challenges the distorted thinking patterns that can lead to anxiety disorders. Throughout treatment, we will help them process through their experiences and learn to regulate formerly unmanageable symptoms of anxiety. We will encourage your loved one to participate wholeheartedly during their stay at our treatment facility in South Boston, supporting them as they take ownership over their own treatment experience.
