Depression Treatment & Rehabilitation for Depression:
Depression Rehab Center
Depression is so very common, yet so often misunderstood as an illness, with the result that most people never get proper depression treatment. This is a real tragedy because with proper depression rehab anyone with depression can make significant improvement. Appropriate, customized and integrated therapies are the mainstays of treatment. At Morningside Recovery, rehab treatment for depression is comprehensive, with a clinically appropriate combination of exercise, nutrition and therapy regimens.
There are huge differences in therapeutic approaches, but anyone would agree that a therapy should “work.” In other words, it is a therapist’s job to assess whether a particular person can benefit from a particular approach, a depression treatment regimen. Morningside Recovery’s therapists are highly trained, and these professionals are from diverse backgrounds so that clients can then be placed in the best possible therapeutic path towards their own mental health solutions.
Therapists at Morningside will steer clients toward the best depression rehab treatment for their unique types of depression, from mood discorders to recurrent depression to MDD. If a therapist and client decide that a certain approach isn’t helping, other forms of therapy are reviewed and considered. In both group and individual therapy, the client’s progress is constantly monitored and assessed. Treatment at Morningside recognizes that clients’ beliefs reflect the traditions of their own culture, society, religious background; as such, for clients of such diverse backgrounds, one size (i.e., approach or type of therapy) does not fit all.
Depression: Treatment, Choices, Change
Many clients say they have picked up beliefs and attitudes over the course of their lives that are hard to change. Many clients, for example, report that they didn’t know why they slept so much or so frequently, may have eaten too much or perhaps may have overreacted to minor changes in their lives. Morningside Recovery empowers clients to change the behaviors which simply are not helpful to daily living. Clients learn that they can choose how they feel, through workshops and exercises. So often, when people are faced with a problem or difficult situation, their thoughts and belief systems will come into play, yielding a subjective determination their feelings and responses; Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) can provide valuable skills and techniques for a client to observe his or her own thought patterns and begin the process of retraining them. The goal of depression rehab is to enable clients to drop the negative thinking or misinterpretations that make their depression patterns worse.
Another approach for rehabilitation from depression is Interpersonal Therapy (IPT). Like CBT, Interpersonal Therapy doesn’t claim to cure depression or solve every problem in a person’s life. And unlike some mindsets, IPT doesn’t ask an individual to change everything about his or her life and personality. IPT actively aims to solve problems by being focused rather than open-ended. IPT usually sets a time-frame or goal with identifiable results. More importantly, IPT is based in the present rather than the past. IPT focuses on interpersonal relationships with the idea that emotional problems and behavioral issues are explored in terms of interpersonal relations.
As clients move through depression treatment, they work on developing an ability to maintain active involvement in daily life activities, and the ability to continue functioning as a spouse, parent, employee, and other roles in life. With this in mind, Morningside Recovery encourages clients to enjoy the beautiful community of Newport Beach, Southern California, while fostering good communication with the family back at home. Just as clients learn about living in greater stability as they actively pursue their treatment for depression, so does the family in turn learn about the mental health disease afflicting their loved one. Morningside Recovery takes a comprehensive approach to treating the unique aspects and characteristics of each client’s depressive illness.
