Welcome to the Binghamton Anxiety Clinic (BAC)! The BAC is located within
the Psychology Department at Binghamton University and specializes in
evaluation and treatment of anxiety disorders, particularly social phobia
and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Anxiety disorders are the most common mental health problem in the United
States, affecting over 19 million Americans of all ages. In addition, anxiety
disorders are associated with decreased quality of life and personal distress.
Further, anxiety disorders are estimated to cost the United States over 42
billion dollars annually, accounting for almost one third of the entire mental
health costs in America.
At the Binghamton Anxiety Clinic, we are committed to reducing the personal
and societal burdens associated with anxiety disorders. The therapists at
the BAC employ cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) in both individual and
group format. The success of cognitive-behavioral therapy for treating anxiety
disorders is supported by a wealth of research, and we strive to incorporate
the most recent treatment advances.
All of us at the Binghamton Anxiety Clinic are invested in helping people
in our community suffering from anxiety. Please feel free to review the information
presented throughout our website, and if we can be of any further assistance
please contact us at 607-777-5006.
