You deserve peace and balance in your life.


Anxiety is the most common mental health challenge in the U.S, affecting over 40 million people. Anxiety comes in many forms, and is known by different names. But each have similar characteristics that can produce powerful and debilitating effects – uncontrollable shaking and screaming, a feeling of suffocating, dryness of the mouth, an inability to talk, drive, or operate machinery.

Anxiety episodes can come on quickly with little or no warning. Left untreated, anxiety does not “go away” and can become worse over time.

There is good new regarding all forms of anxiety – they are all treatable, with proven, long-lasting results from professional anxiety treatment programs.

Different types of anxiety include:

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). GAD is the most common form of anxiety and is experienced by about 7 million adult Americans (over 3% of adults). It is characterized by persistent, exaggerated worry and tension. Women are twice as likely as men to experience GAD. GAD is often prevalent even when there is little or nothing to provoke it. GAD is highly treatable, but left untreated it can worsen over time. Very treatable.
  • Panic Disorder (PD). Often referred to panic attacks, or anxiety attacks, PD affects over 6 million Americans. Women are twice as likely to experience PD than men. Panic Attacks can be severe and are often characterized by unexpected, repeat episodes of intense stress or fear. Physical symptoms may include shortness of breath, tingling in the fingers and extremities, tightness in the chest, heart palpitations, uncontrollable screaming and/or crying, dizziness, abdominal distress, feeling as though one might die, and other issues. Very treatable.
  • Social Anxiety Disorder, or Social Phobia. One of the largest single disorders, Social Anxiety Disorder affects more than 16 million Americans. This disorder affects men and women equally, and can begin as early as twelve years old, often associated with the time children change from grade school to middle school or junior high. The disorder is characterized by overwhelming fear and/or anxiety and excessive self-conscious evaluation in everyday social settings. Social phobia can manifest in single, defined settings, like public speaking or having dinner in public. In more severe cases, the disorder can be so pervasive that symptoms are present anytime other people are around, or even if others may be expected to arrive at a home or enter a room. Very treatable.
  • Bipolar Anxiety
  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). Affecting over two million American adults, OCD most frequently occurs just after an individual leaves high school. OCD affects men and women equally. it is considered a form of anxiety, and characterized by recurring, unwanted thoughts and/or repetitive behaviors. These are often referred to as “obsessions” and “compulsions.” Symptoms include repetitive hand washing, counting, re-checking completed tasks, or frequent cleaning. Individuals do these tasks in hopes of preventing obsessive thoughts, or believing these activities will help make the thoughts go away. While completing these “rituals” can temporary relief, not performing them can lead to a notable increase in anxiety and even anxiety episodes. Very treatable.
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD affects almost 8 million Americans. Women are more likely than men to experience PTSD. PTSD most often occurs after a significant, or series of, traumatic events. Rape victims experience the highest percentages of PTSD, with about half of victims affected. Individuals experience intense combat have higher occurrences of PTSD than the general population, as do sexually abused children and battered spouses. Very treatable.
  • Anxiety Co-Occurring With Depression. Anxiety is commonly associated with other disorders, referred to as co-occurring or dual diagnosis disorders. Co-occurring disorders include depression, eating disorders, drug addictions, technology addictions, disordered relationships, bipolar disorders, and others. Of those, anxiety with depression is the most common. Co-occurring disorder can make their symptoms more severe and recovery more difficult. It is critical to be diagnosed correctly, and essential that an individual be treated for both disorders. Very treatable.
  • Phobias. Phobias include fear of flying, fear if spiders, fear of the darkness, and other situations, Phobias affect eight percent of adults in the U.S., with women more affected than men.

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.
