Social Phobia is an anxiety disorder characterized by overwhelming self-consciousness in everyday social circumstances. Victims of social phobia have an intense, persistent, and chronic fear of being judged, watched or humiliated by their own actions. This fear can be so severe it interferes with work or school and other ordinary activities.
The physical symptoms of Social Phobia include difficulty speaking, blushing, trembling, nausea and profuse sweating. The psychological symptoms may include fear of speaking in public (formally or informally) fear of eating or drinking in front of others, or a general fear of being around other people. These symptoms interfere with daily life and cause the sufferer to become isolated and depressed. Bridges to Recovery helps face these phobias in a safe and therapeutic environment. Our residential treatment is designed to help overcome phobias and to examine and treat any underlying psychiatric disorder.
Specific Phobia is a strong and persistent fear of a single, specific panic inducer. The fear is extreme, irrational, and beyond control. It can be related to animals, the natural environment (heights, water), blood, injection, injury, or specific situations (enclosed spaces, elevators, planes).
