Yes, nearly all phobias can be cured. According to The National Institute of Mental Health, a phobia is a debilitating or overwhelming fear of something. Phobias result from having an unrealistic feeling of danger associated with a situation or environment. All phobias can be treated because they often manifest in the form of anxiety disorders. The most common treatment for phobias is gradual exposure to the situation, object, or environment that causes fear or anxiety. This approach is called desensitization.
Complex phobias require more structured treatment programs by mental health professionals. The treatment may involve a combination of exposure and counseling, psychotherapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy. Most of the treatments try to train the mind to take a different perspective of the phobia through desensitization and exposure therapy. Some therapists include medication as part of the treatment.
