Anxiety is a natural experience that most of us will experience in our lives. It is often the body’s response to a stressful life event. However, for some of us, anxiety becomes an overwhelming sensation that is difficult to manage on a day to day basis. Anxiety can manifest itself in several different ways through physical, cognitive and emotional means. Symptoms may include, but are not limited to, Trembling, sweating, difficulty sleeping, difficulty controlling worry, rapid breathing, feeling a sense of danger or panic constantly and racing thoughts. For many within addiction, the use of substances can either intensify or mitigate the feelings associated with anxiety. At Addiction Rehab Toronto, we utilize a holistic approach that begins with behavioural, cognitive, and emotional therapy strategies in an attempt to lessen the intensity of anxiety. The experiences of anxiety can be beneficial as it may be our body’s internal signal, creating a sense of awareness, that something in our lives is unbalanced. However, when the above-mentioned symptoms, as well as others, become overwhelming, therapy may be the best option. Addiction Rehab Toronto’s clinical staff implement several strategies. From a cognitive perspective, techniques such as identification of distorted thinking and cognitive reframing. Behavioural goals that can be implemented to help manage anxiety include mindfulness strategies and participating in tasks that will increase mood and distract from certain thoughts. Anxiety is a component of mental health that may be intensified by the use of substances. However, pairing abstinence with counseling and therapy, clients at Addiction Rehab Toronto learn how to manage and potentially mitigate the uncomfortable feelings associated with anxiety.
