Depression is a devastating but treatable condition. Our treatments for depression are evidence-based and effective. It’s possible to experience joy again. We can help.

What Is Inpatient Depression Treatment Like?

Symptoms of depression vary from person to person. The underlying contributors of depression are different as well. That’s why Promises doesn’t use a cookie-cutter approach to depression treatment. We tailor the types of therapies we use to your individual situation. Our mental health professionals draw on traditional and alternative approaches. Treatment plans are flexible and shift with your needs. Central components of treatment for depression may include:

Behavioral Therapy With Mental Health Professionals

For instance, issues like past trauma, stress and substance abuse can lead to depressive symptoms. A trained mental health professional will help you tackle these issues.

Promises’ counselors may draw on approaches like:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to help you change negative thought patterns. A very effective treatment for depression, Cognitive behavioral therapy helps you replace unhealthy thinking patterns and beliefs with more constructive ones. CBT can help you develop long-term skills for healthy living.
  • Trauma therapies like EMDR if you’re struggling with PTSD rooted in past difficulties.
  • Psychodynamic therapy to address emotional issues that may stem from early childhood experiences.
  • Interpersonal therapy to identify issues within relationships and learn new skills to improve them.

Treatment for Co-Occurring Substance Abuse

Substance abuse and psychiatric conditions like depression and anxiety disorders often go hand-in-hand.  Data shows people that abuse substances are four times more likely to be depressed. Whether you have severe depression or high-functioning depression, you may abuse alcohol or drugs to soothe your depressive symptoms. Perhaps substance abuse is contributing to your depressive symptoms. Whichever came first, Promises’ addiction specialists will help you recover from drug and alcohol abuse. We offer medical detox if necessary.

Medical treatment for alcohol and drug detox includes:

  • 24/7 care by our medical team
  • Prescribed medications to ease withdrawal symptoms
  • Comfortable setting

You’ll learn about triggers that drive you to abuse substances. We’ll teach you healthy coping skills so you can navigate these triggers successfully after treatment. We’ll also introduce you to support groups like the 12 Steps.

Group Therapy With Peers in Treatment

Connecting with others who share similar struggles can be transforming. Group therapy programs help you feel less alone in your struggles. Mental health professionals provide expert guidance as you interact with peers. Group therapy can also serve as a mirror of sorts. You may see yourself in others. You’ll also gain a better understanding of how others perceive you. You may find similar relationship issues outside of treatment surface in group therapy. This form of treatment gives you an opportunity to work through those issues with professional help.

Regular Psychiatric Care

Clinical depression can stem from imbalances in brain chemicals like serotonin and norepinephrine.  These are chemicals that help regulate your mood. Promises’ psychiatric team will assess your depressive symptoms to determine if antidepressant medication may help. If you’re already taking prescribed medication, we’ll make sure it’s working effectively. We may change your dosage or try a different medication for depression if appropriate.

People with depression and related disorders show much improvement with a combination of antidepressant medication and psychotherapy. Types of antidepressant medication include:

  • Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRIs)
  • Monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs)
  • Tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs)
  • Tricyclic antidepressants

Promises’ psychiatric team will determine if your depressive symptoms are decreasing and make adjustments. Medication for depression is in combination with intensive behavioral therapy for the best results.

Traditional and Alternative Depression Treatments

Why Residential Depression Treatment?

Outpatient care often provides effective treatment for depression, but inpatient treatment could be necessary in severe depression cases.  Research finds that inpatient depression treatment is especially effective in cases of severe depression when it co-occurs with other disorders.

Inpatient depression treatment programs can provide the intensive, 24/7 care needed to recover from:

  • Severe depression that doesn’t get better with outpatient rehab
  • Co-occurring issues and related disorders such as:
  • Self-harm behaviors like cutting
  • Thoughts of suicide
  • An inability to function in everyday life, which may include:
    • Jeopardizing a job or school status
    • Straining relationships
    • Neglecting self-care

An inpatient depression treatment center provides intensive, research-backed care. It offers space away from life’s stressors so you can focus on getting better. You’re able to try a number of effective treatments for depression to gauge which approaches will work for you long-term. You also receive regular follow-up for prescribed medications so you can get dosages just right.

The good news is that depression is highly treatable. Most people who receive appropriate treatment and follow-up care get better. Sometimes they enjoy a complete remission of their symptoms.

Does Insurance Cover Inpatient Depression Treatment?

These days, many insurances include a behavioral health care component. This often means that they cover mental illness treatment in the same way they cover medical treatment for physical health issues. Sometimes you’ll need to meet a deductible before benefits start covering treatments for depression. Other times your insurance may cover a percentage of the cost. You may need to pay a deductible for some types of treatments.

Promises is in-network with many insurance plans. We also work with out-of-network insurances.
