Depression is a cruel condition. According to Healthline, this illness affects at least one in 10 Americans, but more than 80% of those people are not seeking treatment for their symptoms. For many depression sufferers, this is because the illness itself makes them less likely to seek treatment on their own. To make matters worse, many people have a dual-diagnosis of depression and another condition, which makes it even harder to seek treatment.


If you suffer from depression, you need access to the best depression treatment centers in your area. At theFix.com, we’ll show you what to look for when it comes to treatments for depression and co-occuring disorders.


What Depression Treatment Centers Should Offer


There are many different types of depression treatment centers, including group homes, work or farm-based facilities, apartment-style facilities, residential treatment facilities, and luxury depression treatment centers. Each type of facility works a little bit differently but no matter which type of facility you choose, they should all share the following four things:


  • Opportunities to Socialize: People that suffer from depression or those that have dual diagnoses of depression and other mental health disorders are often driven to isolate themselves from society. Your treatment facility should offer numerous social opportunities to help you overcome that sense of isolation.
  • Family Friendly Treatment: Depression is often deeply misunderstood by friends and family members. The best depression treatment centers will offer to work with your family so that your loved ones better understand your needs.
  • Aftercare: Treatment for depression doesn’t stop once you leave the treatment facility. Ensure that the facility you choose provides a treatment plan once your stay at the treatment center is over.
  • Proven Success: All treatment centers should be able to verify that the treatments they offer are successful in a majority of cases. Learn about the types of treatments that each facility offers and then do plenty of research online to make sure that each treatment is trusted among the medical community.
