Depression is a clinically diagnosed mood disorder that is characterized by consistent feelings of sadness. Patients who experience depression symptoms often pull back from their beloved hobbies, close relationships, career pursuits, academic responsibilities, and general life participation.
Patients often suffer from negative or harmful thought processes and unhealthy coping mechanisms. In some cases, the symptoms of depression can be exacerbated by the presence of co-occurring disorders (or a dual diagnosis), such as Substance Use Disorder (SUD) or General Anxiety Disorder.
Symptoms of Depression
Depression symptoms may vary from patient to patient but will have a general impact on sleep, appetite, and energy. Symptoms common for depression patients include:
- Irregular sleep patterns
- Reduced joy or pleasure in interests
- Thoughts of worthlessness
- Feelings of guilt
- Inability to focus
- Drastic weight changes or lack of appetite
- Suicidal thoughts
- Reduced functionality
- Influence substance abuse
If you or someone you love is suffering from any or all of these symptoms, find relief in skilled and compassionate rehab for depression. Contact Achieve Wellness Today to evaluate your treatment options.
Defining The Different Depressive Disorders
According to the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5), depressive disorders are categorized into five different classifications:
- Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder;
- Major depressive disorder
- Persistent depressive disorder (dysthymia)
- Premenstrual dysphoric disorder
- Depressive disorder due to another medical condition
No matter what the official diagnosis is, all depressive disorders are defined by their impact on how you feel and function. From feelings of emptiness and reduced daily function, the disorder begins to shape who you are.
You can shape your life to be more aligned with your goals and your potential. Effective and individualized treatment can help.
Did you know that 60% of people with mental health concerns don’t seek professional help? That means only 40% of people suffering are pursuing the help they need. It’s also important to note that antidepressants aren’t the only treatment solution available.
In many cases, medications can cause additional complications, especially if taken outside of their prescribed dose or taken for too long. There are other solutions available to help you or a loved one overcome the struggle with depression.
With our individualized treatment plan for depression rehab, our patients undergo a detailed and comprehensive evaluation. Based on this information, our treatment team will design a custom schedule for treatment programs designed to promote holistic healing and future success.
