Anxiety Treatment at 10 Acre Ranch
Anxiety can strike men and women alike. The difference: Men are often less likely to seek help and support. If you have anxiety, don’t try to tough it out alone.
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S, impacting roughly 40 million adults. What’s more, about 20 percent of Americans with an anxiety disorder also have an alcohol or other substance use disorder (SUD). And it works the other way, too: Roughly 20 percent of those with an SUD also have an anxiety disorder. At 10 Acre Ranch, our counselors, social workers, and addiction specialists can help you or someone you love manage both diagnoses to optimize the chance of treatment success.
Types of Anxiety Disorders in Men
Men can suffer from many types of anxiety disorder, both minor and major, including:

- Social anxiety disorder
The Symptoms of Anxiety Disorder in Men
We all feel anxious from time to time, whether from a looming deadline or high-pressure work situation. For men with anxiety disorder, however, these anxious feelings can happen for no apparent reason or continue long after a stressful event or situation. And uncontrollable feelings of anxiety can make coping with daily life even more difficult. In general, some telltale signs of anxiety disorder include:
- Physical signs: panic attacks, racing heart, tightening of the chest, quick breathing, restlessness, feeling tense, wound up, or edgy, hot and cold flushes
- Psychological signs: obsessive thinking or excessive fear or worry
- Behavioral signs: avoiding social, work, or school situations that make you feel anxious
Anxiety Treatment in Southern California
At 10 Acre Ranch, we know that having anxiety and a substance use disorder is often a vicious cycle, as the symptoms of one disorder can exacerbate the symptoms of the other. For example, many men mistakenly turn to alcohol or drugs to temporarily dull anxiety. But this type of self-medicating actually worsens symptoms of anxiety.
Fortunately, there are ways to treat both disorders, regardless of which came first. At 10 Acre Ranch, our highly trained staff works with male clients to create a personalized treatment plan that addresses mental health along with substance use disorders to reduce symptoms and to increase the likelihood of long-term recovery. A few of the many programs we use at 10 Acre Ranch to treat anxiety include:
- Group, individual, and family therapy
- Disease education
- Nutritional therapy
- Recreation therapy
