Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older, or 18.1% of the population every year. Anxiety disorders are highly treatable, yet only 36.9% of those suffering receive treatment. (ADAA)
When our emotional pain is left unresolved, negative behavior patterns and responses can take shape in many forms. Anxiety & Panic Disorders are one of the branches of our “Trauma Tree” and are likely one of the most common issues our clients report struggling with prior to attending our program.
Many can quickly recognize anxiety, and it is probably one of the lesser stigmatized mental health struggles (though still not nearly enough). For some on the other hand, their anxiety takes many forms and can be evasive.

Anxiety Can Cause
Mental, Psychological, and Emotional Symptoms:
Like many other mental health struggles, anxiety often can hide itself as physical and psychological symptoms that we do not understand. We may just feel “off” and not understand why.
It is important to focus on healing and wellness recovery when these symptoms begin to impact one’s ability to live a happy and healthy life. The Bridge to Recovery provides a full continuum of care to do so.
Experiencing trauma, environmental & biological factors, and our family of origin can trigger the development of an anxiety disorder (for more information on what is considered trauma, please visit our Understanding Trauma page).
By addressing underlying causes, clients at The Bridge often experience significant improvement, and in some cases significant resolution of their anxiety struggles.
