Depression Treatment Center

Depression Treatment Center

Steps Recovery Center recognizes how vital the mind, body, and spirit are in their connection to the whole person. We take a holistic approach to treating those with depression that may contribute to their substance abuse; this includes treating the whole person, and find that it tends to be more successful, especially since addiction affects every aspect of a person’s life. With a customized and individualized program, a holistic approach just makes sense. It affords an opportunity to meet the patient’s physical and psychological needs and allows them to engage physically, emotionally, and mentally.

Take That First Step

What is Depression?

Depression is a medical and mental disorder. By definition, depression causes adverse effects to one’s feelings and behaviors and can elicit bodily symptoms that include:
  • Being in a state of persistent sadness or depressed mood
  • Changes in appetite, thus increasing or decreasing weight
  • Declined interest in activities and hobbies once interested or previously enjoyed
  • Feelings of worthlessness, guilt, or shame
  • Trouble thinking clearly or making decisions
  • Decreased energy and determination
  • Declining physical activity
  • Interrupted sleep patterns that may lead to insomnia or sleeping too much
There are different types of depression: persistent depressive disorders,(dysthymia) bipolar disorder, seasonal affective disorder, (SAD) psychotic depression, postpartum depression, premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), situational depression, and atypical depression.

Depression and Substance Abuse

Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, substance abuse and depression go hand-in-hand. It’s usually necessary that a person dealing with this dual-diagnosis get help from a depression treatment center that can tackle both problems at once. It’s a chicken and egg situation. Did the depression cause substance abuse, or did the substance abuse cause depression, of which several drugs are downers or depressants?

Some of these drugs are alcohol, barbiturates, and Benzodiazepines, so it’s not surprising if someone going through depression drowns their sadness in alcohol or other drugs. Having the ability to treat both conditions can make all the difference in a person getting control over their life and recovering from both disorders.

  • Dual diagnosis treatment

Depression Treatment

The treatment programs found in depression treatment centers found to be effective for depressive disorders usually include:
  • Residential treatment program
  • On-site drug detox
  • Drug and alcohol rehab
  • Dual diagnosis treatment
Depending on what type of depression a person suffers from and their comorbid substance abuse, we at Steps may combine several treatment modalities that have shown success. When you or a family member is admitted to our facility, you will speak to an admissions counselor that will take down your history of depression and substance abuse, if applicable. You will be placed in the hands of a caring and supportive recovery team who has your back with every step of the process.

Your individualized plan may include various methods of treatment, such as psychotherapy, trauma therapy treatment, EMDR, Reiki, nutritional therapy, exercise, meditation, yoga, 12-step program, and more.

What to Expect

When you are admitted into our facility, you will begin the process of recovery through stages. The first phase is drug detox (if needed) and social detoxification. In essence, this focuses on peer and social support and provides care for clients who have severe withdrawal symptoms and need 24-hour assistance.

Stage two is the diagnosis and customized care. You or a loved one will be put in an inpatient residential treatment or continuing care program, or it may include outpatient care; this includes day treatment, intensive outpatient, general outpatient, or transition treatment.

Stage three is the final step of the program that targets transitional care to a stable life through sober living. Steps guarantee that those individuals who go through our program are welcome to come back at any time for any reason for additional support—without charge for life. The standard residency fee may apply, so please for details.

Steps Recovery is the place you go if you want a caring and understanding program. They have helped me gain knowledge about myself and what I want/need to do. The staff there can relate and help you through core issues and they push you to do better because being in this program you know you can do big and amazing things. Also the therapists there are awesome and walk with you through struggles of life and give you the tools you truly need. Overall this place is an amazing opportunity and you’d be missing out on a lot if you chose to not at least try this program.

The staff and facility is amazing- Couldn’t ask for anything better. The program is well rounded with rec activities, equine therapy, gender therapy, group therapy, individual and couples therapy, and also attends various 12 Step support groups such as AA or NA. They also have family therapy and processing with options for individual settings or in a group. These help families understand what their loved ones who suffer from addiction is going through and how to support them, and also gives them their own support system.

This place saved my life! The therapists were very helpful, friendly and really cared about the clients wellbeing. The tech’s were alway helpful with meds and anything that was needed. House manager was amazing, had high expectations on job duties, and kept a very clean organized atmosphere. Food was always amazing. I never went hungry! The information and skills that I have learned and applied to my life are priceless. If you’re not willing to put forth the work to change your life this is not your place, but if you are this is the first Step to take. I Love everyone at Steps. Thank you for all your help

I’d been to other recovery centers before but this one was the best, it stuck because I was willing to do the work, and with the help I received from staff I am now celebrating a year of sobriety in a couple of days. Update; I’m now 18 months sober as of yesterday and I still keep in touch with my steps family. The lessons I learned at steps will stick with me for the rest of my life. Thank you for giving me my life back.
