Depression can be a leading cause of substance abuse. In many cases, an individual may drink or take drugs to deal with depression. In turn, depression can also feed the addiction. This dual problem can cripple a person who is trying to stop taking drugs or alcohol but doesn’t have the support, education, or resources to find proper treatment. If you are concerned your mental health and addiction issues are intertwined, seek out a depression treatment program Northern California residents rely on.
If this sounds familiar, then we want you to know that there is hope and help from caring and dedicated professionals at Beacon House. We offer depression and substance abuse treatment to help you finally overcome your addiction. It is always important for your therapy team to assess your needs for both addiction and mental health treatment. With a thorough assessment of your situation, we can provide care for your complete wellbeing. With Dual Diagnosis Treatment and holistic addiction therapy, we help you heal from both your depression and your addiction in a non-judgemental and safe environment.
Recognizing the Need for Depression Treatment
Did you know that most people do know the symptoms of depression? Thus, they may not know they are clinically depressed until their depression has created problems in their life. Many people are unable to recognize the signs of depression without professional consultation. If you are unsure whether you are suffering from depression, then you may want to look for signs such as:
- No interest in doing anything or getting out of the house
- Feelings of hopelessness and despair
- Insomnia (can’t sleep) or hypersomnia (sleep all the time)
- Ongoing fatigue or little energy
- A radical change in appetite — eat too much or too little
- Difficulty staying focused or making decisions
If you experience two or more of these symptoms regularly, then you may be suffering from clinical depression. As stated above, depression often precedes or amplifies substance use disorders. Finding treatment for all of your needs is key to put you back on a path to better wellbeing. Beacon House can help you discover the symptoms of depression and how it is affecting your addiction. We can perform a professional evaluation so that we know how to proceed with treatment.
Dual Diagnosis Treatment for Depression
Traditional singular treatment for substance abuse is not always effective on its own. The reason for this is that there are underlying issues that keep triggering the addiction. Therefore, you may only receive therapy that addresses your addiction and not your depression.
Dual diagnosis treatment (also known as co-occurring disorders treatment) seeks to address both the addiction and the depression to form a more holistic approach to recovery.
Beacon House offers comprehensive therapy combined with a serene environment within our dual diagnosis treatment center. Here, you will feel a sense of calmness and empowerment so that you can recover from your depression and your addiction. Dual Diagnosis Treatment can help guide our treatment programs, including:
- Medication-Assisted Treatment
- Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP)
- Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP)
- Residential Drug and Alcohol Detox
