Anxiety Disorder

What is Anxiety Disorder?

Anxiety is a serious and challenging issue that requires specialized treatment, Counseling and support.

Led by experienced Behavioral Modification therapists and specialists, the rehab center offers comprehensive programs to address the physical, emotional, and psychological aspects of Anxiety issues. Through a holistic and personalized approach, Arha aims to guide individuals on a path of recovery, healing, and renewed hope for a brighter future.

The American Psychological Association (APA) defines anxiety as an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts, and physical changes like increased blood pressure.

While there may not always be one definite thought or feeling that causes anxiety, it is most often associated with an overwhelming fear of the future. Since the future is uncertain and bleak, a person with anxiety may feel excessively intimidated by it. One’s inability to predict future occurrences may further lead to frustration and more anxious thoughts, forming a vicious cycle.

Such feelings have enormous potential to completely take over an individual’s life. This can be very hampering but can be remedied through treatment for anxiety.
