Depression Treatment

We understand you may be hurting. You may feel alone, suffering under an unbearable sense of grief, sadness, hopelessness, or isolation. But you are not alone.

In the United States, 16 million Americans battle depression every year, according to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). Individuals with depression fight against persistent feelings of loneliness, pessimism, and worthlessness that cause normal daily interaction with family and friends to seem daunting.

Depression affects everyone differently, but thankfully this mental health disorder is treatable. In our residential treatment programs and outpatient treatment programs, we provide the effective depression treatment needed to ensure sustained recovery.

What Does Depression Look Like?

Experiencing even some of the symptoms of depression for a prolonged period may be an indicator that seeking depression treatment could be helpful. Some signs of depression include the following mental health and physical health symptoms.

Major Depressive Disorder and Persistent Depressive Disorder

While the symptoms listed above are serious, major depressive disorder, or clinical depression, is even more severe and can be life-threatening without depression treatment. Major depressive disorder is characterized by the following symptoms:
For many people struggling with major depressive disorder, symptoms are typically severe enough to cause noticeable problems in their daily lives (e.g., work or school), social activities, or relationships. Suffering from major depression, some individuals may feel miserable without understanding why, which is why it’s vital to seek depression treatment at a facility like Clearview.
Another type of depressive disorder is persistent depressive disorder (PDD), or dysthymia, which is a mild to moderate depression that lasts for two years or longer. Individuals with this type of chronic depression may also have episodes of major depression.

Unfortunately, there’s not an absolute cure for depression yet. However, even the most severe depression is treatable. Learning about your type of depression through clinical consultation can help you understand your symptoms and determine any possible underlying causes for what you’re experiencing. Medication as well as beneficial life changes can aid in the treatment of depression, including developing restful sleep patterns, increasing exercise, improving nutrition, establishing a strong support network, and finding ways to reduce/eliminate stress. Seeking depression therapy at a depression treatment facility like Clearview can provide long-lasting relief.
At some point, almost everyone experiences some sort of depression. Depression affects both men and women; however, it’s twice as common among women than among men, according to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH). Studies show that 20% of women experience at least one episode of depression in their lifetimes, and researchers believe that certain biological, hormonal, and psychosocial factors unique to women may be linked to higher rates of depression. Clearview provides depression treatment programs for all genders to help them break free from their symptoms and lead a happier and healthier life.
