Focus on Anxiety Treatment for Girls
At Evangelhouse Christian Academy, we focus on anxiety in adolescent and teen girls and related issues. At our therapeutic boarding school, your daughter will be in an environment free from the influences of drugs and alcohol, severe sexual issues, and violence.
Anxiety subsets we treat:
GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder) is an anxiety disorder marked by persistent anxiety, increased concern, and tension, even when there is little or no cause for it.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is an anxiety condition marked by recurring, unwanted thoughts (obsessions) and/or repetitive activities (compulsions). Hand washing, counting, checking, and cleaning are common repetitive habits conducted in the hopes of preventing or removing obsessive thoughts. However, executing these so-called “rituals” only gives momentary respite, and failing to do so significantly increases anxiety.
Panic Disorder is an anxiety illness marked by sudden and recurring bouts of great terror, as well as physical symptoms such as chest pain, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness, or stomach discomfort.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is an anxiety condition that can develop after being exposed to a traumatic incident or encounter in which significant bodily injury happened or was threatened. Violent personal attacks, natural or human-caused disasters, accidents, or military conflicts are all examples of traumatic events that can lead to PTSD.
Social Anxiety (or Social Anxiety Disorder) is an anxiety disorder characterized by extreme self-consciousness and overwhelming anxiety in normal social interactions. Social phobia can be restricted to a single circumstance – such as a fear of speaking in official or informal settings, or of eating or drinking in front of others – or, in its most extreme form, can manifest itself nearly wherever a person is among other people.
