depression treatment programAlmost all people have experienced depression at some point in their lives. However, for many, it is a serious mental health disorder. Nearly 7% of the adult population in America is affected by some form of depression. Treatment for this condition is proven to be effective, and 80% of patients who seek treatment notice an improvement in their symptoms within weeks.

Unfortunately, many people struggling with depression do not seek treatment. There are numerous reasons why people may not get the treatment they need:

Their condition is viewed as “a phase” by themselves and their family. Family members may dismiss their loved one’s depression diagnosis because of social stigma around the condition, a lack of knowledge on how it affects a patient’s life, and denial of the severity of their loved one’s condition.

Many people think they can work through it on their own. They don’t believe that a professional depression treatment program is necessary–they view it as an issue of willpower or attitude, not the mental health disorder it truly is.

At Clear Recovery Center, we offer outpatient depression treatment through our virtual intensive outpatient program (IOP). Call 866.680.0969 for more information.

What Is Depression?

Depression affects individuals in many ways, both mentally and physically. Depression is an ongoing medical condition. It negatively impacts patients’ everyday lives. It can take a variety of forms, which include:
  • Major depressive disorder
  • Persistent depressive disorder
  • Psychotic disorder
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Seasonal affective disorder
There is no precise cause for these forms. However, environmental and psychological factors can increase a person’s likelihood of developing this condition. Some common causes of this medical disorder are:

A significant life event

The loss of a job or personal relationship can contribute to depression.

Traumatic events

The death of a loved one, for example, can increase the likelihood of depression.

Genetics

Patients often have family members with the same condition.

Our Virtual IOP Offers Online Depression Treatment

Despite the number of people affected by depression, each person struggles in their own unique way. Our team at Clear Recovery Center conducts a thorough mental health assessment before beginning outpatient depression treatment. The assessment pinpoints potential causes of a patient’s depression. With the evaluation completed, Clear Recovery Center offers a diagnosis.

We often diagnose depression as mild, moderate, or severe. We also determine the specific type of disorder. From there, we decide on a course of action:

1. Lifestyle Changes

Clear Recovery Center’s Virtual Program is perfect for those experiencing mild depression. Our team recommends specific dietary plans and exercise routines. We also provide resources on how to engage in and avoid certain situations. Our guidance is intended to alleviate a patient’s physical and mental symptoms.

2. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

CBT is great for those suffering from a variety of mental health disorders, including depression. This evidence-based approach has been proven effective. Patients discover how to view their lives positively. They learn to alter any pessimistic ways of thinking and change toxic behaviors.

3. Interpersonal Therapy

Interpersonal therapy is vital for recovering patients. It helps them manage their personal and professional relationships. Improving social bonds helps patients alleviate their symptoms. Interpersonal therapy takes different forms, such as individual therapy, group therapy, or family therapy.
