An estimated 1 in 10 adults in the United States has reported suffering from depression. Many people diagnosed with depression try to self-medicate with drugs or alcohol. This often makes the problem worse. The crash after the high can be devastating for those with a pre-existing depressive condition.
The goal of the depression dual diagnosis program at Newsong Recovery is to identify and address the root causes of the depression and provide each patient with the tools necessary to empower them to achieve long-term recovery.
Depressive disorder, frequently referred to simply as depression, is more than just feeling sad or going through a rough patch. It’s a serious mental health condition that requires understanding and medical care. Although it is treatable, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Common treatments used at Newsong Recovery include:
● Cognitive behavioral therapy
● Family-focused therapy
● Interpersonal therapy
● Psychodynamic therapy
● Psychoeducation and support groups
● Antidepressant medications
● Mood stabilizers
● Antipsychotic medications
● Transcranial magnetic stimulation
● Light therapy
To create a successful outcome, depression dual diagnosis treatment will be finely tailored to your own unique, specific needs.
