Why Consider Treatment

Why consider treatment for anxiety at Sierra Tucson

The presence of an untreated anxiety disorder can quickly begin to interfere with all areas of a person’s life, sometimes making it challenging to function appropriately on a daily basis. The presence of anxiety symptoms can prevent a person from adequately completing responsibilities at work, concentrating on daily tasks, and being able to establish and maintain interpersonal relationships. Some individuals may be unable to go certain places or, in some instances, are unable to leave their home at all. Additionally, it is common for individuals with anxiety disorders to develop additional mental health problems, such as depression, or a variety of physical illnesses including heart disease and respiratory problems. Furthermore, those with anxiety are at an increased risk for the development of substance abuse problems and suicide.

Types of Treatment

Types of anxiety treatment offered at Sierra Tucson

As an internationally known and respected treatment provider of medical, therapeutic, and experiential services, our rehab is pleased to offer state of the art treatment for a wide range of behavioral health concerns. Through the integration of evidence-based practices and integrative therapies, our treatment center prides itself on being a leading provider of services that are effective in treating addictions and other behavioral health problems. Holistic and individualized treatment is cornerstone to the best care offered at our rehab, and is provided by a staff of qualified and experienced. At Sierra Tucson, a premier anxiety treatment center, our primary goal is to deliver services in such a manner that all who come to us for treatment will benefit from our services and resume the pursuit of a healthy and productive future.

Our rehab includes our 15-bed behavioral health inpatient unit, and a 124-bed behavioral health residential treatment center, both of which are situated on the same campus. Residents who require immediate stabilization due to the presence of psychiatric concerns, such as those associated with an anxiety disorder or those in need of medical detoxification can receive these services prior to engaging in our treatment center’s residential care.

The behavioral health residential treatment supplied by our rehab is designed to elicit the most favorable treatment outcomes for all residents. With five distinct treatment options offered within the residential treatment center, residents can expect to receive the beneficial services they need in order to truly heal. For those who are trying to overcome the debilitating symptoms of anxiety, our treatment center’s Mood and Anxiety Program allows residents to experience healing of the mind, body, and spirit through an integrative and comprehensive approach to treatment. This intensive treatment incorporates both cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavior therapy workshops while continuing to provide psychodynamic therapy through the primary process group and individual therapies.

The types of services you receive will be determined by your treatment team. Once an initial assessment has determined that a resident’s needs will be best met through this treatment, they can learn healthy ways of coping with stress and anxiety and begin to prepare themselves for reintegration back into their community. Additional treatment methods offered at our rehab that may be included in a resident’s treatment plan include:

Medication management: Residents engaged in the Mood and Anxiety Program are seen by a psychiatrist or attending physician on a weekly basis in order to determine the need for medication, monitor medication, and adjust any medication prescribed in order to ensure optimal alleviation of mental health symptoms, including those associated with anxiety. Registered nurses and clinical technicians also assist in monitoring a resident’s medication needs at our treatment center.

Individual therapy: Upon entering the Mood and Anxiety treatment plan, each resident is assigned a primary therapist with whom they will meet at least once each week. All individual sessions are conducted by Master’s level clinicians and licensed psychologists at our anxiety rehab.

Group therapy: In addition to being assigned a primary therapist at our treatment center, each resident is also assigned a small group of peers with whom they will meet four times per week with a primary therapist. In addition to the peer group, other groups are supplied by this treatment plan and may include topics such as:

  • Hygiene
  • Coping skills
  • Working through grief and loss
  • Relapse prevention
  • Anger management
  • Dialectical skills group
  • Mindfulness

Therapeutic Recreational Activities: In order to help residents build a stronger sense of self and confidence, our rehab offers a Therapeutic Recreational Activities Program. This treatment option includes the following therapeutic activities, of which are conducted daily or on a weekly basis to stress the importance of getting physical activity:

  • Equine therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Chi Kung
  • Reiki
  • Personal training
  • Adventure therapy (including a ropes course and rock climbing wall)
  • Psychodrama
  • Yoga

Additional services for purchase: In order to best care for the needs of those in the Mood and Anxiety treatment plan, our rehab center offers a number of additional services that have proven effectiveness in helping people manage the symptoms of their anxiety or mood disorder. The following services are those offered within this innovative treatment:

  • Somatic Experiencing® Therapy (SE)

Should a resident require stabilization services while engaged in our rehab’s residential treatment center, they are able to partake in the services supplied by our inpatient program before returning to residential treatment. The staff of professionals conducts an ongoing assessment of each resident’s progress and needs and offers assistance in making this a seamless transition so as to continue the process of healing with as little disruption as possible.

Continuing Care

Continuing care and levels of treatment for anxiety

Sierra Tucson’s method for providing the best all-encompassing care for every resident who comes for treatment includes thorough discharge planning and continuing care services that are second-to-none. Once a resident engages in services at our anxiety treatment center, a comprehensive continued care plan is devised so that residents can remain successful once treatment is complete. Those partaking in the services at our Behavioral Health Inpatient Unit meet with continued care staff to assess each individual’s needs and plan for discharge. Those engaged in the residential treatment at our rehab meet with the same continued care staff and regional outreach specialists and partake in lectures, as well as one-on-one planning sessions, to ensure quality referrals and to establish any follow-up appointments that may be required once a resident is discharged.

Furthermore, residents exiting the residential treatment, along with their family members, can benefit from The Connections Program. This treatment plan includes 12-month-long case management services that are designed to provide ongoing and substantial support to former residents. A representative from this plan contacts residents 48 hours after discharge and is available to assist these individuals in seeking and obtaining the additional services they need in order to remain successful in the process of healing and recovery.

Lastly, former residents can take part in the Alumni Relations affiliated with our rehab. These services include groups offered through outpatient centers, of which are located across the United States.

If you or a loved one wishes to receive the superior care that has helped many individuals live happier lives, free from the debilitating symptoms of anxiety, look no further than our treatment center.

Sierra Tucson changed my life. I will forever be indebted and forever grateful.
