This chapter addresses treating anxiety disorders in primary care settings. Anxiety disorders are prevalent in primary care patients, often comorbid with chronic health conditions, and associated with significant disability and functional impairment. Integrated primary care is the integration of behavioral health services into primary care settings and is increasingly common in response to recent health care reforms. Most efforts to integrate behavioral health services into primary care have focused on depression. The chapter provides an overview of the primary care behavioral health (PCBH) model and the available literature on screening and treating anxiety disorders in primary care. It presents research on computer-assisted CBT and collaborative care approaches to treating anxiety disorders in primary care, describes the challenges of detecting and treating anxiety disorders among primary care patients and successfully implementing sustainable management of anxiety disorders in primary care, and offers suggestions for treating anxiety disorders within a PCBH model.
