When Fear Gets Out of Control

For the millions of Americans with an anxiety disorder, symptoms can be unrelenting and terrifying. Fortunately, effective treatment is possible. Read below to find out more.

  • Chronic Anxiety:
    Ongoing and exaggerated worry about everyday things. This anxiety is chronic and interferes with every day living, including work, school or relationships.
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD):
    Unwanted thoughts (obsessions) that can’t seem to be turned off. To reduce anxiety, individuals engage in rigid routines or rituals (compulsions) that may go on for hours at a time
  • Panic Disorder:
    Symptoms include out-of-the-blue attacks, racing thoughts, difficulty breathing, fear of dying and more. Sufferers often avoid situations they fear will trigger future panic attacks, such as shopping malls, grocery stores, and other public places.
  • Social Anxiety:
    An exaggerated fear of being embarrassed, rejected, or humiliated in social situations. This issue often interferes with forming new friendships or
    gaining employment.
