What is the difference between residential and inpatient anxiety treatment?

However, inpatient treatment is usually of a shorter duration than residential treatment, which can extend to 30 days and beyond.

Can anxiety disorders be treated or cured?

While there are no cures for anxiety disorders, there are certainly effective solutions that can help you learn to manage the symptoms of these conditions. With the proper professional help, you can manage your disorder, and take back control over your life.

The panic attacks would come out of nowhere. I started getting them at work, at the gym, the grocery store - you name it. They began to be so frequent and so debilitating that I couldn't leave my house. Through recovery here, I've learned to manage my anxiety and not let it affect my daily life. Thank you WTC!
