We Treat A Wide Range of Patients who
suffer from Mental Health Disorders

Whether you or a loved one are struggling with mental health issues, we are qualified to be able to help you find recovery.  

Depression is far more serious than just a stretch of sadness.  Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) is a common mood disorder characterized by persistent feelings of hopelessness and sadness. Depression is one of the most common mental health disorders in the world, with over 264 million suffering from some form of depression.

For some patients, depression comes in a milder form called dysthymia, and episodes can be triggered by stress or various life events. Meanwhile, MDD, also known as chronic depression, can come without warning and be so severe that it robs people of their ability to function.

Depression can be challenging to treat. However, there is hope. With the right balance of medications, psychotherapies, and holistic therapies, those struggling with depression can manage their condition.

If you suspect you or someone in your life is suffering from depression, enrolling in a residential depression treatment center can help. Contact Enhance Health Group for more information.

What Causes Depression?

Many people associate depression with a mysterious chemical imbalance. However, the disease is much more complex. Some new research suggests that depression isn’t simply brought on by having too little or too many specific brain chemicals. 

There are millions – even billions – of chemical reactions that are responsible for our moods, reactions, and perception of the world around us. With this degree of complexity, no two people experience depression exactly the same. Because of this, finding the right treatment can be incredibly complicated. Different people respond better to different forms of treatment, and there is no one-size-fits-all cure. 

While depression can affect anyone in every stage of life, some risk factors do influence one’s susceptibility to depression. 

Common Risk Factors
That Influence Depression

Depression can upend anyone ––even people who appear to lead a peaceful, loving, and secure life, but some are more at risk. 

Researchers believe these factors may play a role in developing depression:

Biochemistry

The disparity in certain brain chemicals and chemical imbalances may enhance the symptoms of depression.

Genetics

Depression and suicidal ideation can run in families. For example, if someone’s parent has some form of depressive disorder, their child has a 70 percent chance of experiencing the illness sometime in their lifetime.

Personality

People who have low self-esteem, who easily become enraged or overwhelmed by everyday stresses, or who have a pessimistic outlook on the world appear to be more likely to be diagnosed with depression.

Environmental Factors

Your environment can trigger a depressive episode. Ongoing exposure to neglect, abuse, poverty, or other tumultuous circumstances may make some people more susceptible to depression.

Inpatient Depression
Treatment

When the time comes to overcome a depressive episode, residential treatment is one of the most effective forms of treatment available. Treatment for depression begins with diagnosis. If a patient isn’t already diagnosed, doctors and psychotherapists will assess for additional underlying mental illnesses. Often, other conditions like substance abuse disorder co-occur with depression and may cause or contribute to the depression. Once all factors are identified, treatment can begin.

Attending an inpatient treatment center allows patients to invest all their time and energy into getting better. With the noise and chaos of the outside world far away, residential depression treatment gives individuals a greater chance at success. 

Many people who suffer from depression can overcome it with medication and counseling alone. However, there are cases where depression is so severe that a patient may pose a physical threat to themselves or others. When depression becomes life-threatening or insurmountable, residential depression treatment should be the preferred treatment option.

What To Expect

Our residential depression treatment center leverages various proven therapies.

Individual Counseling

Talk therapy gives you the space to discuss your feelings, thoughts, life, and obstacles with a qualified counselor. There are many types of talk therapy used to treat depression, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic Therapy. 

In typical circumstances, therapists will act as a sounding board and neutral mediator between the patient and the beast of depression. Therapy gives you a chance to understand how depression affects your life, identify triggers, and develop coping skills.

Medication Management

There are four main categories of medications used to treat depression disorders: while antidepressants (SSRIs) are the most common, anti-anxiety medications, antipsychotic medications, and mood-stabilizing medications can also offer relief – especially if a patient’s depression is occurring alongside another mental health disorder. 

We ensure all of our patients receive the right medication balance.

Holistic Therapies

We provide integrated therapies designed to treat the whole person. Yoga, art therapy, meditation, and music therapy are just some of the holistic services we offer. By participating in these activities, we hope our clients can connect to themselves and find joy in their creativity.

How To Begin

To take the first step toward freedom from depression, begin with your primary care physician. He or she will help you determine whether seeing a psychiatrist is the appropriate next step. Once you’ve scheduled a preliminary appointment, your new mental health professional will assess your symptoms and risk factors. With this information, they will decide if residential depression treatment may be appropriate for your case.
