Anxiety Disorders

One-quarter of the population is affected by anxiety disorders, most do not seek treatment.  Anxious people use a disproportionate amount of medical services.  Some 25% of people with anxiety disorders are unemployed, 1/3 on Public Assistance.

Anti-anxiety medications (Xanax. Valium) alone demonstrate short-term effectiveness but also have a very high rate of relapse.

Community Concern offers treatments including cognitive-behavioral therapies, stress management workshop, exposure therapy, relaxation therapy, and sleep hygiene education to effectively treat anxiety disorders.
