Are there places that admit you in a program for A/D, and if so has anyone done a program like that? I really feel like I need to go through a program, I would like to find a center that does that, I would really like to stay in one, to get away and worry about nothing but getting better, I feel it's got to that point, I feel I need that type of setting to get better and I think it will work the fastest and the best.

There are a lot of private programs and clinics that offer these types of programs.

You would have to research to find one in your area or ask your Pdoc. They come with big price tags. :)

I was just in a 10 day program. Well you can go for 10 -30 days at this place, depending on your condition and stuff. I personally loved it. It was the best thing I've ever done and my insurance covered A LOT of it, so the out of pocket expense wasn't bad. It was a great experience for me. Would go there again in a heartbeat. I'm thinking that most psychiatric hospitals (Large hospitals usually have them) have out patient programs. The one i was in was 6 hours a day, and the people there (both patient and therapist) were amazing people. I did notice, that most people there were there for depression, but all the workshops and therapy sessions were very helpful for anxiety and panic (thats why i went).

It sounds like the place you might wanna go. I hope that you live in a city that has something like this. I dont know if some just try and dope you up, but the one i went to was all about CBT and other styles of coping skills. There was also a psychiatrist assigned to you that monitors your meds ( if you need or are taking any) and is there for you any time of the day (I even called mine on a saturday one time cause i was having panic and she returned my call in 15 minutes and helped me out). You also have a Therapist that is also available for 1 on 1 at any time. It was really great, and i hope you can find a resource like the one i went to. Also, it was a safe environment for me to go to everyday. I really loved it. It took a few days, but looking back I'm so happy i went.

Best of luck, i know what you're going through.

Thanks Dan that was some helpful info, I looked around the internet and didn't see anything around here, I'm going to keep looking, I'm just really tired of pretending nothing is wrong and keeping it bottled up, I need help and I need to stop just dealing w/ it myself, thanks again for the info.

Sorry, I thought you meant a full in house treatment center as you posted above you really would like to "stay" in one.
 
Here is a link to one that I know of. http://www.menningerclinic.com/
I agree Dan gave you great info. J

I'm open to both of the treatments, I really would like to go to a in house one, but I don't guess that's really possible since they cost so much.
