If you are experiencing anxiety attacks, they will not just go away over time.
How Does Anxiety Develop?
Anxiety disorders develop from a complex set of risk factors. They include genetics, brain chemistry, personality, and life events.* Traumatic events, often from childhood, can cause anxiety. Anxiety may not develop until adulthood, when an abusive relationship can be a cause.
Symptoms of Anxiety
If you are experiencing anxiety, it is tempting – especially early on – to rationalize what you are experiencing. “I’m overstressed,” “I need a break,” or “I can’t be around [insert name or situation] without losing it!” But over time, as symptoms and anxiety episodes persist, it becomes difficult to write off the tingling in the fingers or uncontrollable crying and screaming. The lack of control over your speech, or the inability to stand, drive or communicate can’t be ignored. The truth is anxiety does not just go away over time. In fact, without professional treatment, it can become worse.
Understanding the difference between irritation and occasional stress and symptoms of anxiety can help understand if one has a more serious issue. Do you recognize any of the following symptoms in yourself or in a loved one? Are you experiencing symptoms associated with anxiety? Recognizing these symptoms is the first step toward receiving treatment and gaining freedom from this life-limiting condition.
Anxiety symptoms include, but are not limited to:
- Sweat, heart pounding and shortness of breath
- Experiencing an anxiety episode (panic attack, or anxiety attack) that can include one or more of the following:
- An inability to use one’s hands of arms
- Uncontrollable screams
- Rapid onset of crying
- Uncontrollable shaking
- Difficult talking or communicating
- Feeling as though you cannot breathe
- Feeling as though you are going to die
- Feeling out of control, unable to control your body or breathing
- Feeling restless and irritable
- Persistent worrying
- Tingling in your extremities (which may be associated with panic attacks)
- Avoidance of everyday activities
- Feeling panicky and dreading social situations
- Consistently anticipating worst-case scenarios
- Obsessively looking for signs of danger
- Fear of public settings or crowded places
- Headaches and dizziness
- Sore muscles, twitching and trembling
- Nausea, diarrhea and irritable bowel syndrome
- Fatigue and insomnia
If you or a loved one is experiencing one or more of these symptoms, it is advisable to speak with a medical or mental healthcare professional. If you are experiencing the symptoms frequently, or intensely, you are likely burdened with an anxiety disorder. Professional treatment is proven to be effective, helping you or your loved one restore their balance, balance, purpose, and happiness.

“I went to The Center to learn to overcome depression, anxiety, eating disorder, and trauma history. My primary goals were to be able to learn tool to help me deal with depression; getting back to work and family. Very fulfilling; the ideology of treating the whole person has been the most beneficial for me; as well as the tools that I have learned while here. Practical to use in everyday life
My experience with my medical team couldn’t have been better. I know staffing was an issue while I was here, but the larger groups made it harder to be open.
I feel blessed to have been able to been treated here the last 4 weeks; I know my decision to come here was an answered prayer from above. Continue God’s work…it blesses many people!”
Whole-person care at The Center • A Place of HOPE
Whole-person care was created by Dr. Gregory Jantz, PhD, the founder of The Center • A Place of HOPE, in the early 1980’s. Dr. Jantz noticed that other programs were treating just the symptoms of an individual’s disorder or addiction. This type of narrowly focused treatment was not providing the type of long-lasting care – complete recovery and freedom from one’s disorder – needed to define true success.
Treatment for the entire you — your mind, body and spirit
Whole-person care treats your entire person, all aspects of your life – physical, mental, emotional, nutritional, fitness, spiritual – to enable complete healing for your mind, body and spirit. In this way, you work through all components of your life that have contributed to your current condition. The result is a deeper, longer-lasting and more complete recovery.
Your very own team of world-class professionals assigned just to you
At The Center • A Place of HOPE, we assign a team of world-class, licensed and board-certified professionals just to you. Team members are highly specialized and include licensed medical doctors, psychiatrists, eating disorder specialists, psychologists, nutritionists, dietitians, mental health counselors, chemical dependency counselors, fitness trainers, registered nurses and marriage and family counselors,and clergy. They take the time to get to know you personally and understand all of your life events that have contributed to your current situation.
They then create a treatment program that is uniquely tailored to you, personalized to your individual needs and life experiences, and built to return you to a place of lasting balance, health and happiness.
Each treatment program is different, and the length and level of care required in each program varies. But each person discusses the cost of their program with a trained program specialist prior to arrival to fully understand what costs are involved. Costs are on a per-diem basis and include professional transportation to and from the Seattle airport, all lodging in modern luxury condominium-style apartments, morning and afternoon meals, and all treatment programs including all medical and psychological evaluations.
