Experiencing anxiety is a normal response most people feel in response to specific circumstances. However, for some people, their anxiety never seems to go away fully. They can become overstressed, fearful, worried, or even distressed because their anxiety is starting to affect their daily routines and lives. At Iris Healing, we offer comprehensive anxiety treatment in Los Angeles personalized to fit the unique needs of each person to help them overcome their anxiety and effectively manage their condition.

What Is Anxiety Treatment?

Anxiety treatment in Los Angeles at Iris Healing involves performing a thorough evaluation and assessment during an initial consultation. Our licensed psychiatrists will ask about your current concerns, worries, and other issues you are facing. They will ask about your medical and family histories as well. 

Using this information, and working with you, we create a personalized care and treatment plan using evidence-based and holistic therapies that will benefit you the most. Medications may also be used when they are appropriate for your particular situation and needs.

Types of Anxiety Disorders

According to NIMH, over 40 million, or 19.1% of adults 18 or older, are affected by some type of anxiety disorder. Some of the different types of anxiety disorders they experience include:

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
  • Social Anxiety Disorder
  • Panic Disorders
  • Phobias/Fears
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Our Anxiety Treatment Programs in Los Angeles

Iris Healing offers several different programs and levels of care for anxiety treatment in Los Angeles. Determining which level of care and program is best for you is based on your initial evaluation and assessment as well as your current mental health. If you are suffering from co-occurring mental health and substance use disorders, this is also taken into consideration when selecting the appropriate treatment program.  


Detox is the first step to recovery from alcohol and substance use disorders. When someone also has a co-occurring anxiety disorder, they will begin with detox treatment to help their body start healing from alcohol and substance use. 

Residential Program

Our residential program is for people with severe anxiety disorders and those who could potentially harm themselves or others. We provide round-the-clock medical supervision and care with highly structured and intensive therapeutic modalities. 

Partial Hospitalization Program

Our partial hospitalization program (PHP) provides the same level of care as our residential program. The primary difference is individuals have the flexibility to return home or to a supportive or sober living facility in the evening. This level of care is well-suited for those transitioning from our residential program, as well as those who do not require 24/7 supervision and monitoring. 

Intensive Outpatient Program

Our intensive outpatient program (IOP) provides more flexibility than our PHP. It offers structured and intensive therapeutic treatment. Individuals usually attend half-day sessions several times weekly at times that best suit their needs. This level of care makes it possible to manage outside commitments, such as work or school. IOPs are for people who have a strong support system outside treatment with mild to moderate anxiety disorders or those transitioning from a higher level of care. 

Outpatient Rehab

Outpatient rehab for anxiety disorders offers the most flexibility. Individuals can work, attend school, and take care of other personal responsibilities. Treatment sessions are scheduled several times weekly, at times that work best for the individual. Sessions usually last for an hour or two at each visit. This level of care is ideal for people who need ongoing therapy and support to manage their anxiety disorder and those with mild anxiety disorders. 

How Is Anxiety Treated?

At Iris Healing, anxiety is treated using a variety of evidence-based and holistic therapeutic modalities, including: 

  • TMS: TMS (transcranial magnetic stimulation) is a non-invasive and safe form of holistic therapy that uses magnetic waves to target specific regions in the brain responsible for anxiety symptoms. TMS helps stimulate these areas to facilitate healing and alleviate symptoms.  
  • Neurofeedback: Neurofeedback is another non-invasive and safe form of holistic therapy that measures and monitors brainwave activity to identify changes in patterns that cause anxiety disorders. This information is used to create a personalized care plan.  
  • Biofeedback: Another holistic therapy is biofeedback. It helps people learn how to regulate their breathing, heart rate, and muscle tension to alleviate anxiety symptoms. It is often used with neurofeedback to help people better visualize how their brainwave activity changes when they use biofeedback. 
  • CBT: CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) helps people identify their negative behaviors, thoughts, and feelings, and learn how to change them by shifting their perceptions of them into positive behaviors, thoughts, and emotions. 
  • DBT: DBT (dialectical behavioral therapy) helps people learn how to regulate their emotional responses by accepting uncomfortable thoughts, feelings, and behaviors using various techniques to overcome them.
