Do You Suffer from Clinical Depression?

Man speaks to his therapist at a depression treatment centerLike anxiety, an occasional episode of depression is normal and even a sign that you are healthy. When you feel depressed all of the time, however, then you may want to consider that you have a mental disorder.

Do you exhibit these symptoms of clinical depression regularly such as:

  • Generally low mood (anxiety, apathy, sadness, loss of interest in activities)
  • Feeling restless, isolated, or irritable, feeling like you want to cry
  • Getting too little or too much sleep, erratic sleep patterns
  • Loss of appetite or loss of energy and motivation
  • Inability to focus or concentrate on any one thing, feeling scatterbrained
  • Sudden weight gain or weight loss

Anyone of these symptoms may not indicate clinical depression. However, if you have two or more of these symptoms, you may want to get help with depression therapy.

The only exception to this rule of thumb is this: If you experience suicidal thoughts, then you should seek help right away. Talk to your doctor, call a friend, or reach out to a treatment center. Green Mountain Treatment is here to listen and to provide support if you suffer from depression and have suicidal thoughts.

  • Holistic treatment and activities
  • Psychotherapy program

The goal of therapy is to provide long-term treatment that provides full healing and recovery from depression. We do more than just treat the symptoms. We explore all factors involved in your depression such as genetics, environment, relationships, work conditions, or physical/health problems you are dealing with.

Dual Diagnosis: Treating Depression and Addiction

When a person is unable to cope with depression, they may turn to drugs or alcohol as a means of self-medicating. Depression can trigger an addiction to alcohol, narcotics, or prescription medication. In turn, an addiction can intensify the symptoms of your depression.

Through dual diagnosis, we can address both your addiction and your depression. We can provide a treatment plan for each so that you get help for both. Dual diagnosis puts you on a track to full recovery for both your mental disorder and substance abuse.
