Panic Disorders in Teens
Fear is an emotion that we’ve all experienced. Perhaps you heard a creepy sound in the dark while taking out the trash. Or you’re waiting for a jumpscare while watching a scary movie with your friends. But repeatedly experiencing fear to the point where it causes physical and mental distress could be a sign of panic disorder.
Panic disorder can cause you to have a sudden physical reaction to overwhelming fear. It can be scary and unsettling when you’re experiencing symptoms that you can’t control. At Lightfully Teen, we can help treat panic disorder to reduce its impact on your quality of life.
How Can Lightfully Teen Help Panic Disorder?
The good news is that, according to the National Institute of Mental Health, panic disorder is the most treatable type of anxiety disorder. Proper treatment, especially psychotherapy, will help you adjust your mindset and see how the symptoms are non-life-threatening. Learning about the disorder and recognizing the signs can make a difference in how long you have to live in fear of unexpected panic attacks.
That’s why Lightfully Teen is an effective treatment option for teens with panic disorder. We use process-based therapy to help you examine your mental health from every angle to determine the factors that contribute to your disorder.
Process-based therapy allows us to treat your entire well-being, not just your panic disorder diagnosis. It consists of using integrated interventions to help with the core processes that impact your mental health:
- Difficulty with emotions
- Difficulty with thoughts
- Difficulty with behaviors
- Difficulty with relationships
Lightfully Teen Can Help Treat Your Panic Disorder
Process-based therapy can help your panic disorder in our three levels of care: Residential Treatment, Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), and Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP), also called our Day Treatment Program.
