Halten oder Anhalten

I get confused about where or when to use Halten or Anhalten.

Anybody may explain the difference?

Halten an Anhalten literally means the same. But you can#t use "halten" in passive sentences.

I.e.

Ich halte - I am stopping.
Ich halte an - I am stopping.

Passive:

Ich werde angehalten - I am stopped by someone.
Ich werde gehalten - Someone is grabbing me.
