We want to help you to understand the root causes of your anxiety problems. Once you understand why you are anxious, you can take steps to overcome the related symptoms. These steps vary between individuals, and include healthy lifestyle changes, holistic remedies, and prescription medications. While drugs and medication can effectively treat anxiety symptoms, they are not always the best solutions. Historically, opioids have been prescribed to patients by doctors with good intentions, but who were not fully informed on the negative effects of opioids, including addiction.
