Anxiety/Panic Disorders and Addiction

Anxiety/Panic Disorders and Addiction Treatment at Banyan Chicago 

When an individual suffers from anxiety, panic disorders, and addiction simultaneously, it’s referred to as a dual diagnosis. People who suffer from anxiety or panic disorder and addiction may require a specific form of treatment that targets the facets of both their mental illness and substance abuse disorder. The symptoms of addiction, anxiety, and panic disorders are different, and each may be brought on for different reasons. While mental illness and substance abuse are often linked, both required their own individual forms of treatments. Our drug rehab in Chicago offers anxiety/panic disorders and addiction treatment that can help people battling with a dependency and these types of mental disorders get the most efficient care possible. 

Symptoms of Anxiety and Panic Attacks

While the signs of addiction are largely dependent on the substance being abused, panic and anxiety symptoms are different. Individuals with these conditions are often under severe distress. Depending on the severity of their condition, they may be easily triggered by certain situations or people.

The most common of these symptoms include:

  • Sweating
  • Chest pains
  • Nervousness
  • Feeling of Unease
  • Stomach Pain
  • Uncontrollable Shaking
  • Hot Flashes
  • Dizziness
  • Paranoia
  • Rapid Heart Rate
  • Trouble Regulating Breathing

In most dual diagnosis cases, the person’s substance abuse stems from their attempts to self-medicate and cope with the symptoms of their mental illness. Rather than receive addiction treatment or mental health help, they try to alleviate the side effects of their condition with drinking or drug abuse. For many people who struggle with panic, anxiety disorders and substance abuse, quitting drugs or alcohol can potentially worsen symptoms of mental illness. In these cases, the best thing the individual can do is get anxiety/panic disorders and addiction treatment at our Illinois rehab facility.
