Quoted From:

"If you have Panic Disorder, you know what it"s like to be caught off guard by an overwhelming sense of dread or terror. You"ve experienced the terrifying physical symptoms: lightheadedness, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, perspiration, blurred or distorted vision, or feeling a detachment from reality. The fear of experiencing those symptoms again can leave you on edge or force you to change your life to avoid possible triggering situations.
Panic disorder is characterized by the unexpected occurrence of panic attacks followed by at least one month of persistent worry about additional panic attacks and/or significant change in maladaptive behavior related to those attacks.
Despite the overwhelming impulse to escape and then avoid, we know these behaviors ultimately lead to greater distress and an increase in panic attacks. As scary as it feels, facing those fears through Exposure Response Prevention Therapy is the best treatment for Panic Disorder. With the help of our trained therapists, you will withstand your fear and come out the other side a stronger person, more tolerant of feelings and thoughts previously avoided.
Never be blindsided by fear again."
