Depression

Core Recovery works with clients who may be suffering from mental health issues such as depression.  Several of our clinicians also specialize in working with trauma recovery, which is often an underlying issue of depression, anxiety, and addictions.

Core Recovery provides a caring and nonjudgmental atmosphere to address issues such as anxiety and depression. If you are struggling with depression please know that you are not alone and you do not have to continue to feel this way.

1 in 10 Americans experience difficulties with depression. We work with clients to identify the issues that are underlying the depression. We use a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy, trauma resolution, and mindfulness to assist clients in gaining relief from these symptoms.

Signs and Symptoms

If you have been experiencing some of the following signs and symptoms most of the day, nearly every day, for at least two weeks, you may be suffering from depression:

  • Persistent sad, anxious, or “empty” mood
  • Feelings of hopelessness, or pessimism
  • Irritability
  • Feelings of guilt, worthlessness, or helplessness
  • Loss of interest or pleasure in hobbies and activities
  • Decreased energy or fatigue
  • Moving or talking more slowly
  • Feeling restless or having trouble sitting still
  • Difficulty concentrating, remembering, or making decisions
  • Difficulty sleeping, early-morning awakening, or oversleeping
  • Appetite and/or weight changes
  • Thoughts of death or suicide, or suicide attempts
  • Aches or pains, headaches, cramps, or digestive problems without a clear physical cause and/or that do not ease even with treatment

Risk factors include:

  • Personal or family history of depression
  • Major life changes, trauma, or stress
  • Certain physical illnesses and medications

Not everyone who is depressed experiences every symptom. Some people experience only a few symptoms while others may experience many. Several persistent symptoms in addition to low mood are required for a diagnosis of major depression, but people with only a few – but distressing – symptoms may benefit from treatment of their “subsyndromal” depression. The severity and frequency of symptoms and how long they last will vary depending on the individual and his or her particular illness. Symptoms may also vary depending on the stage of the illness.

Partial Hospitalization PHP

Partial hospitalization is a nonresidential treatment program. The program provides diagnostic and treatment services on a level of intensity similar to an inpatient program, but on less than a 24-hour basis. These services can include therapeutic milieu, nursing, psychiatric evaluation, medication management, group, individual and family therapy. The environment at this level of treatment is highly structured. Partial Hospitalization may be appropriate as a time-limited response to stabilize acute symptoms, transition (step-down from inpatient), or as a stand-alone service to stabilize a deteriorating condition and avert hospitalization.
