AmeriHealth Depression Treatment

Everyone feels sad or low at some point in their lives, but depression is something very, very different.

How Do I Know If I'm Depressed?

If you're looking up information on AmeriHealth depression treatment centers, chances are you're already concerned that you or someone you love needs treatment for depression, but if you're still not sure here are some signs and symptoms associated with a depression disorder:

  • Feelings of sadness, anxiety, or emptiness that don't go away
  • Feeling pessimistic or hopeless about your life and/or the world around you
  • Experiencing unexplained but persistent feelings of guilt, hopelessness, or worthlessness
  • Decreased interest in usual hobbies or favorite activities
  • Lack of energy
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty concentrating or making decisions
  • Fuzzy memory
  • Sleep issues like insomnia or early-morning awakening
  • Oversleeping/inability to get out of bed in the morning
  • Lack of appetite or increased appetite
  • Weight changes
  • Restlessness
  • Irritability and anxiety
  • Suicidal thoughts or suicide attempts

Depression can also manifest itself as physical symptoms, such as:

  • Chronic pain
  • Back pain
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle aches
  • Chest discomfort
  • Digestive problems
  • Feeling "worn out"
  • Feeling dizzy or lightheaded

The specialists on staff at your available AmeriHealth depression treatment centers are well-trained in techniques that will address the mental, emotional, and physical effects of your depression disorder.

Treatment for Depression

The type of care you'll receive may vary across the network of AmeriHealth depression treatment centers, with any or all of the following approaches incorporated into your physician-guided treatment plan:

  • Medication – Your physician or psychiatrist can prescribe medication designed to address the biological basis of depression. Some medications help rebalance out brain chemistry, stabilize mood swings, or act as antipsychotics, while others treat physical effects rather than the root cause.
  • Psychological – Most AmeriHealth depression treatment centers will likely have therapists on staff who specialize in counseling individuals suffering from depression. Through interpersonal therapy sessions, group counseling, behavioral and cognitive therapy, and other therapeutic techniques, you can begin to work on identifying your triggers and controlling your responses so you can develop more positive approaches to life's many complications.

No treatment plan is "one size fits all," and it may take time to find the combination of therapy and medication that works best for you. Stay strong - the outcome is worth the wait.

Focusing On Your Future

Ultimately, your team of specialists will likely use many forms of treatment to give you the best chance at strong and prolonged recovery. Explore your benefits now and enroll in the facility that's right for you today.
