Hi, anxiety disorders are definitely treatable. It is important to understand the difference. Treatable- long term maintenance required. You may or may not have a reoccurrence of the episode. However it is very manageable. Curable- It does not reoccur.
Next Steps
Combination of counselling and medication is essential. When necessary skills to prevent and deal with anxiety are learnt, medication may be tapered and stopped upon advice of your psychiatrist.
Health Tips
Keep in regular touch with psychiatrist.

A proper assessment of the disorder is required at the first place. Anxiety disorders can be cured with 10-12 sittings with a Clinical Psychologist and medicine, if need be, according to the severity of the disorder.

Anxiety disorders are completely curable. Even with short term treatment. At times long term treatment is required. But you have to take proper medication as advised by a good psychiatrist.
