Symptoms of substance abuse or addiction can mask symptoms of mental illness, and symptoms of mental illness can be confused with symptoms of addiction. To be effective, both disorders must be treated at the same time, in the same place, by the same treatment team.
Finding the Space to Recover
Depression treatment at Clear Recovery Center allows you to focus on what truly matters, which is your recovery. Chronic depression is a serious problem that can impact your ability to make decisions, handle responsibilities, and interact with others. Serious depression may lead to the inability to function in major life areas. Self-medicating with drugs or alcohol are common among those who suffer from depression, as are thoughts of self-harm.Depression is an illness that is frequently misunderstood. Many friends, family members, and other loved ones may suggest that you “snap out of it” or “think about all the good things in your life” as a way to attempt to help you manage your depression. While these supporters are well meaning, their recommendations often trivialize the diagnosis of depression and can make it more difficult for their loved one to seek professional treatment for their illness. Clear Recovery Center can provide group and family therapy to help deal with this condition effectively.
Our supportive staff can help those around you to understand the true impacts of depression, and help your family and friends to recognize that depression isn’t just a phase, but a challenging and often overwhelming illness. While in the throes of depression, life can feel hopeless. Many people who suffer from depression believe that they will never be able to escape the dark cloud of sadness and disinterest that follows them everywhere they go. Luckily, the experience and support provided by Clear Recovery Center can change this.
