You Are Not Alone

Finding Support for Major
Depressive Disorder

Major depression can affect any individual from any walk of life, regardless of age, ethnicity, or background. For some individuals, this mental disorder can take over their lives, damage relationships, and in some cases, cause major physical and mental health concerns. Fortunately, Enlight provides depression treatment that can provide an enormous benefit for those struggling with mental health disorders.

 If you or a loved one are considering treatment centers that provide professional depression treatment, you are in the right place. With the support of a mental health professional, we can help you get your mental health back on track, and pave the way for a brighter future.

What Causes Clinical Depression?

Several factors can play a role in depression, including biochemistry, genetics, personality, and environmental factors. Depression brought on by a person’s biochemistry means that there are differences in certain chemicals in a person’s brain that may contribute to symptoms of depression. Genetically, depression can run in families – a relative with a depressive disorder may pass this down.

Personality is another factor that has been proven to bring on depression. People with low self-esteem who are easily overwhelmed tend to have a higher risk of developing depression. Factors within your environment can also lead to depression. Fortunately, with the right support, treatment for severe depression can provide notable results for those who are suffering

When to Get Help

A person who experiences depression is at an increased risk for both immediate and long-term health effects. Therefore it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible. Some negative effects of untreated depression include:

  • Lingering suicidal thoughts or behaviors
  • Discord with friends or family
  • Failure to make progress in school
  • Failure to perform at work
  • Financial instability
  • Inability to maintain a job
  • Medical conditions due to lack of self-care
  • Substance use that can lead to addiction
  • Onset or worsening of other mental health disorders
  • Withdrawal or isolation and self-harm

When any of these negative conditions arise, it is time to seek help from a depression treatment center. Luckily, depression is among the most treatable mental disorders, and somewhere between 80-90% of those with depression eventually respond well to treatment and almost 100% gain relief from their symptoms.

Untreated depression can cause several different long-term effects including relationship and family problems, difficulty keeping a job, and can lead to serious addiction and substance abuse disorders.

What to Expect at Enlight

Luxury Depression Treatment
Centers California

There is not one simple solution to treating depression, however, there is a range of extremely effective techniques that are individual to each person’s condition, and health professionals are available and trained to treat people facing symptoms that stem from depression. At Enlight Treatment Center, we prioritize customized care for your specific needs and ensure you are receiving the guidance and support necessary to treat your unique symptoms of depression. Here is what to expect at our facility:

Intake and Admissions

Before treatment, our health professionals at our Enlight Treatment Center will conduct a thorough diagnostic evaluation. Our team of professionals is experienced in treating mental illnesses and provides a variety of resources to help individuals overcome depression and anxiety disorders. This includes an interview and a physical examination to determine any imbalances that may be caused by a medical condition such as a thyroid problem or vitamin deficiency.

This evaluation will also explore medical and family histories as well as cultural and environmental factors that may be leading to symptoms of depression, or other mental illnesses.

Therapy for Major Depression

At Enlight, we treat depression with short-term and immediately impactful modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. Our services also include family therapy and group therapy, when applicable.

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy used to treat depression that modifies thought patterns to change moods and behaviors. CBT is based on the idea that actions or feelings are the results of current distorted thoughts or beliefs, not unconscious forces from the past. This type of therapy is a short-term approach, and other therapies may require several years to reach discovery and treatment.
  • Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) is a type of therapy that helps you identify irrational beliefs and negative thought patterns that may lead to emotional or behavioral issues. REBT is grounded in the belief that people generally wish to do well in life and helps them shift their mindset to this way of thinking.
  • Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) places focus on a person’s present and future circumstances and goals rather than past experiences. With SFBT, a therapist will encourage those in treatment to develop a vision of the future and offer tangible means of support as they help determine skills, resources, and abilities needed to achieve that specific vision.

Dual Diagnosis FOr Addiction and Depression

Treatment For a Brighter Future

At Enlight Treatment Center, we acknowledge the fact that in a dual diagnosis case, it’s futile to treat one condition and overlook the other. Therefore, we simultaneously address co-occurring disorders to increase the chances of a successful recovery. For the right individual, our dual diagnosis program that addresses depression alongside addiction or substance abuse creates powerful results.

If you or a loved one is experiencing depression alongside a substance abuse disorder, speak with one of our team members to determine if dual diagnosis care is the right fit for your needs.
