Depression Treatment Centers California

Almost 20 million American adults struggle with depression in a year, and proper care and treatment for depression are necessary for most of them. Patients looking for depression treatment centers in California should pay attention to several aspects when selecting.

Several types of treatment are available, but they don't provide long term recovery for all. Many people don succeed also because they didn't choose the best treatment program for their needs. Your loved ones suffering from depression should choose the best rehab center right from the start for complete and long-lasting recovery.

What's to say about depression treatment centers California?

As California is the biggest state, it makes sense that it also provides the highest number of centers for addiction, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and other co-occurring disorders.

Despite what one may think, depression isn't a momentary mood or feel. We all have our moments and feel under the weather at times; when you wake up every morning unable to start your day, lacking the energy, and unable to have a positive view on life, you deal with depression.

What's the mere definition of depression?

Depression is a severe mental illness and has nothing to do with one's weakness/power. A severe depressive disorder is widespread in the United States, and the National Institute of Mental Health estimates that more than 16% of U.S. adults will go through an episode of clinical depression within a lifetime.

Moreover, depression happens at any age, no matter your social status or ethnicity. It's not normal to deal with Depression, and you should look for help anytime you or your loved one struggles with depression. The symptoms are sometimes obvious; you need to pay attention.

What Symptoms of Depression should worry you?

The tricky part about depression is that it's not always easy to differentiate between having a bad mood and being depressed. Should you or your loved one experience several of the following symptoms, you need to look for professional help and decide between the several types of depression treatment. You shouldn't self-medicate nor avoid depression treatment; depression never goes away on its own.

Here are some of the most typical signs of depression:

  • Poor concentration
  • Extreme sadness
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Lost/increased appetite
  • Lost interest in favorite activities
  • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Guilt
  • Lost interest in caring for self (poor hygiene)
  • Constant and severe fatigue
  • Poor confidence

What leads to depression?

There's no such thing as just one cause for depression. Trauma, substance use (depression can develop as a co-occurring condition due to addiction to drugs, alcohol), stress, brain chemistry, hormone changes, and physical illness may cause depression.

No matter the cause, proper depression treatment for you or your loved one is essential for recovery, as well as relapse prevention.

Are our treatment programs different in California?

Many things are setting California apart from other states, and the variety of depression treatment is one of them. Patients drive to California all the time as it's the place where innovative approaches are developed all the time.

Traditional treatment programs and alternative options with a holistic approach to Depression, substance abuse, mood disorder, and co-occurring depression and mental issues are becoming the norm in the sunny state. Residential treatment or intensive outpatient program, conventional or holistic, you will have the possibility to choose what's right for you or your loved one. It will help if you become more aware of what you truly need.

Residential or outpatient treatment?

Should you look at the options, you will see that two main categories will stand out. The severity of your symptoms, whether you're also dealing with an addiction or not, and the support you can have from the family will help you find the best depression treatment.

Residential treatment center

Patients struggling with clinical depression, addiction, or who have tried different therapies several times without succeeding, will have to choose a residential depression treatment center. They will have to put their life on hold and get all support from family, friends, and employers to take distance from daily tasks and responsibilities.

For these patients, the chance for success is higher when they stay away from possible triggers and get to focus exclusively on their illness.

Outpatient, intensive treatment

Outpatient, intensive treatment addresses patients who've completed a treatment program within a residential treatment center. Recovery doesn't happen overnight, and it's a long time process, especially if the depression or co-occurring depression is severe.

Traditional or non-traditional treatment?

For decades, medication and evidence-based therapies were used for people with symptoms of depression. Whether the patient would also deal with alcohol addiction, anxiety, PTSD, or other mental health issues, medication management was the no.1 treatment program.

Years went by, and it became obvious that the high rate of relapse and improvement only for a short amount of time were constant with traditional treatment. People slowly moved away from conventional methods and looked for better and more natural programs.

Alternative/non-conventional therapies have slowly caught the patient's attention. Many of these programs would use both traditional methods (medicated) and natural therapies. In contrast, others managed to stick to their fundamental principles, developing non-medicated treatment programs for people with clinical depression.

Why choose our Holistic Sanctuary?

At our depression treatment center, Holistic Sanctuary, you will benefit from the most innovative methods, with complete dedication to non-medicated methods and principles of recovery,

We only use natural products and methods for a lifetime recovery not only the mind but also the body and the soul of the patient. Traditional treatment would only address a part of the problem, causing other medical conditions to complete recovery. Patients following traditional treatment often develop an addiction to their medications, making the recovery process a lot more difficult.

Non-traditional treatment for depression or co-occurring depression will take care of the mind, body, and soul. Still, we chose to do it most naturally, without using drugs or medication.

We heal the body

People struggling with depression or substance abuse have poor health, skip healthy meals, and damage their brains with medication.

Aches, pain, severe fatigue, headaches, constantly getting sick are some of the effects on the body when dealing with depression. People stop eating healthy food, sleep poorly, and lose interest in physical activity.

At our holistic Sanctuary, patients are helped switch to raw, plant-based, non-GMO, and organic food, giving the best nutrients. They will also benefit from proprietary IV drips, HBOT therapy, ozone therapy, liver detox, coffee enemas, and parasite/candida cleanse. These natural methods will cleanse the body from the toxic residue from chemicals and medication.

Myers cocktail, GABA repair, mitochondria repair protocol will also be part of your recovery program at our treatment center. Mind-body therapies are also provided to the patients, as every detail matters for one's recovery. Proprietary chakra rebalancing, yoga, meditation, and massage therapies are all methods used in traditional and non-traditional centers. Still, we only use the methods that work for you, with increased precautions to your particularities and severity of depression.

We heal the mind

It has been revealed that people with depression, addiction, or other mental health problems would damage the brain. Negative thinking actually affects the brain, so depression would have to learn new ways of approaching life.

But it's easier to say than done; we consider that it's not only cognitive-behavioral therapy doing all the work. We care for our clients and value one-on-one therapy sessions. We believe that the patient should focus exclusively on his recovery. Group therapy can lose focus from his problems, using the already poor mental and emotional resources for someone else's recovery.

It's the same with family therapy, which isn't our no.1 method for treating patients with depression. The family doesn't always provide healthy relationships, so it's not always beneficial to our clients and can slow down the recovery process. Families and our staff can support the patients in other ways; sometimes, simply taking one's tasks and responsibilities around the house could be enough to sustain the recovery.

We heal the soul

Depression, co-occurring depression, addiction, PTSD, anxiety can occur from unsolved deep traumas. More often than not, people don't develop the most positive coping mechanisms, ending up struggling with depression or addiction.

People need to learn new ways to deal with what life throws at them. We use only natural methods and products to help our patients face their deepest feelings and traumas and even see how their new life can. We do it with much regard for the safety of our patients. Doctors are always on the premises ready to help in emergencies, whereas psychiatrists approve to which clients can benefit from the innovative methods.

We're not your regular rehab, nor the common non-traditional rehab. We will get you free from your depression or addiction and help you live the best life.

Our daughter went through rapid detox about 4 months ago. She was addicted to opiates after pain suffered in a car accident over 2 years ago. Through counseling, she finally decided that she "wanted to get her life back." We did not know that she was addicted, but we knew that she was in constant pain,
