In the modern digital age we’ve seen an epidemic spike in mental health disorders–especially amongst young adults. Record rates of depression, anxiety, suicide, personality disorders, overdoses, increased ADHD and overall malaise. And that was all before Covid; since Covid, depression rates have tripled, anxiety rates have hit record levels and suicides have dramatically increased. According to depression researcher Dr. Steven Ilardi, “Americans are 10 times more likely to have depressive illness than they were 60 years ago…and a recent study found the rate of depression has more than doubled in just the past decade”.

Why the sudden rise in mental health disorders and the need for treatment center for anxiety

Dr. Kardaras and Dr. Ilardi think that they’ve found the answer: Increased rates of depression  and other mental health woes like anxiety and addiction are a byproduct of our modernized, industrialized and urbanized lives. Our love affair with social media and the gadgets and comforts of being a highly technologically evolved society have made us more sedentary, more isolated and put us on a never-ending treadmill of overworking, under-sleeping and hyper-stressing.
 

 

Young people in particular are increasingly depressed, and their identity and ways of thinking are increasingly and adversely shaped and influenced by their social media platforms and the “social validation feedback loops” that are engineered into our lives via social media . So while there is the illusion of connection via social media, research indicates that Millennials are the loneliest generation, with 25% indicating that they don’t have a single friend.  More lonely, stressed, depressed and anxious than ever before, young adults in the digital age are trapped in toxic lifestyles. According to Dr. Ilardi: “We’ve been engineering the activity out of our lives. The levels of bright-light exposure-time spent outdoors-have been declining. The average adult gets just over six and a half hours of sleep a night. It used to be nine hours a night. There’s increasing isolation, fragmentation, the erosion of community. We feel perpetually stressed.”

Help for Anxiety

The more Dr. Ilardi looked at the commonalities of these mentally healthy societies, the more he was able to tease out certain common variables; things like living in a close-knit community, being more physically active, having a greater sense of purpose in their lives, not ruminating on the negative. Armed with his findings, he developed a protocol based on these elements called Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes (TLC) and discovered amazing research results when incorporated into the lives of modern Americans.
 
And there is one other key factor as well: For many, the modern age has also vacuumed out a sense of meaning and purpose out of people’s lives. At Omega Recovery, we that that many of our clients are indeed undergoing an existential crisis of meaning and purpose and turning to toxic habits and behaviors to fill the emptiness. In these cases, existential exploration and finding a sense of life purpose is critical in the healing process. 
 
Dr. Kardaras has incorporated “Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes” into the clinical protocols of Omega Recovery in Austin: Unplugging from electronic devices, developing a sense of healing community, physical exercise within a group/community setting, immersing oneself in nature–all combined with existential exploration and traditional psychotherapy and evidence based modalities like CBT and DBT can literally be life-saving.
 
When all of the abovementioned elements are combined together in treatment, the results are often nothing less than human alchemy– a complete psychic transformation. 

Do You Suffer From Anxiety?

Medications may play a role in the treatment of anxiety disorders in some circumstances. Therapy, alone or in combination with medicine, is the most effective treatment option for many people. The reason for this is that, unlike medicine, counseling equips you with the skills to manage your anxiety both now and in the future.
