Recovery Formula has updated its industry leading anxiety quiz, and strongly recommends CBT to its users. Recovery Formula offers one of the most highly regarded, comprehensive anxiety questionnaires that determine anxiety type(s), severity, and statistics on their anxiety experience.
RecoveryFormula.com also focuses its review efforts on determining the most effective solutions for anxiety, both at home and away from home. It examines some of the factors that go into a successful anxiety recovery formula, which typically includes self-help techniques and learning experiments that help develop stronger stress coping mechanisms and combat habits that create further anxiety.
Self-help techniques are the cornerstone of RecoveryFormula.com’s mission. Its goal is to find anxiety recovery solutions that are best suited for both different forms of anxiety, and the unique individuals that are struggling with it.
“Any treatment, from medication to therapy to alternative medicine, still in many ways begins at home,” states Recovery Formula specialist Rachel Ramos. “There needs to be greater effort within the mental health community to enhance home-based treatments, because any successes or setbacks are going to be seen at home first."
But Recovery Formula also believes in treatments outside of self-help solutions. That is why Recovery Formula has also decided to strongly recommended Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or “CBT,” to those that struggle with anxiety.
Review of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy: What is CBT?
Cognitive behavioral therapy is a methodology used by clinical psychologists to address mental health disorders, including anxiety, depression, and addiction. Its results are strongest for anxiety and stress, where it consistently scores better than competing therapeutic options as a long term treatment.
Its therapy focuses on two distinct parts of anxiety and mental health:
- Cognitions – Cognitions are the negative thoughts and mental patterns that occur before, during, and after anxiety.
- Behaviors – Behaviors are the actions and activities that people undertake when they struggle with a mental health challenge.
The therapist works directly with the client, breaking thought patterns and altering behaviors that contribute to further anxiety. Strategies within CBT include self-monitoring, imagery reversal, and relaxation training, among many others.
Unlike other modalities, such as psychodynamic theory, CBT focuses less on unprovable correlations with the past, and more on the present and future. This makes it easier for clients to implement the changes recommended by the therapist and contributes to the success of the treatment.
Comprehensive reviews of CBT have found that it is an effective long term strategy for those with anxiety disorders. A meta-analysis published in 2012 of 269 different research papers found that “The efficacy of CBT for anxiety disorders was consistently strong,” and “it is clear that the evidence-base of CBT is enormous.”
By combining the mental with the physical, CBT is currently the most successful therapeutic technique available. It has a high treatment success rate, carefully planned sessions, and it is backed by substantial research that validates its use.
CBT and Anxiety Recovery at Home
For those that can afford the cost of therapy, CBT is a logical and effective anxiety solution, and one that those that score high on their Recovery Formula anxiety test should strongly consider as a way to address their mental health.
Some find that therapy can be prohibitively expensive, and represent an emotional commitment that they are not prepared to make. Recovery Formula does believe that it is possible for anxiety to be reduced at home, using some of the principles of CBT, and integrating stress reduction strategies from some of the world’s great thought leaders.
The most common challenge that makes at-home anxiety recovery formulas work is the individual’s physical and mental commitment. The comfort of home pushes people to fall back to their old habits, and the “busy” nature of one’s life means that there is often little accountability, as anxiety recovery takes a back seat to other more pressing tasks.
But those who commit themselves successfully to an at-home treatment do often find that they can reduce – and possibly eliminate – their anxiety successfully as a result. Recovery Formula believes in educating all of those that struggle with anxiety on which strategies work, which do not, and the personal involvement necessary to see real results.
