A study published in the July 2018 issue of the Journal of American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry evaluated youths and young adults after they had completed 12-week treatment for anxiety. The annual evaluations over a period of 5 years with more than 300 youths/young adults, showed that 22 percent remained anxiety-free, while 30 percent remained chronically ill and 48 percent showed signs of anxiety disorder in at least some of the follow-up evaluations.
