“Worrying is carrying tomorrow’s load with today’s strength—carrying two days at once. It is moving into tomorrow ahead of time. Worrying doesn’t empty tomorrow of its sorrow, it empties today of its strength.” – Corrie Ten Boom

Treatment Discover Your Inner Strength in Paradise

At Maui Recovery, we recognize the profound impact that anxiety can have on your overall health and well-being. Anxiety constitutes a prevalent mental health challenge affecting a significant portion of the U.S. population and often coexists with substance abuse disorders.

According to research, individuals with a lifetime of major depression have a 16.5% alcohol use disorder, and 18% experience a substance abuse disorder. These statistics underscore the widespread influence of anxiety across diverse demographics in the United States, emphasizing the critical importance of accessible and comprehensive mental health care and support services. 

Rather than simply addressing surface-level symptoms, our holistic approach delves into the underlying causes of anxiety. We focus on healing the mind, body, and soul by offering a unique combination of traditional therapeutic methods and experiential therapies.

Informed by the rich cultural heritage of Hawaii, our dedicated clinicians expertly utilize this integrative approach to foster resilience, balance, and a renewed sense of purpose for our clients on their journey to recovery.

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety disorders are a range of conditions marked by excessive and persistent worry, fear, and nervousness. These disorders, which can significantly disrupt daily life, are prevalent among American adults, affecting 27.3% of those over 18 years old. Women are disproportionately impacted, with 30.8% experiencing anxiety, compared to 23.5% of men. 

Notably, anxiety disorders are particularly widespread among LGBTQ+ individuals, who face these challenges at a rate of 56.7%, markedly higher than the 24.8% prevalence among straight individuals. These numbers underscore the importance of recognizing anxiety as a serious and common condition.

Types of Anxiety Disorders

  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD): Excessive anxiety and worry about various topics, events, or activities, lasting more than six months.
  • Panic Disorder: Recurrent unexpected panic attacks, sudden periods of intense fear, and physical symptoms like heart palpitations and dizziness.
  • Social Anxiety Disorder (Social Phobia): Intense fear of social or performance situations where individuals feel they may be judged, embarrassed, or rejected.
  • Specific Phobias: Excessive and irrational fear of specific objects or situations, such as heights, animals, or flying.
  • Agoraphobia: Fear of being in situations where escape might be difficult, or help might not be available in the event of panic symptoms.
  • Separation Anxiety Disorder: Excessive fear or anxiety concerning separation from home or attachment figures.
  • Selective Mutism: Consistent failure to speak in certain social situations despite speaking in other situations.
  • Substance/Medication-Induced Anxiety Disorder: Anxiety symptoms directly attributable to substance abuse, medication, or exposure to a toxin.

Although anxiety can be debilitating, effective treatments and supportive care can help manage symptoms, allowing individuals to regain a sense of control and peace in their lives.

Treat Anxiety with Surf Therapy and Adventure Therapy

Surf therapy and adventure therapy offer numerous benefits for individuals undergoing treatment for anxiety:

Physical Exercise

Both surf therapy and adventure therapy involve physical activities that promote fitness, strength, and overall well-being. Engaging in regular physical exercise can help reduce symptoms of anxiety by releasing endorphins, which are natural mood lifters.

Stress Reduction

Being in nature and participating in outdoor activities can significantly reduce stress and anxiety levels. Surfing, hiking, and other adventure therapies offer individuals an opportunity to escape from daily stressors and connect with the natural environment, promoting relaxation and inner peace.

Mindfulness and Presence

Surfing and adventure activities require individuals to be fully present in the moment, focusing on the task at hand. This mindfulness practice can help individuals with anxiety learn to let go of worries about the past or future and instead focus on the present moment, promoting mental clarity and emotional well-being.

Confidence Building

Overcoming challenges in surfing and adventure activities can boost self-confidence and self-esteem. As individuals achieve their goals and conquer their fears, they gain a sense of accomplishment and empowerment, which can help alleviate anxiety and improve overall mental health.

Social Support

Participating in surf therapy and adventure therapy often involves group activities, providing opportunities for social interaction and support. Connecting with others who share similar experiences can reduce feelings of isolation and loneliness commonly associated with anxiety.

Exposure Therapy

Surf therapy and adventure therapy offer opportunities for exposure to new experiences and environments in a supportive and controlled setting. Gradual exposure to feared situations can help individuals with anxiety learn to manage their symptoms and build resilience over time.

Surf therapy and adventure therapy offer holistic approaches to anxiety treatment, addressing physical, emotional, and social aspects of well-being while promoting personal growth and empowerment.
