About the Center:

The first hospital-affiliated facility of its kind in the country, The Anxiety & Phobia Treatment Center was founded in 1971 by Dr. Manuel Zane.  Dr. Zane pioneered the cognitive-behavioral treatment of anxiety disorders, with its successful application of supportive exposure therapy.

We can help. And we understand. Many of our staff members have experienced anxiety and phobias in the past. They know how debilitating these conditions can be. They also know that with the appropriate help, people can overcome their fears and live productive and positive lives!

Supportive group therapy and ongoing educational groups constitute the cornerstone of treatment. Utilizing exposure therapy, counselors are available to work with patients in the specific situations that cause anxiety.
