Of all the mental health problems, depression is the most common issue that plagues 1 in 15 American adults, as stated by the American Psychiatric Association. It is even estimated that one in six people will experience depression at some point in their life.

While it is normal to feel sad from time to time, depression operates in an entirely different realm. It can severely impact one's general well-being and outlook in life, and if aggravated, can disrupt one's day-to-day activities.  That is why it is crucial for people suffering from depression to seek immediate help with their mental health--something that Transcend Recovery Community can offer with its comprehensive programs and services.

What Is Depression Treatment?

People often think that depression is "just sadness." But the truth is it stems deeper and has impacted many lives, especially when there is no proper and effective treatment for depression readily available for them.

Depression treatment is a form of therapy or relief given to an individual suffering from it and struggling to control their feelings and behaviors which may affect their daily living and hinder them from having healthy & meaningful lives. When someone seeking treatment either from a depression treatment center or through recognized treatment facilities successfully overcomes their depressive state, they then regain control and lead a healthier life.

What Is The Primary Cause Of Depression?

A person suffering from depression, a serious mental illness plaguing millions worldwide, may be triggered by various internal and external factors that could worsen their mental state altogether. If left untreated, it may lead to worsened mental health disorders such as co-occurring disorders such as substance abuse disorder.

We can group these causes into two main types:

Life Events

Serious and often traumatic life events may impact someone deeply that they undergo severe depression. It can arise due to a death or loss of a loved one, prolonged stress from work, continuous conflict from work or school, or at home with family members, unemployment, and any form of abuse (physical, verbal, emotional, and sexual).

Personal Factors

Personal factors are internal elements that largely contribute, and can be a leading cause when depression is developed. It can be with age, genes, gender, and substance abuse (including addiction to drugs and alcohol).

It is important that when someone has one of these factors or causes as warning signs, they should immediately seek treatment starting by consulting their local health department or admissions counselors to better diagnose and give them the right mental health treatment programs conducive to their situation.

How Do You Treat Depression?

Treating depression isn't as simple as one might think. It involves extra precautionary measures at the same time identifying the right individualized treatment plan to ensure that the individual would respond positively and in turn, would face a new beginning when it comes to getting better mentally.

The usual route of treatment involves medication therapies and psychotherapy. Medication relieves an individual from their symptoms, especially if they have moderate-to-severe depression. However, it is crucial to understand that medication, such as antidepressants, doesn't cure the root cause of depression and further diagnosis is needed to better help specialists on shedding light on someone's depressive condition.

Meanwhile, psychotherapy comes in many forms such as cognitive behavioral therapy, family therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, eye movement desensitization, support groups, and family sessions. These are evidence-based therapies that are proven to help individuals cope with their depression and improve their interpersonal relationships with their loved ones.

What Are General Methods Used To Treat Depression?

There are many additional resources for people to cope with their depression symptoms and rehabilitate themselves as well from other underlying mental health concerns, such as substance use disorder and anxiety. People can have their free online assessment to find out the best course of action for their treatment.

Pharmacological Treatment

This type of treatment involves the administration of medication that may involve antidepressants, monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), Serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), mood stabilizers, anti-anxiety, and stimulant medications.


It is often the most recommended form of a treatment plan, especially for mild cases. It can come either in group therapy or individual therapy which reframes an individual's feelings and behaviors to deal with their depression. When a person has a co-occurring disorder, such as anxiety and drugs & alcohol addiction, they may opt to stay temporarily at a residential treatment center to better focus on their therapies as well as get ample support from caregivers who treat them with much respect and dignity, while valuing their feelings well.

TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation)

This non-invasive procedure directs magnetic energy pulses at the regions of the brain responsible for mood alteration. Depression treatment programs calling for TMS are often reserved when patients are resistant to therapy and medication and show signs of deteriorating.

Alternative medicine

This form of depression treatment is unique as it uses a holistic approach. It teaches mindfulness and meditation as a means to combat their depression, which can be through acupuncture, relaxation techniques (yoga & tai chi), guided imagery, and music/art therapy.

Can Depression Be Cured?

While depression can't be fully cured, there is still hope for someone to receive treatment to improve their feelings and overall mental well-being. It is said that 80% and 90% of people respond well to treatment from a depression treatment center whether through group therapy, individual therapy, or depression treatment programs that tackle their co-occurring symptoms, and even addiction treatment.

For as long as an individual follows through with the depression treatment programs prescribed to them by a residential treatment center or a depression treatment center, they are sure to experience signs of progress and have hope for a normal life.

People who have undergone successful treatment for depression should follow up on their treatment programs by enrolling in a relapse prevention program, especially if they have also undergone addiction treatment from a depression treatment center or residential treatment facility. This admission process is crucial if they wish to remain stable longer-term while embracing the lifestyle changes that may come along with this metamorphosis.
