The Anxiety Disorders Clinic is a superspecialized consultation, assessment and treatment service for people between the ages of 18 and 65 who suffer from one or multiple anxiety disorders:

  • Panic disorder with or without agoraphobia
  • Social phobia
  • Generalized anxiety disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder

Services provided

The clinic team provides short- to medium-term follow-up to stabilize patients and improve their quality of life.

  • Psychiatric and psychological assessments
  • Individual and/or group psychological therapy (group therapy offered in French and English for each anxiety disorder) using a cognitive-behavioural approach (CBT)
  • Consultations to clarify a diagnosis or give an opinion on medication

Once patients are stabilized, they may be referred to the Out-patient Clinic of the Mood, Anxiety and Impulsivity-Related Disorders Program at the Douglas Institute so that they can build on their skills or return to the community under the supervision of a doctor or community organization.

Access to services

To be admitted to the clinic, patients must be referred by a doctor and have a main diagnosis of anxiety disorder. The referral must be sent to the Evaluation Liaison Module (MEL) at the Douglas Institute.
