Thousands of individuals suffer from depression and don’t even realize it. They feel the symptoms and realize that something is wrong, but they’re just not sure what. Despite boundless evidence indicating the contrary, many still doubt that depression is a real illness. Very often, people who don’t get proper treatment for their depression wind up using drugs and alcohol to cope with the void that this mental disorder has left in their lives. Once an individual starts medicating their depression with drugs and alcohol, the line between their depression and addiction symptoms gets blurred, and they become trapped in a vicious and potentially lethal cycle of mental illness.
Compassionate, Expert Treatment of Depression and Substance Abuse
Our depression recovery treatment program provides patients with quality treatment for depression while treating any co-occurring substance abuse problem they may be suffering from at that same time. Our professionals are specially trained in the treatment of co-occurring disorders and incorporate medication, individualized counseling, detox, and holistic practices into patients’ customized treatment plans. The program is administered and supervised by a trained and credentialed mental health expert. Its primary purpose is to help patients confront and manage their depression without having to lean on substance abuse.
Evidence-Based Clinical Treatment for Depression and other Mood Disorders
We incorporate a variety of therapeutic practices in the treatment of patients’ depression. Our customized combination of traditional care practices with alternative research-based therapies has helped thousands of patients overcome their depression and substance abuse. We recognize the confusion and frustration that comes with having two disorders at once, and we are constantly researching innovative treatments of simultaneous addiction and mood disorder.
Some of the therapies we offer as part of depression treatment include:
Light Sound Neurotherapy (LSN)
A drug-free technique combining light and sound to produce either a relaxing or stimulating response to the brain, LSN has been reported to improve sleep, increase focus, relieve pain and decrease anxiety.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a multi-phase technique that incorporates counseling and rapid visual imaging to help patients cope with depression, anxiety, and trauma.
Neurofeedback uses electronic imaging to provide clear signals of patients’ brain activity in an effort to identify any organic or biological issues that may trigger depression or other mental illness. Introduced in 1920, it has been remarkably effective in identifying patients’ predisposition toward substance abuse.
We also provide pain management care for the physical symptoms of depression and substance abuse withdrawal.
