Disorder Rehabilitation | Depression
The professionals at The Sanctuary at Sedona understand that depression can consume a life. It depletes your mental, emotional and physical energy; fills you with painful thoughts and feelings, and appears so inescapable at times that you wonder if life is even worth living. Depression can last for years or decades with seemingly no hope of change.
Depression is often attributed to a chemical imbalance in the brain. Those living with chronic depression may agree because they have tried to break out of the downward spiral and, despite their best efforts, have continued to struggle with bouts throughout the years. While there is scientific evidence that this is not always the case, our holistic depression treatment center located in Sedona, AZ practices ways to change the brain and recover.
While medication can be helpful as a short-term intervention, it has unfortunately become a lifestyle for many. It is now estimated, for example, that 1-in-10 Americans take an anti-depressant. You are certainly not alone if you have heard the phrase, “You will be on medication for the rest of your life.” The problem, however, is that all medication has side effects and one must weigh the costs vs. the benefits of any medication taken. Also, the chronic use of medication for depression suggests that there is something wrong with the brain and the brain cannot come into balance on its own. Medication alone does not resolve the underlying causes of depression for everyone and that’s why our alternative treatment center for depression is here to help.
The experts at our holistic depression treatment center in Sedona, AZ know that research points to depression and addiction being strongly linked. They are common co-occurring conditions and many people have struggled for years with both. Each condition contributes to the severity of the other and when one is untreated, or only partially resolved, it can trigger a relapse of the other. Recent research tells us that the relationship between depression and addiction occurs on many levels. Some of these links include:
Stimulants such as cocaine and methamphetamine have well-known depressive effects between periods of use and in early abstinence because they deplete the brain’s natural mood elevating chemistry.
