How is success maintained once treatment is over? What happens if panic symptoms become unmanageable again? What can be done to stay on a path toward recovery?

Typical treatment options for panic disorder include medication, psychotherapy, or a combination of these two choices. Many people with panic disorder follow through with a treatment plan and are able to build the skills they need to manage their condition. Treatment typically ends once the treatment goals have been met and maintained for a period of time. A therapist will help the person to gradually transition out of therapy. Their doctor may even assist them in gradually reducing their medication.

The end of treatment can be a great leap forward on the recovery process. However, the end of treatment can also bring about many unanswered questions. Learn more about how to maintain success once treatment has come to an end:
