Anxiety Disorders affect more than 13% of the adult population. Anxiety Disorders include:
• Panic Disorder
• Generalized Anxiety Disorder
• Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
• Phobias (Fear of heights, spiders, etc.)
• Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
Anxiety Disorders get in the way of daily living and quality of life. There is no single factor that has been identified as a root cause of anxiety disorders but most professionals agree that both biological and environmental factors play a role. Anxiety Disorders include symptoms such as restlessness, fatigue, and trouble with concentration, irritability, and muscle tension, sleep disturbance, rumination/worry, racing heart, sweating and trembling. Additionally, people with anxiety disorders often suffer from other co-occurring problems such as depression and substance abuse.
