Anxiety Treatment in Topeka

Anxiety Treatment Program

Anxiety help is available

It’s normal to get anxious and even scared sometimes. A lot of children and teens, however, have persistent and intense worry about everyday situations and events, like just going to school, experiencing a storm or speaking in front of people. Anxiety treatment in Topeka at Family Service & Guidance Center can help children and teens by providing guidance in a structured, safe environment.

Step1 out of 2 steps

Feelings of anxiety are hard to control, interfere with daily activities and are out of proportion to the actual situation.

Children may avoid places, situations and people to prevent these scary feelings. Symptoms may start during childhood or the teen years and continue into adulthood.

Step2 out of 2 steps

Anxiety treatment helps children and teens by gradually exposing them to the things or situations they avoid in a safe, structured environment. The gradual exposure reduces the child’s fear and decreases avoidance.

Most children who participate in FSGC’s Anxiety Treatment Program complete their course of care in just 16-18 sessions.
