This is a fear
of leaving a comfortable place. This could include your car, houses
you deem safe or in the worse case scenario, only your house. When
this disorder is left untreated, the individual could become housebound
or limited to only staying inside of their house or not beyond their
own mailbox. For people who are housebound we do offer appointments
where we will go to the individual's house to engage in treatment.
HOME BASED THERAPY. This disorder is very treatable and there
is often a high success rate when the person seeks treatment. For
some people, they have this disorder, but are able to function but
will have to white knuckle it, or go about their lives with an uncomfortable
level of anxiety. We also would recommend Dr. Katkin's book on anxiety,
The Anxiety Trap which has been immensely
helpful in leading people to their own recovery and/or complimenting
their current therapy.
