How Does Anxiety Disorder Treatment Work?

Anxiety disorder treatment includes a variety of therapeutic approaches that aim to ease these symptoms, improve coping mechanisms, and enhance overall well-being. 

Typically, treatment for anxiety disorders involves a combination of psychotherapy, medication, lifestyle modifications, and complementary therapies.

Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, allows people to explore the underlying causes of their anxiety, learn effective coping strategies, and develop healthier thought patterns and behaviors. 

Medication may be prescribed in conjunction with talk therapy to manage symptoms of anxiety. 

Commonly prescribed medications include selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), benzodiazepines, and beta-blockers. 

In addition to therapy and medication, lifestyle modifications play an important role in anxiety management and can contribute to improved mental health.

This can include activities like:

  • Regular exercise
  • Adequate sleep
  • Healthy nutrition
  • Stress management techniques (e.g., mindfulness, meditation)
  • Avoiding substances that exacerbate anxiety (e.g., caffeine, alcohol) 

Complementary therapies, such as yoga, acupuncture, massage therapy, and aromatherapy, may also be incorporated into an anxiety treatment plan. These practices promote relaxation, reduce stress, and enhance overall well-being.

Our anxiety disorder treatment programs are designed to address the physical, emotional, and psychological aspects of anxiety. So, we offer a holistic approach that combines these therapies for comprehensive treatment. 

Anxiety Treatment Services

We believe that a whole-person approach to anxiety disorders offers the most effective treatment. 

Our treatment options include evidence-based therapies, medication management, and alternative modalities aimed at fostering lasting mental health wellness.

Anxiety treatment at Navita is offered in both residential and outpatient programs, depending on which format is best for your needs.

Medication Management

We work closely with you to develop personalized anti-anxiety medication regimens aimed at addressing symptoms, such as excessive worry, panic attacks, physical manifestations of anxiety, and more.

These medications help regulate neurotransmitter levels in the brain, restoring the chemical balance that helps you adapt and respond to other treatment methods.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

DBT is a highly effective form of therapy that combines cognitive behavioral techniques with mindfulness practices. 

It helps you develop skills to manage intense emotions, improve interpersonal relationships, and cultivate a greater sense of self-awareness and acceptance. 

These skills can help you better regulate your thoughts, emotions, and physical sensations in the midst of anxiety attacks or other distressing symptoms of anxiety disorders.

Individual Therapy

Licensed therapists provide one-on-one counseling sessions tailored to your unique needs and goals. 

With their help and the use of science-backed methods like CBT, you can:

  • Explore the underlying causes of an anxiety disorder
  • Develop effective coping strategies
  • Work toward long-term healing and mental health wellness 

Group Therapy

Group therapy offers a supportive environment for you to connect with others who are facing similar challenges. 

Led by experienced facilitators, these sessions provide opportunities for peer support, skill-building, and the cultivation of healthy relationships.

Family Therapy

Anxiety disorders like post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can impact you and your loved ones. 

Family therapy sessions allow family members to explore how anxiety affects you and the family dynamic. 

It also works to improve communication and understanding among family members and helps them develop strategies for supporting you on your path to recovery.

Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

MBCT combines elements of cognitive therapy with mindfulness practices that can help you break free from negative thought patterns and cultivate greater awareness of the present moment.

It teaches practices like:

  • A three-minute breathing space to disrupt and disengage from repetitive thoughts and emotions
  • At home and group meditation practice
  • Mindful movement 
  • Body scanning to feel bodily sensations

By learning to observe thoughts and emotions without judgment, you can learn how to reduce anxiety and its symptoms, working toward lasting well-being.

Somatic Experiencing Therapy

Somatic therapy is a mind-body approach that focuses on the body’s physical sensations and responses to trauma or stress. 

During treatment, a mental health professional will gently guide you through exercises to release stored tension in the body and promote relaxation. 

This practice can help to ease anxiety symptoms and restore a sense of safety and balance within your own body.

Alternative Therapies

There are several alternative therapies aimed at further enhancing the anxiety treatment experience. These include:

  • EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing): EMDR is a research-supported therapy that helps you process traumatic memories and reduce anxiety symptoms through bilateral stimulation. It can be effective for those struggling with PTSD or past trauma.
  • Art therapy: Art therapy is a form of self-help that offers a creative outlet for self-expression and exploration. You can explore various mediums to process emotions and gain insights into your experiences.
  • Animal-assisted therapy: Interacting with animals can have profound therapeutic benefits, reducing stress, promoting relaxation, and enhancing social connection. Our animal-assisted therapy program allows you to engage with trained therapy animals in a safe and supportive environment.
  • Equine therapy: This approach offers structured activities and interactions with horses, to help you develop essential life skills such as trust, communication, and emotional regulation, leading to greater confidence and empowerment.

Types of Anxiety Disorders We Treat

At Navita Health, we specialize in treating a variety of anxiety disorders, recognizing that each individual may experience unique symptoms and challenges.

Here’s an overview of the anxiety disorders we commonly treat:

Generalized Anxiety Disorder

Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is characterized by persistent and excessive worry about various aspects of life, such as work, health, finances, or relationships.

Symptoms of GAD may include restlessness, irritability, muscle tension, difficulty concentrating, and sleep disturbances.

Treatment typically involves cognitive behavioral therapy, relaxation techniques, medications that help with serotonin reuptake like escitalopram, and lifestyle modifications.

Social Anxiety Disorder

Social anxiety disorder, also known as social phobia, involves intense fear or anxiety about social situations in which the individual may be scrutinized or judged by others.

Symptoms may include fear of public speaking, avoiding social gatherings, blushing, sweating, trembling, and nausea.

Treatment for social anxiety disorder often includes exposure therapy, cognitive restructuring, anti-anxiety medications like buspirone, and social skills training.

Panic Disorders

Panic disorder is characterized by recurrent panic attacks. These are sudden and intense episodes of fear or discomfort accompanied by physical symptoms, such as heart palpitations, chest pain, shortness of breath, and dizziness.

Those with panic disorder may also develop anticipatory anxiety about experiencing future panic attacks.

Treatment for panic disorder may involve CBT, exposure therapy, relaxation techniques, and medications, such as SSRIs, benzodiazepines, or antidepressants (e.g. venlafaxine).


Phobias are irrational and intense fears of specific objects, situations, or activities that pose little or no actual danger.

Common phobias include fear of heights (acrophobia), fear of spiders (arachnophobia), fear of flying (aviophobia), and fear of enclosed spaces (claustrophobia).

Treatment for phobias often involves exposure therapy, cognitive restructuring, relaxation techniques, and gradual desensitization to the feared stimuli.

Separation Anxiety

Separation anxiety disorder is most commonly diagnosed in adolescents but can also occur in adults. It involves excessive fear or anxiety about separation from attachment figures, such as parents or caregivers.

Symptoms may include clinginess, refusal to attend school or daycare, nightmares about separation, and physical complaints when separation is expected.

Treatment for separation anxiety disorder may include psychotherapy, parent-child interaction therapy, and gradual exposure to separation.

Who Will Benefit from Anxiety Treatment?

If you are currently struggling with anxiety disorders like obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), specific phobias, or another anxiety-based mental illness, you may benefit from treatment.

Anxiety disorders encompass a range of mental health conditions characterized by excessive worry, fear, and apprehension that can affect adolescents and adults. 

Physical symptoms of anxiety may manifest as: 

  • Persistent feelings of unease
  • Racing thoughts
  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Physical manifestations, such as muscle tension, trembling, and shortness of breath

These symptoms can significantly impact daily life, affecting relationships, work, school, and overall well-being.

Does Insurance Cover Anxiety Treatment in Texas?

Insurance coverage for anxiety medical conditions is available. However, various factors may influence the extent of coverage, such as the type of insurance, your provider network, and the details of your policy.

In Texas, there are different insurance plans, such as employer-sponsored plans, individual or family plans purchased through the Health Insurance Marketplace, Medicaid, or Medicare. 

These plans work with different primary care providers known as in-network providers who offer services at lower out-of-pocket costs for plan members.

Be sure to check whether your preferred mental health treatment provider is in-network with your insurance plan to maximize your coverage benefits.

If you encounter challenges with insurance coverage for your mental healthcare treatment, discuss options with your treatment provider. They may offer payment arrangements or alternative resources so you can get the help, care, and support you need.
