Stress is a normal physiological response to something that has caused us to feel fearful, overwhelmed, or out of control. When stressed, our body produces the hormones cortisol and adrenaline which prompts the fight or flight response. However, if we find ourselves in a chronic state of stress it can be highly damaging to both mental and physical health. When chronic stress is causing impairment or damage to health, a residential treatment center can be the appropriate level of care.
