Types of Anxiety

Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the US and affect about 40 million American adults every year. Anxiety disorder is also the single biggest clinical risk for the development of depression.

Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) involves excessive worry about ordinary, day-to-day issues, such as health, money, work, and family.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is characterized by excessive orderliness, perfectionism, attention to details, and a need for control in relating to others.

Panic Disorder is characterized by episodic, unexpected panic attacks that occur without a clear trigger.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) involves flashbacks, nightmares, or uncontrollable thoughts that are triggered by experiencing or witnessing a terrifying event.

Social Anxiety is a fear of social situations that involve interaction with other people.

Why a flat annual fee?

Because care for mental health conditions is a long term, on-going treatment that requires more frequent interactions with your medical provider, we charge an annual flat fee for the comprehensive service.

Talk Therapy

Psychotherapy, or Talk Therapy, can be as effective as medication when treating anxiety disorders.

We partner with an e-counseling platform independent from Alpha, to address the mental health needs of our patients.

Treatment can include weekly sessions and unlimited texting with your therapist for an additional fee.

Prescription Medication

Prescription medication has proven to be an effective treatment for anxiety disorders. Each drug affects patients differently, so our Alpha Clinicians will work closely with you to monitor the effects and make adjustments and dosing changes as necessary.

SSRIs

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors slow the process by which serotonin (a substance that nerves use to send messages to one another) is reused by nerve cells that make it. This increases the amount of serotonin available for stimulating other nerves.

Our Alpha Providers prescribe:

Escitalopram

(Generic for Lexapro)

Escitalopram

Decreases the amount of serotonin (hormone responsible for creating an uplifted mood) that is used by some cells, leaving more available to other parts of the brain involved in mood improvement.

Self-Care Advice

Be observant: Maintain a worksheet of your triggers and coping strategies for anxiety.

Get regular exercise: just 30 minutes per day of walking can help boost your mood and improve your health.

Eat a healthy diet that includes these food groups: Vegetables, organ meats, fruits, seafood, legumes, meats, grains, nuts & seeds, and dairy.

Try a relaxing activity for example exploring relaxation or wellness programs, which may incorporate yoga, meditation, or breathing exercises. Schedule routine times for these activities.

Stay connected. You are not alone. Keep in touch with friends and family who can provide emotional support and practical help. Join support groups of like minded people.

Talk to your health care provider or a health professional. Get properly diagnosed and know your options. Make a shared treatment plan with your clinician.

Exercise is a successful alternative for treating depression and anxiety and may treat other mental health conditions, addictions and improve self-esteem.
