Benefits of Treatment at a Depression Rehabilitation Centre

Everyone experiences “the blues” from time to time. This is a kind of mild depression that you feel for a while that takes some of the zest from life. You may feel it when you don’t see the sun for a time, when you’re going through a minor hurdle in life, or perhaps at the end of a short relationship.

But this is not the same as severe depression. This type of depression, also known as major depressive disorder, can cause a host of symptoms that can make it feel like life is not worth living. Depression of this kind can damage every aspect of your life, causing you to lose relationships and jobs and end up in dire financial straits.

The worst depression can make it so you are unable to get out of bed. And while milder forms of depression may be treated by socializing, getting more exercise and eating healthy, this just isn’t the case with the most severe depression. When depression is so intense that you can’t face life anymore, going to a rehabilitation centre is your best option.

In this blog from Samarpan Recovery, we look at what causes depression and how a mental health centre can help you recover from depression.

Understanding Depression And Its Effects

Rates of depression vary from country to country. In the United States, around 10% of adults suffer at least one episode of depression throughout their lives. This figure is similar in many countries around the world.

Until fairly recently, many people believed that persistent depression was caused by a chemical imbalance in the brain. We now know that while this can be a contributing factor, it is not the full picture. There are many reasons why you may go through depression. These are explored later in this blog.

Depression can cause mental, physical and social effects. Depression sufferers may feel low self-esteem, apathetic and have no interest in life activities. If you have depression, you may also feel hopeless, anxious, irritable and have a general sense of despair which is with you all or most of the time.

Depression sufferers can experience fluctuations in weight, and may either be under or overweight. It is common for people with depression to experience poor physical health, due to lack of exercise, poor diet, and the effects of the mind on the body. Note that this is not always the case, and some people with depression may still exercise and look after themselves while experiencing severe depression.

Socially, people with depression can become isolated, as they no longer feel like being around people. This can be a slippery slope, as lack of human interaction may worsen the effects of depression.

How Can A Depression Rehabilitation Centre Help?

Going to a depression rehabilitation centre like Samarpan Recovery can help in a number of different ways. Here are a few of these.

A Depression Rehabilitation Centre Can Let You Relax

As we already mentioned, stress can play a massive role in the onset of depression and the continuation of depression symptoms. The expression “you can’t heal in the environment that made you sick” is applicable here. Being around the stresses that contributed towards your depression may keep pulling you down.

Spending a few hours each day attending a depression rehabilitation centre will allow you a chance to be in an environment that can help you relax and facilitate the healing process..

A Depression Rehabilitation Centre Has Vetted Mental Health Experts

While you expect the best from people working in the mental health field, not everyone you encounter will necessarily reach the high standards that are expected. Some who work in mental health may not have the experience needed to be effective at what they do, while others lack the compassion needed for such a sensitive role.

At Samarpan Recovery, all our mental health team have been carefully evaluated to make sure that they are the right people for this important work. And we continually assess our team to make sure they are working at the high level we expect from them. The end result of this is that you can be assured that you will receive absolutely first rate mental health treatment when you come to Samarpan.

A Depression Rehabilitation Centre Has Structure

Structure is vital for our mental well-being. It takes some of the uncertainty out of life, and if our routine is a healthy one, it sets us up for success in any facet of our lives. This is why structure is so important when you are recovering from depression, and it is why depression rehabilitation centres give clients a timetable they can follow that will allow them to recover from depression as quickly as possible.

Persistent Depressive Disorder Vs Major Depressive Disorder

These two conditions are very similar, however there are some differences. The most important of these is that persistent depressive order must occur for at least 2 years for a doctor to diagnose it. On the other hand, major depressive disorder experiences episodes that have a gap of at least 2 months between them.

Persistent Depressive Disorder Symptoms

Someone who has PDD often experience:

  • feeling depressed or irritable
  • having a poor appetite or overeating
  • having insomnia or sleeping too much
  • experiencing fatigue or low energy
  • having low self-esteem
  • having trouble concentrating or making decisions
  • having feelings of hopelessness

Major Depressive Disorder Symptoms

A person who suffers from MDD tends to experience:

  • A depressed mood that lasts for most of the day
  • Less interest or pleasure in most or all activities
  • Fatigue
  • Feelings of worthless or guilty
  • Difficulty concentrating and making decisions
  • Unintentionally losing or gaining a significant amount of weight
  • Trouble sleeping or sleeping too much
  • Restlessness (psychomotor agitation)
  • Finding it difficult to think, speak, and do things (psychomotor impairment)
  • Frequent thoughts of death

Both of these conditions can be treated by staying at a depression rehabilitation centre. The length of treatment time depends on a number of factors, including the reasons for the depression and the severity of the depression.
