Symptoms of Social Anxiety
Medication and psychotherapy are the common choices for treatment when social phobia is the issue, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. When looking for the mental health care treatment program that is right for your family, you need to look for:
- Comprehensive treatment. A mental health treatment program that offers everything you need to heal is essential, especially since you won’t know what will work for you until you begin treatment.
- Personalized care. It’s important to choose a mental health treatment program that takes into consideration your unique experiences and treats all issues contributing to the social anxiety, including trauma and co-occurring disorders.
- Regular check-ins. You will need to check in with your psychiatrist and other therapists regularly to determine whether or not your treatment is moving along at the rate anticipated.
- Aftercare services. If you choose inpatient treatment to start with, you will need to follow up your treatment with aftercare services that help you to stay on track with your treatment.
