Receiving the Best Depression Treatment

Everyone experiences sadness in life, even the well to do. The loss of a loved one, stress at work or in the home and a variety of other things can cause our sadness to become “larger than life” at times. However, depression is a very real and debilitating mental health disorder that affects millions of Americans each year. Fortunately, most cases are minor and are limiting only to a degree. However, for those who have clinical depression, the struggle is very real. It can consume one’s very existence and damage our relationships with others, cost us our job, or worse – end our life. Fortunately, Phoenix Rising’s Treatment Program can help you to cope with feelings of worthlessness, depressive mood swings and keep you drug free while doing it.

What is depression?

Depression is a mood disorder that interferes with a person’s life and often requires treatment. Major depression is a debilitating condition in which a depressive mood can last at least two weeks and interfere with work, sleep and social life. In the cases with children, the depressive symptoms may not be sad, but irritable feelings.

According to the Mayo Clinic, a few symptoms of depression can include:

  • -Changes in appetite and weight
  • -Outbursts of anger, irritability or frustration
  • -Feelings of sadness, tearfulness, emptiness or hopelessness
  • -Trouble thinking, concentrating, making decisions and remembering things
  • -Anxiety, agitation or restlessness

Causes of depression involve biological, environmental and hormonal factors. The age and gender of an individual can also be factors in the form of depression and response to it. For those who seek treatment for depression needs to be more specific, as each person is unique and varies on individual symptoms.

Substance Abuse and Depression Treatment at Phoenix Rising

Depression may be a debilitating condition, but it is treatable with therapy and medication when appropriate. Phoenix Rising appoints a physician to review the patient’s medical history, family history and conducts a psychiatric evaluation before diagnosing a patient with ANY disorder. As mentioned earlier, people who experience depression in daily life may attempt to self-medicate through substances such as drugs or alcohol. This form of self-medication will only cause more problems as the substance abuse can lead to addiction.

If the condition or other mental illness is not treated, the patient will be much more likely to fall into relapse. Phoenix Rising will find the conditions and build a personalized treatment plan. The benefits of receiving treatment from Phoenix Rising include receiving personalized treatment designed for the individual, treating any co-occurring conditions, which could lead to relapse as well as patient support after completing the program.
