Agoraphobia is a crippling fear of open spaces. The patient is labelled as agoraphobic if he or she avoids such spaces or is scared of going out of the house. Certain questionnaires are used to confirm the severity. During treatment the patient is made to rationally understand the illness and taught techniques to alleviate anxiety when it arises. Medicines like anti-depressants are also used in conjunction with CBT.
