Depression, unlike what most people think, is beyond having a bad mood, being unhappy, or having episodes of stress and grief. However, because of how “common” the symptoms of depression are, such as changes in sleeping and/or eating habits, weight loss or gain, and lack of enthusiasm and motivation, people often see it as just a normal phase in one’s life which will eventually go away if ignored. Needless to say, depression is more than that. It is a chronic mental illness which, if left untreated, may cause you and your family serious problems. At its worst, it may lead the depressed individual to consider, attempt or eventually commit suicide. That is why, even at the early stages of depression, it would be best to seek professional help from a Depression Treatment Center right away. A facility that would be able to provide the most advanced mental health treatment for psychological problems, as well as present an environment that will enable the patient to heal and recover sooner; a facility more like the Psychological Care & Healing Treatment Center.
For people these days, the easiest and most convenient way to treat depression is by taking in anti-depressants. But, convenience does not necessarily equate to efficacy; which means a legitimate Depression Treatment Clinic should intervene. The Psychological Care & Healing Treatment Center may be a far better and more effective option, given that it holds extensive experience in treating mild to severe depression. The treatment facility though, believes that people having a condition such as depression do not call for Depression Residential Treatments; rather, they simply need a more structured routine than what outpatient therapy provides. Equipped with highly sophisticated and adept diagnosticians, they design a treatment program to specifically address the client’s needs and demands, and develop a routine that will utilize as little psychiatric medications as possible. The central part of the program is daily intensive psychotherapy at least 4 –5 times a week, individual therapy and various activities such as Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, Anger Management, Yoga, Art Therapy, Music Therapy, Acupuncture, and Physical Fitness programs.
One of the most common treatments rendered to care for depression is the facility’s Intensive Treatment Program; a program for those who prefer or require immersive psychological treatment in a supportive and caring environment. Alongside depression, the intensive treatment program is also appropriate for clients with bipolar disorder, personality issues, anxiety disorders, psychological trauma, self-injury and other psychological problem that is negatively affecting their lives. In this program, clients are immersed in a treatment environment, starting with an individualized plan, which includes up to five individual psychotherapy sessions and group psychotherapy meetings. This program could last for a minimum of four weeks, for up to two –three months.
The Psychological Care & Healing Depression Treatment Center believes that the way to treat depression is not through drug dependence or withdrawal from friends and family members. Rather, it requires a certain amount of care and a specific level of expertise to truly get your loved one back on track.
