When most of us think of residential rehabilitation and treatment centers, we automatically think of drug and alcohol rehabs. However, substance abuse or addiction is often only the tip of the iceberg for people who suffer from severe depression. In many cases, substance abuse may not even be present for an individual to require treatment from a rehabilitation center. Depression and anxiety can cripple a person, causing them to use drugs or even to display signs and symptoms of someone who is under the influence of drugs.
Maui Recovery is proud to offer Hawaii's most comprehensive program for chronic depression. If you have tried outpatient treatment for depression, self-help techniques, or even medication but have failed to break free from depression, why don't you give us a call? We can help you.
Do I Really Need Rehab Treatment for Depression?
The fact is; everybody suffers from depression at some point and to some degree in their lives. Surely, not everybody requires residential treatment for depression as bouts of it come and go naturally. Some people do better with outpatient depression treatment than they do with inpatient depression treatment. However, some people get to a place where they need residential treatment.
If you find that your depression is substantially interfering with your ability to function, then residential treatment might be a good option for you. A lot of times, people with depression develop co-occurring disorders, which is when the person uses drugs in addition to having depression. Self-medication is popular among those who suffer from depression, but self-medicating only makes the cycle of depression worse. Drugs and alcohol might make a person feel better at first, but eventually, substance abuse will spiral into addiction, making the person with depression feel more hopeless and more out of control.
Residential treatment for depression at Maui Recovery will provide you with the hands-on therapy that you need in addition to 24-hour supervision, structure, and all of the endless love, encouragement, and support that you can handle. You can break free from chronic depression, and Maui Recovery can help you to do so!
