In brief: Zoloft (sertraline)
Yes, zoloft (sertraline) is an ssri antidepressant which also has good anti-anxiety properties.
It is not an addictive substance either. The best results come from using it not in isolation, but while also working in psychotherapy on the issues triggering anxiety. Cognitive behavioral therapy is widely researched for this , but other types of psychotherapy are helpful also.
