What Is Major Depression and How Is It Treated?

Major depression (or “clinical depression”) is a mental health issue that can cause severe disruptions to a person’s overall quality of life. While everyone feels sad from time to time, a sadness that affects a person’s ability to function in their everyday life for weeks or months on end might be major depression. Suffering from major depression can be painful, but there is hope! Iris Wellness Group can help you or a loved one learn to manage symptoms to get back on track to living a fulfilling and happy life.
Iris Wellness Group understands that no two people experience depression in the same way. We offer a variety of treatment methods to help you find the best pathway to recovery!
 
Depression is commonly treated with a combination of these modalities:
 
Psychiatric:
  • Medications can be effective in managing symptoms of depression
  • Some medications can be used in the short-term as the person learns new coping skills and gradually stops using medications
  • Other people benefit from the long-term use of psychiatric medications, due to chemical disruptions of the brain’s “feel-good” chemicals

 

Counseling and individual therapy:
  • Often referred to as “talk-therapy,” many counselors or therapists are trained in various modalities to meet your needs
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) are two examples of evidence-based practices available at Iris Wellness Group.

 

Dual-Diagnosis Treatment
  • “Dual-Diagnosis Treatment” refers to treating both depression and addiction (substance or process) simultaneously

 

At Iris Wellness Group, we know that treating both addiction and underlying mental health issues together is the best pathway for a successful recovery
