Is an anxiety retreat right for you?
Anxiety is one of the most common mental health disorders and affects a large number of the population in different ways. Research has discovered that anxiety disorders appear in a large segment of individuals in the United States over the age of 18 and affects 18.1% of the population.1https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5573566/ That is about 40 million Americans each year that are affected by anxiety disorders.
The good news for individuals and their families is that anxiety disorders are highly treatable. However, the problem with treating anxiety disorders is that just 36.9% of people in the US that suffer from the mental health issue receive treatment.2https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/323494
Most people fail to get help because they do not realize there is something wrong. Others fail to receive treatment due to the stigma that most inpatient treatment centers possess. The reputation of an inpatient treatment center can alter the way an individual seeks help and prevent them from ultimately recovering.
The answer to gaining first-class treatment in a safe environment is attending a luxury anxiety retreat that puts the client at the forefront of its work 24-hours a day. An anxiety retreat has the ability to house, treat, and provide long-term healing that teaches a client how to manage their anxiety disorder in the future.
It is very common for a person suffering with anxiety disorder to also have depression or vice versa. The two mental health disorders can come hand in hand. Fifty-percent of all people diagnosed with anxiety disorder also have depression. An anxiety retreat can treat both disorders and put a client onto the road to full recovery.

Why visit an anxiety retreat?
A luxury anxiety retreat has all the tools needed on-site to help a client overcome the disorder. Retreats offer a variety of wellness programs to improve the mind, emotions, and body to better cope with the strains of life.
Unlike a basic inpatient recovery center, an anxiety retreat has developed evidenced-based programs with many featuring both Eastern and Western approaches.
An anxiety retreat can get to the heart of matters as recovery programs are adapted to the client. Programs include group and one-to-one therapy sessions allowing clients to address the deeper issues that create anxiety. Retreats also give clients the chance to address other areas such as physical fitness and mental health through yoga, gym workout sessions, meditation and mindfulness, and outdoor excursions. These additional activities, typically set in beautiful regions of the world, allow clients to escape the everyday triggers and environments that produce anxiety, depression, and other issues.
An anxiety retreat is a way to regain control of life free of the mental health disorders that overtake it. A luxury anxiety retreat is an investment in the future.
What to expect at an Anxiety Retreat
An anxiety retreat is different from traditional rehab in that it’s unlikely to require any form of detox, unless a client has been self-medicating with alcohol, prescription pharmaceuticals or recreational drugs (or any combination). Aside from intensive therapy with some of the best clinical psychotherapists in the World, a luxury mental health retreat may include BioChemical Restoration, Ozone Therapy, High Dose IV NAD, Non Invasive Rejuvenation, Oxygen Therapy, DNA & RNA Repair, Medical Hormone Treatment, Cosmetic Surgery and Spiritual Connection.
Some 90% of a body’s ‘feel-good’ hormone, Serotonin, is found in the gut lining and luxury anxiety retreat clinics detoxify the entire body which can reduce or often eliminate anxiety. By adapting to advanced and personalized nutritional programs, physical activity and relaxation, biochemical cells are less stressed, more concentrated and more productive.
