LA QUINTA, Calif., Sept. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- According to The Anxiety Disorders Association of America, anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older. These disorders include, but are not limited to panic attacks, panic disorder and agoraphobia. Unfortunately, worried about the associated stigma, many people suffer in silence without seeking any help. That's where Matthew Wagner comes in.
Wagner is a former sufferer of anxiety, panic attacks, and agoraphobia. Through his experience, Wagner indicates that he was able to research and try a vast amount of strategies, techniques, and treatments. By putting together an approach that doesn't leave the "gaps" that he experienced when using many modalities, Wagner's approach is meant to cover all bases of recovery.
Wagner provides an interactive approach "as a way of paying back and helping sufferers just as I was helped by highly competent people". By starting out with a website, adding interactivity and other technology, Wagner delivers help to sufferers of anxiety, panic attacks, and agoraphobia.
Demonstrating to people that recovery is possible and well within their grasp, Wagner indicates that his "holistic approach" encompasses sound principles to assist sufferers with taking charge of their recovery. Wagner provides a myriad of ways for people to handle their physiology, while at the same time using evidenced based practices to continually restructure their thinking. Along the way to recovery, Wagner found many approaches worked in the short term, but "long term results are key". Wagner closes the gap here too.
Wagner indicates that his approach is not meant to supplant therapy by a mental health professional but to work in unison with it. "Part of an all-encompassing approach, in my opinion, involves seeking the help of a qualified professional. However people can sometimes outsource their faculties. Recovery means taking charge of your life including your mental health."
