Depression is most commonly treated through a combination of medication, behavioral therapy, and counseling. Medications—usually antidepressants—may be a short or long-term part of your treatment plan, which our treatment team will monitor.
Antidepressants help regulate serotonin, dopamine, and other neurotransmitters that play a role in your mood in order to help combat the effects of depression. Keep in mind that medication is not a quick fix, but rather a part of your holistic treatment plan, which may take
weeks to months for you to see a significant reduction in symptoms.
Therapy can range from individual sessions to group therapy and family therapy, depending on the specific needs of the patient. Two of the most common therapeutic modalities employed in the treatment of depression include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and talk therapy. Both
involve identifying tools and mindset shifts that can help you cope with signs of depression when they arise and claim more control over your life.
You are not alone at Bold Steps. From group therapy and community support to education workshops, you will receive every tool possible to help you change your life and heal.
