What is Anxiety Disorder?

People with an anxiety disorder often feel intense and prolonged worry, fear, panic, and negative thoughts. Feeling like this makes daily life challenging, and for some individuals, nearly impossible. Sometimes, anxiety sufferers will look for a way to get some relief from their symptoms. Unfortunately, one “solution” that is commonly found is using substances. While drugs and alcohol may give users temporary relief from symptoms, it isn’t a sustainable answer to their anxiety problems. When substances are relied on over time, symptoms get worse and often lead to addiction.

The Effects Of Anxiety Disorder On The Mind

Anxiety disorders are typically characterized by intense and prolonged fear or worry, panic attacks, and negative thoughts. These types of disorders can make going through life daily feel difficult or even impossible. People who suffer from anxiety disorders commonly search for a solution to mitigate their symptoms. Unfortunately, sometimes they find drugs or alcohol along the way. While substances like drugs or alcohol may provide temporary relief from anxiety symptoms, when relied on over time, these substances can actually worsen symptoms and lead to addiction. 

 

Many different addictive substances have negative side effects, including paranoia and anxiety. While these side effects may not occur at first, once a person is further along in their addiction, they may find themselves ingesting more of the addictive substance in an effort to eliminate these side effects. This cycle of addiction can quickly spiral out of control, necessitating the use of an addiction treatment program to address the individual’s dependence on drugs or alcohol. 

Getting Help With Anxiety and Substance Abuse

Drug and alcohol treatment programs have been proven to help clients work through their addiction, as well as any co-occurring mental health disorders that they may be suffering from. Recovery programs are designed to provide clients with much-needed access to therapy programs as well as various tools and skills that they can use in their life to properly cope with their mental health as well as any substance abuse issues they have developed.
