How Anxiety Impacts Teens and Young Adults
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health concern among teens and young adults. They’re characterized by the following:
- Chronic or intense worry
- Physical symptoms such as nausea, headaches, or chest pain
- Difficulty managing emotions
- Avoidance of social situations or other activities
- Difficulty concentrating
There are several types of anxiety disorders, including generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, and panic disorder. For teens and young adults especially, a wide range of additional factors can make anxiety even more difficult to manage, such as family conflict, school-related stress, and bullying or harassment.
People with anxiety may be affected at home, in school, or at work. They can also struggle to build and sustain relationships with family, friends, or romantic partners. However, with the right treatment and support, teens and young adults can build the healthy skills needed for a life of lasting healing.
Our Anxiety Treatment Program for Teens and Young Adults
We understand the importance of building a healthy support system for teens and young adults with anxiety. Our comprehensive approach combines evidence-based therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy with holistic treatments like meditation. This approach helps teens and young adults build healthy coping skills, manage symptoms, and lead fulfilling lives.
Additional therapies like trauma therapy can help address underlying issues fueling anxiety. If your loved one is struggling with substance use, our treatment program can also include dual diagnosis treatment to address both issues simultaneously. This holistic approach gets to the root of your loved one’s concerns and promotes lasting healing.
One thing that sets Kiwi Recovery’s anxiety treatment program apart is that it was designed with young adults in mind. We know our teenage and young adult clients need a treatment program that respects their needs, values, and goals. Our team, composed of experienced therapists and counselors, takes the time to understand each individual before creating a personalized treatment plan. And since mental health concerns like anxiety can be isolating, we’ve made it a priority to create a safe and supportive environment where your loved one can connect with peers who are also on their journey toward healing.
